Mark DeYmaz - Innovate Day 1

Mark DeYmaz
Healthy multi-ethic church

The church should inform the culture not the other way around

Jesus prays 3 times that we would be made one in John 17 so that…
World would know that you sent me
World would know that you love them

God has to persecute the church to get her to obey

7 Core Commitments
1. Embrace dependence
2. Take intentional steps
3. Empower diverse leadership
4. Develop cross-cultural relationships
5. Pursue cross-cultural competence
6. Promote a spirit of inclusion
7. Mobilize for impact

Missions isn’t a program, it is who we are
