Our church established a new campus two years ago in Burnsville, sixteen miles south of the downtown campus in Minneapolis. Most people probably thought of this as an expansion to the “suburbs.” But John Mayer of City Vision calls Burnsville an “Ethnoburb.” He describes it like this:
29% of the kids in the Burnsville School District are non-white. Two blocks from my house is a Hispanic supermarket. One mile from my house is a Somali Muslim Halal Market. My next-door neighbor is from Cambodia. Next to them is a family from Belize. My wife’s Indonesian. This is the new face of our city and our country
