I deeply believe that the future of churches in America will be more multiethnic—not merely to force it as a way to overcome racism or because it will be a reflection of heaven, but because America has a generation that views race differently and is populating cities by the thousands. They are looking for churches and leadership that will intentionally reflect their geographical and relational reality.
My good friend Bryan is speaking from a place of intentionality in this fable that addresses these issues. I believe he is forging a new path for a new frontier of ministry of which the church hasn’t come near to scratching the surface. When he speaks on this issue I listen! You should as well.
—Eric Mason, Founder and lead pastor of Epiphany Fellowship, Philadelphia, and president, Thriving Ministry
There are few opportunities today that are better to demonstrate the power of the gospel than for people of different races and classes to worship together. Right Color, Wrong Culture is an important call to this modern-day sign of the reality of God in our world.
—David Montague, President, Memphis Teacher Residency
From the time I moved to St Louis to plant The Journey, I had a great desire to see a church reflect our city ethnically as well as foreshadow heaven where every tongue and tribe will eternally worship. By God's grace He is fulfilling this desire. My big regret is not having access and coaching from Bryan Loritts and his groundbreaking book Right Color, Wrong Culture when we started. If you are a ministry leader you need to understand the difference between ethnicity and culture. Bryan helps us with an easy-to-read fable that exposes our misconceptions and empowers us to lead in our multiethnic world.
—Darrin Patrick, Lead Pastor of The Journey, St. Louis, vice president of Acts 29, chaplain to the St. Louis Cardinals, author, The Dude’s Guide to Manhood, Church Planter, and Replant.
Bryan strikes a chord for all church leaders to seriously consider in truly redefining what it means to be a New Testament church in the multi-ethnic, multi-cultural communities where we minister. If you desire to learn what it takes to transform your leadership and embrace your diverse community for the Gospel, this provocative story is for you.
—Brad Cole, Biola University Trustee & Chair of Elders, Bridges Community Church, Los Altos, CA
From the Back Cover
Looking for the right person to help move your church, business, or organization toward multiethnicity?
The neighborhood surrounding the Poplar Bible Church and Christian Academy is changing. Gary, the senior pastor, has convinced the church and schools leadership team of the need to be more intentional about becoming multiethnic. He has also convinced the team that becoming multiethnic means hiring the right person to lead these efforts. When Gary reaches out to an old friend, Peter, to lead them through the process of identifying the kind of leader Poplar will need to welcome their new neighbors, the longstanding traditions, values, and perspectives of the team are challenged.
In this timely fable, Bryan Loritts, lead pastor of Fellowship Memphis and president of The Kainos Movement, explores three cultural expressions that exist within every ethnic group. He shows why understanding these cultural expressions is important when looking for the right leader to move your organization toward multiethnicity.

Loritts brings the heat and is right on point as he tackles and ties together the aspects of ethnicity and culture within society at-large AND the church.
Thank you so much for this treatise. It provides a solid platform and fuel for my continued efforts to educate my local church concerning the importance of "properly" pursuing an inclusive, multi-ethnic church!
To God be the Glory!!
My one knock is that the book ended abruptly. But, I only say that because I wanted to continue the story - I wanted more! The story itself was interesting and filled with likable characters. Overall, excellent book - especially for someone seeking to see their church or organization reflect God's Kingdom (multi-ethnic).
