Unity in diversity aligns with biblical vision of God’s kingdom because it comes not at the expense of diversity, but couched in diversity as we see in Revelation 7:9-10 (ESV): “After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!’”
On this page you’ll learn about our journey toward diversity and oneness – our perspective, our plan, our partner and more.
LBC | Capital has retained Jael K.D.L.V. Chambers and Cultured Enuf to conduct a diversity audit and provide their recommendation with respect to next steps to help us move from our reality toward the biblical vision of God’s kingdom (Revelation 7:9-10). The audit will include a series of focus groups and surveys from all our constituent groups – students, faculty, staff, Board of Trustees, Corporation members, alumni and friends of LBC | Capital across all our locations (Lancaster, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.). It will reveal strengths and weaknesses and inform the development of a plan to maximize strengths and improve weaknesses as we continually align our efforts to God’s kingdom vision.
For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body,
so it is with Christ.—1 Corinthians 12:12
Statements can share a vision, but statements must be followed by actions. In this Sept. 9, 2020 video, President Kiedis shares action steps taken, where we’ve been and where we want to go.
Presented here is the College’s positive diversity narrative now and projected into early 2021.
We extend profound thanks to our Diversity Council, a group that has been speaking into this process with invaluable guidance and counsel. Director of Student Care Cherese Carter offers a safe space in Lancaster for students to share, and site directors Dr. Tanya Solomon and Dr. A. Michael Black are available to students at our Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. locations respectively. Use the Contact Form below to submit your question or comment.
