Many multi-ethnic churches engage in monocultural ministry; that is, they worship together on Sunday, but they also sponsor ministries that target specific ethnic groups in their community.

Such a church might have a Chinese-language Bible study on Sunday afternoon, a Hispanic outreach on Tuesday evening, or a fellowship with local Samoans on. Urban ministry is a different monster than any other form of ministry.
