The study aims to investigate the challenges in planting a multi-ethnic church in the mid-west. The reality is that the USA has become highly multiethnic so, the churches in the world, especially in America and more specifically in the religiously diverse Mid-West are multiethnic, so we have to do a dissertation that will discover the challenges. Many theses talk about the benefits but few of the challenges. However, the study of Christian missiology has begun to reflect in literature more than a century ago. It has the rich, dark history of academia. A root academia on missiology would be used to generate a body of literature for the study. The research entails the challenges and recognition problems in different institutions of the world. It is imperative in this study to collaborate the hindrance posed in the direction of its success.
The vast literature postulates the odd place of missiology in the theological academia. There are multiple views of defining the course of Missiology. A traditional approach, however, refrains the planting of the multi-ethnic church. The study would extract those obstacles and include it as a body of this research. The study would aim to look afresh into the problem of identifying the nature and characteristics of missiology and propose a viable understanding. The development of the discipline requires a comprehensive approach to understanding the concept of multi-ethnic church. A working understanding could lead to some adequate challenges faced by the multi-ethnic churches. The study would insinuate the ground realities imposed on such composition of a church. The confusion of developing the base for drastic changes to the church system would be supportive of the study. A theoretical model would be formulated identifying the core variables of the study. The variables would be discussed in detail with historical supportive data.
The methodology of the research would be substantial to ensure the significant challenges to multi-ethnic church. A detailed qualitative research analysis would be carried out to gather as much information as possible. The study will survey max 30 churches Pastors and church leaders, I will also include my own church who is multiethnic church. A study will conduct a formal self-administered interview. The responses would be documented properly. After establishing the literature, it would be easier to formulate a valid questionnaire for an interview. A steady approach would be adopted to organize all the responses collected from the representatives from the church. It is evident to ensure honest responses between the lobby of churches in the area. The concept of multi-ethnic may come as a surprise to some heads.
The results would be based on the responses collected from the heads of the churches and public. The study would devise structured findings based on literature and the surveys. The application of methodology would help the research understand the current take of churches on the idea. The aggregate data would be analyzed using different statistical tools. However, the theoretical aspect of findings would be based on the surveys might have significant contribution in the study. The analysis would constitute of two sections. The first one would be demographic, and the other is statistical. The findings would be led by some suggestions and recommendations on how to cope with the challenges. The composition of final chapters research would be based on the literature and methodology. Moreover, the findings would be associated with the literature in the discussion part of the research.
