The National Diversity Team “After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb.” (Revelation 7:9) What an awesome sight!!! A countless assembly of God’s people standing before the eternal, allencompassing throne of the Most High God and the precious, redeeming Lamb, Jesus Christ. Through this timeless, albeit time-fulﬁlling prophetic writing, we get a wonderful glimpse into heaven. We not only see the majestic throne and the sacriﬁcial Lamb, we also see people from EVERY nation, tribe, people group and language present in this awesome picture of the Kingdom of Heaven. Unfortunately, the church as a whole has fallen short of looking like the diverse, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, multi-national and multi-lingual picture of Heaven that John so eloquently describes. It is because of this disparity that the National Diversity Team exists. Our call is to serve the body of Christ in the area of diversity so that the corporate earthly expression of the Kingdom of Heaven (the Church) will truly model the Kingdom that it was established to represent. The National Diversity Team is made up of Christians from around the country that possess a heart for true diversity, as well as the desire to
work with and serve others to see that true diversity happens. Our approach is two-fold: 1.
Assemble, train and send National Diversity Team members from around the country to serve local house churches and networks in their area to model and live out true diversity intentionally. Be a resource to local house churches and networks that wish to become truly diverse by serving and walking them through the process.
The house church movement has been cited as a movement that is bubbling underground and gaining great momentum. It is our prayer and desire to serve this movement now while it is still “underground,” so that when it rises to the surface for the entire world to see, it will look like the Kingdom of Heaven. If you would like to join us in this work or simply ﬁnd out more about the team, please contact us. We would love to hear from you. If your local church or network is interested in knowing more about how the National Diversity Team can be of service to you, please feel free to contact us as well. Thank you and we pray God’s blessings upon you. Here to Serve, Thomas Wynn, Jr. The National Diversity Team
