Diversity Is Not Enough

Simply being in proximity to people of different racial backgrounds doesn’t eliminate racism or automatically produce positive outcomes.

That’s why Barna has partnered with Dr. Michael Emerson and the Racial Justice and Unity Center, through a study funded by the Lilly Endowment, on this comprehensive study of race and the Church: Beyond Diversity.

What do Christians and U.S. adults believe about racism and related justice issues?

What will it take to move beyond statistical diversity towards flourishing community?

This report prompts readers to ask: 

  • How am I stewarding the trust people have placed in me when it comes to leading on issues of race? 
  • What incorrect attitudes remain unchallenged and unchanged in my personal life and / or church that hinder biblical justice and unity? 
  • Has my congregation experienced pain around racial issues (both within and outside of the church) that I have remained unaware or dismissive of?
  • How is the Church’s reputation affected by my own ability (or inability) to responsibly address and work towards racial justice?
  • How can the Church contribute to creating systems and structure that encourage racial justice rather than uphold inequity?

The data presented in this report help to shed light on some of these questions, offering leaders first steps and actionable insights to help them begin the necessary journey of guiding their community more intentionally toward a future of justice and unity.
