The Multiracial Congregations Project

The Multiracial Project defined multiracial congregations as those congregations in which no one racial group constitutes more than 80 percent of the total, and then studied multiracial congregations for insights and lessons on living together in diversity. Preliminary results indicate that Catholic churches tend to be diverse if the parish is multiracial. Protestant churches tend to be diverse if a congregation has intentionally pursued diversity. Multiracial churches are most likely to occur where the membership is already comfortable in mixed-race contexts, and participation in a mixed-race church leads people to have more multi-racial friendship circles.
