MEET OUR SCUAD
(Social, Cultural, Unity and Diversity Team)
Following the pattern of Acts 6, in the fall of 2020, the BCC leadership appointed the SCUAD to better address social, cultural, unity and diversity needs in our church.
WHY THE SCUAD?
Matthew 28: Jesus' commission and vision: “Go make disciples of all nations.” God built the Boston Church to be a large, loving and faithful church that was multiracial from its beginning in 1979.
John 17: Jesus prayed for us to be one. A diverse church does not always mean a unified church. To grow deeper in unity, the needs of our multicultural people must be addressed.
Greater unity. (Ephesians 4:3)
Greater love for one another. Helping every member regardless of culture, race, nationality, etc. feel respected and valued. (John 15:13, Romans 15:7)
Greater effectiveness in reaching all nations. (Matthew 5:13, Matthew 28:18)
Listen to and evaluate how the morals and values of American culture impact the Boston Church of Christ
Discern and address the racial, social, and cultural challenges within the Boston Church of Christ
Identify the important and urgent issues and how they can affect the social and cultural harmony within the Boston Church of Christ
Provide guidance in the form of education and training opportunities for local SCUADs and members in general
Equip local SCUADs with ideas and tools to help promote regional needs of unity, greater love, respect, value for one another, and compassion in order to effectively reach all nations.
