31 - A Biblical Case for Multiethnic Ministry with Dr. Bryan Loritts
Following to Lead with Kevin East
You hear a lot of discussions today about diversity and being multiethnic. What does it mean? How do you go about changing? Kevin welcomes pastor, author, and speaker Dr. Bryan Loritts back onto Following to Lead today laying a biblical foundation for being a multiethnic ministry or business. Join them as they talk through several passages of scripture. "The longer I'm in this, the more it really does just come back to relationships and loving people... 1 Corinthians show us we have to love. Love is a powerful tool of reconciliation." If you want to learn more, check out Bryan's book, Right Color, Wrong Culture, a leadership fable challenging those around them to "reach beyond what is comfortable and restructure their leadership team."

As a pastor, father, and person of color, Dr. Loritts weighs in on the important role that Christianity and God’s word plays in family, government, and the church. What is our responsibility as Christians living in a democracy? As an avid advocate for democracy and systemic change, Dr. Loritts understands that the word of God does not fit perfectly into the political parties that America is divided into. Instead, Dr. Loritts encourages Christians to care for people of all ages and races and to vote in a way that supports human life and paves the way for an equal, peaceful world. “We need to be voting and voting in such a way that brings human flourishing.” How do we show love and acceptance for all people in our churches? Dr. Bryan Loritts experienced significant racial trauma as a black man in theology school, despite the messages that his Christian classmates and professors were teaching and preaching. To combat the racism he’s personally experienced and the systematic racism that all people of color experience in America, Dr. Loritts preaches strong messages of love, acceptance, forgiveness, and justice. “When God blesses me to get into a position of authority, I want to give back.” Are there ways to make disciples of our family? As a family man with a wife and 3 kids, Dr. Loritts believes strongly in bringing the message of God into both his marriage and his parenting. Through preparing his sons for the lives they have ahead of them and supporting his wife as his primary relationship, Dr. Loritts encourages discipleship among his family and builds a strong foundation of love and respect at home. “My kids are getting an education of what it’s like to love a woman based on watching how I treat my wife.” An excerpt from this week’s prayer: “Heavenly father, I recognize that I am a sinner and that I am in need of a savior. And I believe that your son, Jesus Christ, came down here to die for our sins. I believe that he died on the cross and that, on the third day. Lord, you are the Lord over my life, and I submit my own will and I now look to your will for my life.”
