There is a missing ingredient in the conversations taking place throughout the body of Christ concerning missional Christianity. The missing ingredient pertains to one of the deep and meaningful implications of what true missional Christianity looks like. Let me put it this way: if we say that we are Christians, and/or embrace one of the fivefold ministry anointings listed above as found in Ephesians 4:11, that must mean that we completely and fully embrace the multi-ethnic mandate of the Gospel. In other words, we cannot be satisfied with cultural homogeneity (racial, gender, social class, religious, for example) and simultaneously embrace a missional ethos and worldview.
