WHO WE ARE

Founded and led by Executive Director Michael Sylvester, the Lenses Institute is a cultural fluency development platform designed to facilitate oneness in the Body of Christ.


Our Vision

We see a day when the ethnically and culturally diverse people of God are seeing, understanding, and acting in ways that display to the world that our God is one.


Our Mission

We exist to equip the people of God to fight for oneness by influencing the way Christian leaders see, understand, and act in our ethnically and culturally diverse world.
