Who we are

What We Do
We help leaders grow in multiethnic ministry awareness and create a culture of diversity within their church.
We are committed to intentionally living out the value of multiethnic diversity and racial equality. This is who we are and who we are becoming, rising up to who God has called us to be as Wesleyans.

“There is a growing gap between the gospel and our cultures. The Gospel Gap requires a Kingdom Force which is multigenerational, multiethnic and multieconomic, women and men, lay and clergy, everywhere to everywhere. We must intentionally mobilize each of these Kingdom Force groups.”
A learning cohort has been in the works (based on the article written by Dr. Anita Eastlack: “TWC… as it is in heaven”). It will give you practical tools on how to measure progress in the area of multiethnic diversity, as well as action steps for continued progress and evaluation among your team and church.
Each week starting July 20, we will be expanding the conversation on each of the prompts mentioned in the article Population (How is our church reaching increasing numbers of people from diverse ethnic and cultural populations?), Participation (How is our church regularly creating pathways, events and resources that demonstrate multicultural expressions and engagement?), Power (How is our church increasing the multiethnic diversity and racial equality in our leadership positions and structures of authority?), Purposeful narrative (How is our church including and celebrating stories of people from diverse ethnic backgrounds?), Practicing unity (How is our church standing with and advocating for people of every ethnicity?), and Public square (How is our church engaging in kingdom action to increase ethnic and racial equality in our community?)
Fall Cohort Book Studies
We, in the Multiethnic Ministries, are working ahead and preparing book studies for our pastors and leaders. It is our prayer that these studies help you grow, learn and encourage you in your journey to close the Gospel gap and mobilize the Kingdom Force in your community and in your church.
We have two book options for you. Join one or both.
“One Blood: Parting Words to the Church on Race“ written by John Perkins. Join the multiethnic pastors Carolyn O’Connor of Heritage Wesleyan Church in Illinois, and Aldean Pablo of SEND Church in Indiana to talk and learn about this book. Connect with them for SIX weeks to talk, learn and engage in open and authentic group discussions regarding diversity, unity, reconciliation, growing together as one, and “taking inventory of our progress”. These sessions will start on Tuesday, Sep 14 at 7 pm ET/6 pm CT/5 pm MT/4 pm PT and will be meeting for 75 minutes each week.
“Be the Bridge: Pursuing God’s Heart for Racial Reconciliation“ written by Latasha Morrison. With racial tensions as high within the church as outside the church, it is time for Christians to become the leaders in the conversation on racial reconciliation. Join to grow, listen, discuss and receive a theologically rich approach to crossing racial divides. More information about date, time and hosts are coming soon.
