Hickory Grove Baptist Church (Charlotte, N.C.)
This project aimed to develop a practical framework for increasing cultural diversity in corporate worship at Hickory Grove Baptist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. Chapter 1 presents the context and rationale of HGBC while also stating the goals for equipping the ministry. Chapter 2 presents an exegesis of three passages of scripture (Gen 1:26-27; Eph 2:11-22; Rev 7:9-17) to give Christians a biblical view of cultural diversity in corporate worship. Chapter 3 presents a biblical view on diversity that moves beyond ethnicities, while focusing on practical patterns of cultural diversity in worship. Chapter 4 details and describes the project by showing what occurred each week during the six-week process. Chapter 5 gives an evaluation of the project by analyzing data and reflecting on the strengths and the weaknesses of the project.
