The General Board of Global Ministries is offering two workshops this fall which may be of interest to you…

Explore how multicultural  ministry can take your church community to the next level. Learn to appreciate how diverse gifts can strengthen the Body of Christ and how Christians can become local agents for reconciliation and community development.

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, multi-class ministry and desire for it to grow deeper, this experience is for you!

WHEN:  Saturday, October 26, 2013, 12:30 pm to Monday, October 28, 4:00 pm
