Many countries are now extremely multi-ethnic. People from numerous overseas countries have made their homes in other countries, but they often have very little contact with Christians, and minimal understanding of the gospel. This book is about helping Christians and churches to understand the WHY, WHAT, HOW and WHEN of vibrant cross-cultural ministries, and to get involved."Changing Lanes, Crossing Cultures. Equipping Christians and churches for ministry in a culturally diverse society" is a very practical guide to cross-cultural ministry. Its three authors, Choon-Hwa Lim, Andrew Schachtel and Mike Wilson are all cross-cultural practitioners in Australia, with many years of experience between them. Although the book is written from an Australian background, the authors believe that much of it is applicable in a wide range of countries and situations.Why "Changing Lanes"?

Shortlisted for the 2017 Australian Christian Book of the Year Award
5 stars By 2017 Australian Christian Book of the Year Judges, Aug 20 2018
This well organised handbook challenges churches to reach out beyond their own culture. It is written by people with experience in cross cultural ministry in Australia and overseas.  The six modules can be used by individuals or in small groups and provide clear steps for making the cross-over from an ethnically monocultural church to a warm and welcoming multicultural church. It is time for local churches in Australia to share in the exciting growth of the global church.
