Quest Church hosts an annual discussion on the intersection between faith and race. This year our class will consider the challenges and possibilities of being a multicultural church. As a congregation we are blessed by the many faces, stories, and lives that encompass our diverse congregation. But we also recognize that we can and we must continue to grow if we are to be faithful to the calling God has placed upon us as a people. And so, we will endeavor to explore questions of race, ethnicity and identity in terms of what it means for us as followers of Christ and as people of God.

From February 17-March 17 our congregation will focus on the intersection of faith and race. In addition to our traditional times of worship we will host a class from 1:30-3pm which will include our youth and college students. Additionally, children will have sections devoted to exploring what race and ethnicity means in their walk with Christ. We have intentionally chosen to explore these questions as a Lenten journey of self-reflection, confession, and hope.

This blog is intended to allow members of Quest to follow the class and post comments or questions. We also invite non-Questers to join us while we walk along this lenten journey.
Quest Church, in Seattle, WA, has two volunteer intern positions available for college-aged young adults who desire to serve Jesus Christ through working with youth. The internship will include customized youth ministry training and hands-on ministry experience. The training will be comprised of a combination of spiritual formation, administrative training, and ministry philosophy formation. This is an excellent opportunity for college-aged young adults to explore a calling to ministry. Come be a part of what God is doing in this vibrant, multiethnic community. Contact the Youth Director, Coby Cagle, at coby@seattlequest.org if you have any questions. CLICK HERE to start the application.
