Baylor News – Congregations Struggle to Get — and Keep — Racially Diverse Members

Baylor University researchers recently completed a study that shows that for 9 out of 10 places of worship, at least 80% of the congregation is the same ethnicity (Anglo, Black, Hispanic, Asian). No matter how far society has come at diversifying the workforce or the community, the church lags behind.
