America's rapidly shifting demographics are shredding the underlying assumptions that shaped many of today's evangelical organizations. God is giving white evangelicals a once-in-a generation opportunity to release their iron grip on the tables of leadership in favor of a new, far more complex generation of leaders drawn from the myriad of cultures increasingly populating the United States. But as Saul gave David his armor to fight Goliath and it didn't fit, so white evangelicals are giving new leaders old tools and they're telling us it doesn't fit Are we open to pursue a pristine vision together with our brothers and sisters who once stood outside our organizations? Our choice will go far in determining the role of white evangelicals in a non-white America. Rev. Mark Marchak served as an urban missionary with Missions Door for 45 years, first as Team Leader in New York City and then as the mission's Director of City Ministry. He is the son of second-generation parents with roots in Russia and Slovakia. Mark graduated from Taylor University and Denver Seminary. Together with his wife, Karen, the Marchaks have lived in New York City for over 40 years during which they raised two children in the City's public school system. A wrestler and football player in college, Mark resumed a passion for painting after his retirement. He loves the Yankees and old 1930's monster movies. His prayer is that this book will alert leaders of predominantly white Christian organizations that a demographic tsunami is crashing over us and we must respond in God's timing.
