Readers of this blog may recall that John Piper wrote an article explaining the elders' desire to increase the diversity of Bethlehem's pastoral staff. "We intentionally take ethnicity into account when making choices about who we will call to the pastoral staff and eldership." The fuller purpose of the article is:

First, I want to inform the people of Bethlehem (and anyone else who cares to listen) how the staff and elders think about ethnic diversity in hiring pastoral staff and choosing elders. Second, I want to solicit the help of any friend of Bethlehem or Desiring God in helping us know about African-American, Asian, Latino, Native, or any other ethnic persons who might be a part of the pastoral staff at Bethlehem.
Again, the job description and application are online.
