Lessons From a Diverse Staff Leading a Diverse Church
Panel presentation, facilitated by Phil Chorlian. The North Jersey Vineyard Church is an eclectic mix of races and nationalities and this diversity is reflected in our pastoral staff. The staff members of the NJV have a unique perspective on the issue of diversity that comes from not only leading a diverse church, but also from having spent much of their Christian lives as minorities in their churches and other Christian environments. At this workshop, we’ll share our personal experiences as well as the principles that we’ve learned along the way.
