Ethnic Ministries

Mission Statement

The Office of Ethnic Ministries is committed to organizing ways for the church as a whole to celebrate its ethnic diversity and recognize that diversity as a strength of the church. We are focused on bridging the gap between those in mainstream culture and those who feel marginalized from the church because of ethnic or cultural division.
