CROSS culture




What is a
"Cross Culture?"

Cross Culture refers to a people unified by the blood of Jesus while still embracing the differences across cultures.

Specifically, a Cross Culture church intentionally develops the people, purpose, and practices required to maintain unity across racial and ethnic differences. (Ephesians 4:1-3)

To that end, the Cross Culture Collective exists to create an ecosystem of resources and relationships to fuel a movement of cross culture churches.


Cross Culture

We regularly host weekend workshops for church planting teams. These are immersive  experiences to give planting teams and church staff members an opportunity to experience a multiethnic church experience and look "behind the scenes".

These workshops, hosted by Radiant Church in North Charleston, SC, are built for a church plant core team or an entire church staff. We will have hands-on discussions to help you create multiethnic practices for: worship, preaching, staff culture, discipleship systems, kids' ministry, and more.

You and your team will walk away with tangible next steps to apply in your local church setting.

*Note: Lead Pastors must attend for other staff members to register.

A little bit about our Executive Director, Philip Pinckney.

Philip Pinckney Headshot

Philip planted Radiant Church in 2017 and serves as its Lead Pastor. Radiant is an intentionally diverse church in North Charleston. Through the years, Radiant has fought to maintain a high level of diversity across racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic difference. Along the way, Pastor Philip realized that although it is definitely a work of the Spirit, there are some very practical steps any churches can take to reflect the diversity of its city. The Cross Culture Collective is an attempt to share what we know and learn from others in the hopes of creating a movement of multiethnic church planting in America.
