We talk about what it looks like to create multiethnic spaces, specifically as it relates to churches and church planting, with Daniel Yang. Daniel is the Director of the Send Institute, has planted a church in Toronto, one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world, where he also recruited, assessed, and trained church planters through the Send Network and the Release Initiative.
