MARK DEYMAZ is the founding pastor and directional leader of the Mosaic Church, a multiethnic and economically diverse church with locations in Little Rock and Conway, Ark.
CONNECTION TO OUTREACH MAGAZINE: Mark is a contributing editor, whose column, “Ethnic Blends,” appears in each issue. Outreach magazine has partnered with Mark to launch the Multi-ethnic Church Conference in San Diego, CA in November 2010.
MARK SAYS “A healthy multiethnic church is not focused on racial reconciliation. Rather, it is focused on reconciling men and women to God through faith in Jesus Christ and on reconciling a local church to the principles and practices of first century churches in which men and women of diverse background walked, worked and worshipped God together as one for the sake of the Gospel.”
