At the Fuller Youth Institute, we see diversity as a gift.

When we talk about all the layers of diversity with which we have been gifted, our temptation is to lean into paralyzing cynicism or simplistic answers. We choose neither. This work cannot be done by one person, one organization, or one church. Discover tools to help your congregation grow in partnership and diversity.
