An event of relevance and strategic importance for every church.

This training is intentionally designed for clergy and congregations serving in a cross-racial/cross-cultural (CRCC) ministry context. By increasing the level of intercultural competency, deepening the understanding of relationship dynamics, and being equipped with practical communication tools, clergy and congregations will become more intentional and effective in their ministry.

The Rev. Dr. Grace Pak, Director of Cross Racial/Cross Cultural (CRCC) Leadership at the General Commission on Religion and Race of The United Methodist Church will facilitate with the Twin Cities District Strategy Team.

Who should attend:

  • Newly-appointed clergy and leadership team serving in CRCC Ministry.
  • Clergy and leadership teams currently in CRCC ministry.
  • All congregations called to deeper and more effective CRCC ministry

​The expected outcomes to this workshop are as follows:

  1. Participants will reflect biblically and theologically why we are engaged in CRCC ministry creating the foundation for ministry in our diverse world.

  2. Participants will grow in their self-awareness, especially in terms of their racial/cultural realities and experiences.

  3. Participants will learn and understand concepts regarding effective CRCC interaction and communication, and will be able to apply these concepts to their own contexts.

  4. Participants will be equipped with a common language that will foster a deeper and greater sense of team-building and community.

  5. Participants will be able to strategize and plan in order to increase Intercultural competency for the building of God’s beloved community.
