Dhati Lewis is the Lead Pastor at Blueprint Church, an Atlanta church plant that is unleashing healthy people to do ministry where life exists. Guest host Micah Fries interviews Dhati via Skype about mentoring, discipleship, cross-cultural ministry and more. In this clip, Dhati Lewis shares some thoughts on majority cultures in our churches.
