How do we help Gen Z pursue authentic Kingdom diversity?

Gen Z is the most ethnically diverse generation in American history. With the ethnic diversity of the next generation come unique opportunities and challenges that Gen Z must deal with. So how can we help Gen Z pursue authentic Kingdom diversity? How can we lead the next generation to pursue racial unity as God intended? On this episode of the podcast, Jonathan sits down with author and speaker Melissa Pellew to discuss real solutions and a way forward for helping Gen Z choose unity rather than division. Join us as we talk about why diversity is a discipleship issue, the ideas affecting Gen Z’s view of diversity, how secular social theories sometimes lead to more division, how to approach the conversation in a gospel-centered way, and why diversity is ultimately God’s idea.
