Dream of Destiny wants to track the progress of our churches, colleges and other ministries, sharing success stories and passing along the innovative ideas and approaches of like-minded leaders across the country. Let’s partner together to reflect the diverse landscape of believers worldwide within our own respective churches and ministries.

Here are 3 important reasons why our Christian Churches, Christian colleges, and para-ministries all across America should reflect the colorful landscape of believers around the world:

1

It coincides with the mission of the Church.
To reach every ethnic group with the Gospel (Matthew 28:18–20). Knowing God has placed persons from other nations within the proximity of a local church invites a mission response from that church. “From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us” (Acts 17:26,27).

2

It concurs with the mantle of leadership God has given the Church.
To lead the way in all aspects of truth, love, and fellowship—for the entire world to see. God placed within the Church the responsibility of leadership. And although we have been successful in many areas, we seem to be lacking in this one. It’s time for us to pick up that mantle and truly have churches that are multi-cultural, from the East Coast to the West Coast…from the Heartland to the Bible Belt. We must understand the significance of this for change to actually occur. “That all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me” (John 17:21).

3

It conveys a picture of multicultural worship.
That celebrates God’s “fearfully, and wonderfully made,” creations (psalm 139:14); because every nation, tribe, people, and language will worship together before the throne of God (Revelation 7:9–12).
