Resourcing the Church.
Create a denomination-wide culture of multiethnic ministry that is reflected in leadership at every-level, in discipleship and multiplication within our churches across every district and in outreach to every people group.
3 Ministry Priorities
- Celebrate, share and build on the multiethnic realities that currently exist within our denominational family.
- Coordinate commitment on ramps for leaders and pastors to make decisions that reflect their belief in the sound of theology and ecclesiology of multiethnic ministry
- Create an ongoing network, partnership and communication strategy to keep the movement on mission and sustainable.
“I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me.”
- CALL people to prayer
- CAST vision
- CONNECT catalytic leaders
- COACH pastors
- COLLABORATE with credible sources
- CREATE regional teams
“After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.” –Revelation 7:9a
“For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility.”
Renuevo has been our Wesleyan Hispanic Family Camp over the last 7 years that promotes discipleship through renewal, relationships and relaxation. However, it has grown to become a multiethnic bridge experience for primarily English speakers as well, and will be held this year at Southern Wesleyan University on June 22-23, 2018. This experience is for all ages and involves powerful worship, practical teaching, insightful workshops and plenty of fun games and activities. Check out our video which gives you a snapshot of what’s coming in June!
Multiethnic Ministries Staff
We are here to serve you!
Rev. Santes Beatty
Director of Multiethnic Ministries
Santes has a passion for seeing discipleship and multiplication happen for all people groups that cross cultural, ethnic, socioeconomic, gender and generational lines. He sees his role as helping our denomination by building teams that pursue unity, while facilitating connections and developing resources for our districts, churches and leaders. He is a native of Raeford, N.C. and did his undergraduate work at Guilford College in Greensboro, NC. Upon graduating he took on a role in the newly formed office of African American Affairs which later evolved into the department of Multicultural Education. Soon he found himself bi-vocational as youth pastor in a predominately black Baptist context and a predominately white Quaker institution. While pursuing his Masters in Ministry Leadership at Huntington University in Indiana he accepted a position at Kentwood Community Church in the greater Grand Rapids, Michigan area where he first became a part of The Wesleyan Church in 2010. There he served as a High School Pastor and member of the teaching team for four years. In 2014, he became the Director of Multiethnic Ministries within the Church Multiplication and Discipleship division at The Wesleyan Church World Headquarters. He and his family served in Indianapolis, Indiana for two years before returning to the greater Greensboro, N.C. where he now works remotely in the same role, but has also served at both Christ Wesleyan Church as a Ministry Coach and a new church plant, United City Greensboro, as the Teaching Pastor. Santes also serves in the North Carolina East District on the Executive Team as the Director of Multiethnic Ministries. He is a much sought after speaker, lecturer and trainer being certified in Cultural Intelligence and Unconscious Bias training and assessment as well as Colors Inventory. He is a coaching consultant for Mosaix Global Network and is the founder of Crossover Consulting. He and his wife Nicole have six children: Tesia, an angel in heaven, Josiah, Serenity, Sarah and their newest addition, Cami (their Golden Retriever).
Translation Specialist and Administrative Assistant
Josmar was born and raised in Maracay, Venezuela, and is a trained translator in Spanish, French and English. She has lived in Indiana with her husband, Darren, since 2011. She is passionate about serving God’s people and loves working in the multiethnic ministry because it gives her the opportunity to connect pastors and churches of various ethnic groups with the headquarters team and the work being done across the denomination. Being a bridge builder particularly as it relates to our Hispanic community and helping to develop relationships and resources in Spanish is a huge part of her work as our translation specialist. When she is not serving the Church she loves organizing, crafting, spending time with her husband and connecting with family back home in Venezuela. Darren and Josmar are expecting their first baby in April 2018.
