CROSS-RACIAL & CROSS-CULTURAL NEW STEP WORKSHOP
"A Diverse Church by Design" is a cross-racial and cross-cultural leadership program. The BWC is committed to multicultural ministry and successful Cross-Racial and Cross-Cultural appointment transitions. To that end, we’ve designed a workshop to meet those particular needs to be held on Sept. 9 from 7 to 8:45 p.m.
This Zoom orientation is designed to provide pastors and five key leaders with a multicultural ministry framework, valuable tools for building community, and an introduction to A Diverse Church by Design. Register.
This fall, the BWC will offer Diverse Church by Design, a cross-racial and cross-cultural (CRCC) leadership certificate program, created for local church teams of up to five people, including the pastor. Learn more.
