Embracing Multi-ethnicity in the Church

Do you believe churches should embrace multi-ethnicity in practical and meaningful ways? Are you convinced that this is God's heart for His Church? Are you stuck trying to contextualize and implement strategies in your church?

1Charleston Next was designed for you.

1Charleston Next is a workshop specifically designed for lead pastors and their staff teams. The goal of this workshop is to help church leaders begin to take the next step in embracing the multi-ethnic Gospel in their churches.

This is a collaborative learning workshop, so attendees are encouraged to bring their specific questions, observations and issues their church may be facing. Also because of the nature of this workshop space is very limited.

In order to attend this workshop, the Lead Pastor must be in attendance. Any registration that doesn't include the Lead Pastor as an attendee will be refunded. Once the Lead Pastor is registered, they may bring 4 other staff members at no additional cost. Each church is limited to 5 total attendees.

About the Workshop

Is this conference open to everyone?

No, this conference is for lead preaching pastors and their staff only. The registration cost is for the lead preaching pastor, they can bring up to 4 other staff members or volunteers at no additional charge.

Will there be plenary sessions and breakouts?

No. This is not a traditional conference, but a limited seating workshop where we can speak directly with attendees. We will be in conversation together for the entire workshop.

What is the multi-ethnic gospel?

Please note that we will not cover what the multi-ethnic Gospel is and why it is important. If you and your church are struggling with those topics, please visit to begin the learning journey. This is a mobilization workshop, not an education conference.

Who are the Speakers?

The 1Charleston team will be conducting the sessions. The 1Charleston Team will be sharing in great detail the struggles and successes of how we have led our various churches towards this issue. That's why this workshop has very limited seating, as to preserve privacy and the sensitive nature of some of the conversations. We are not experts, but we have our share of bumps and bruises that we hope you all can learn from. We also have powerful testimonies of how God has moved in our churches that we hope to encourage you with.

Why do the tickets cost more than your previous conferences?

This workshop was designed for staff teams. One "Ticket" covers up to 5 people. The cost per person is on par with our previous conferences. Also, this will intentionally be the most engaging event we've yet hosted. Our desire is that this is a time where we can speak with you directly and to your situation specifically. It would be impossible to do that with hundreds of people in the room. We are allowing only a handful of churches to participate (first come, first served) to create an environment where dialogue can happen. This unfortunately doesn't reduce much of our costs of providing materials, space, lunch, etc.

What if the Lead Preaching Pastor is unable to attend on the day of the conference?

As this conference is for Lead Pastors primarily, the other attendees will not be able to attend the conference without the lead preaching pastor in attendance. We will refund the registration for cancellations up to 30 Days before the event. Any cancellations after that can not be refunded unfortunately.
