Multiethnic Leadership Cohorts

As a form of experiential learning for churches and leaders we’ve designed a variety of virtual and in person cohorts to equip participants with discipleship and multiplication principles from a multiethnic paradigm.  Each person joins a group of leaders from across North America to engage in iron sharpening iron.  Sign up for a 10-week leadership intensive or consider learning labs that range from 2 days in person to 3 weeks online.  These cohorts are created for individuals, staff teams and denominational leaders.  Some of our current cohorts include:


  • Multiethnic Conversations
  • Race and Faith
  • Homogenous Church Transitions
  • Multiethnic Next Gen Ministries
  • Planting Multiethnic
  • Multiethnic Worship
  • Multiethnic Women
  • Hispanic Leadership
  • Black and African American Leadership
  • Asian Leadership

Josmar Trent

Translation Specialist and Administrative Assistant

Josmar was born and raised in Maracay, Venezuela, and is a trained translator in Spanish, French, and English who has lived in Indiana with her husband Darren since 2011.

She is passionate about serving God’s people and loves working in the multi-ethnic ministry because it gives her the opportunity to connect pastors and churches of various ethnic groups with our team at headquarters 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.

Celebrating every time a disciple makes a disciple and a church multiples itself, until The Wesleyan Church has a transforming presence in every zipcode.
