A special thank you goes to Garcia Photograhpers for capturing the worship at UnityOne.
UnityOne celebrated its 5th year at our annual Multicultural Worship Concert Experience in November.
Thanks to you we were able to raise additional funds for the next Multicultural Worship Experience as well as our business mentoring program, Asher Effect. We did this by uniting as one body through worship in song. We worshipped together with songs in Indonesian, Spanish, English, Korean, Sotho, Arabic, & Russian. Prophetic artist, Ricardo Colon, also joined us for our 5th year and took the whole event to another level!
The next UnityOne worship event will be announced shortly. Connect with us on social media for information on UnityOne events or subscribe to our mailing list to stay updated on our future projects. We hope to see you at our other events coming up in 2015, such as the Race In A Safe Place diversity discussion and launch of other programs focused on multiethnic ministry through worship.
We look forward to seeing you at the next UnityOne!
Join with over 50 regional churches for a time of extravagant worship as one body with songs from around the world.

The family tree of Jesus included the most famous foreigner in the Bible: Ruth, the Moabite who, when her husband dies, does not return to her family but chooses to remain with her Israelite mother-in-law, Naomi. Claiming a family based on ties that are stronger than blood is what the gospel tells us to do. Jesus warns in Matthew 10:37 that “whoever loves his father or mother more than me is not fit to be my disciple.” Ironically, the Moabites, although hailing from the line of Lot, the nephew of Abraham, were enemies of the Israelites. With God working within us, enemies become kin. The gospel’s genetic code has reshaped the family circle and our ties of kinship include all those who have been saved by the blood of the risen Christ. Church diversity arises out of this genealogy of the spirit, where foreigners become our family. A widowed woman in the Old Testament was expected to return to her own family if her husband died without brothers for her to marry or sons to take care of her. Ruth doesn’t just surrender her ethnic heritage when she joins Naomi on her return to Bethlehem, she sacrifices her individual identity, linking herself to a woman with whom she shares no familial tie. Ruth’s oath is a brave promise to submit to the unknown. “Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live; your people will be my people, and your God will be my God.” Ruth surrenders to her mother-in-law’s foreign God and bends to His will. Ruth meets her mother-in-law’s kinsman Boaz, who puts her under his protection, gives her food to eat, and makes sure that she is safe among the other woman when gleaning his fields. Gleaning, or harvesting the leftovers, was a custom which provided food for those who were not otherwise provided for. In this remarkable multicultural congregation of the homeless poor and the landed rich, the rooted Israelite and the far-from-home Moabite, Ruth shows that the cries of the needy and the desolate are heard by God. Boaz knows that Ruth has remained with her mother-in-law, and he tells her, “May the Lord reward you for what you have done.” Well, between Boaz calling on God, and Naomi’s matrimonial angling, it’s a foregone conclusion that Ruth will eventually be the foreigner no longer. She and Boaz marry and have a son named Obed, whose grandson is David. The lineage of a king, from the womb of a foreign woman, planting the seeds that will reap strangers from all continents uniting in multiethnic worship and makes true the words of Paul: “In Christ there is no East or West.”
