Event Details

Join us as we delve deep into God’s heart for diversity, inclusivity and justice in our communities. Each of our unique gifts strengthen the Body of Christ, helping us become local agents for community transformation. Explore how multiethnic and multiclass ministry can take your church community deeper in becoming the hands and feet of Christ on earth. Whether you yearn to take the next step in reaching out to a community that is different from the people who sit in the pews on Sunday, or are already engaged in multicultural ministry and desire for it to grow, this event is right for you! This conference is experiential. Participants will join members of our diverse community in worship, dialog, shared learning, and fun. Plenaries and workshops are designed to meet you where you are and engage your questions as we explore best practices for inclusive ministry. This year's keynote speakers are Bishop John R. Schol (New Jersey Episcopal Area), Rev. Junius B. Dotson (General Secretary, Discipleship Ministries), and Rev. Olu Brown (Lead Pastor, Impact Church). You’ll learn how to: *Foster a racially diverse congregation with members across the income spectrum *Use worship that is diverse and welcoming to strengthen your community *Launch outreach programs that use local assets to address community concerns *Engage a base of partners that can support and sustain your ministries *Maintain your spiritual center through the swirl of ministry *And so much more! Because of the experiential nature of this event, attendance is limited. Please register individually so we have your names, contact info, and workshop preferences.
