On Cross Cultural Ministry

6 Jan

Randy Nabors suggests seven reasons churches don’t pursue being cross-cultural.  He shares a number of helpful insights.  The following is an example: 

“THE LACK OF CROSS CULTURAL SKILLS – These of course come from learning and experience and intention.  Most minorities learn such skills in order to survive while living in a majority context.  Missionaries learn these skills intentionally in order to serve the people group to which they are called.  We speak here of learning cultural cues, language, the history, glory, hopes, and fears of a people group.  We speak here of “friend making” across racial or cultural lines. In a country that is filling up with minority groups for the majority Christian population not to pursue these skills by intention reveals a lack of concern or love.  Might I also suggest it reveals a lack of common sense nor a will to survive by failing to accommodate to reality.”
