Multicultural vitality is the area in which churches identify, engage, and embrace culture differences that are ethnic, socioeconomic, political, global, and generational, whether internally or externally. Multicultural vitality is the intersection of people working with other people. We understand that the church is a culture apart from the neighborhood we live and we seek to become more relevant to the neighborhood in which we live.
