Your Sunday morning service won't be multiethnic unless your Saturday night social time is multiethnic.
In 2011, three pastors with hearts for “church like heaven,” Chris Beard, Marc Champagne and Mark Roser, gathered to discuss issues specific to multi-ethnic churches. They started meeting every other month, inviting others to join in the discussion. By 2012, the group expanded in numbers and also began to meet on a monthly basis. As interest continued to grow, they adopted the designation of “Mosaix Cincy Network” in 2013, and now have co-directed leadership providing traction and direction to the movement.
