"Christianity Now" Episode VIII: Church Planting, Diversity, and the Multiethnic Church

In our eighth episode, I talk with the Rev. Dr. Beth Backes, Pastoral Care and Credentials Director at the Northwest Ministry Network. At present, Beth is in the process of laying the groundwork for a new church plant in the diverse South Sound area of Seattle. Join us for our conversation as we reflect on this specific effort together with related questions about diversity and the Church.

The goal of the "Christianity Now" podcast is to discuss faith, life, culture, ministry, and more as as we move towards the heart of the 21st century. Each installment features a conversation with guest(s) related to their expertise, training, experience, and/or a relevant theme. My hope is that this joint project of Northwest University's College of Ministry and Center for Calling and Theological Formation ends up being a unique opportunity for learning and spurring conversation.
