Training & Assessment
In depth training and assessments are provided for leaders, churches and districts in order to equip them in key areas of ministry as well as connect them with other multiethnic-minded practitioners who see this work as not just a diversity issue, but one of discipleship and multiplication. Our training helps to affirm, encourage, mobilize and equip multiethnic leaders for grass roots organizing and systemic change. Participants learn how to engage in mutual exchange and share life with people across ethnic and cultural lines that so easily divide us. Through tools and resources offered the church can be equipped to participate in breaking down walls of hostility and poor communication In addition to strategic training we also offer assessments to help leaders and organizations develop self awareness for church planting, staffing, licensing and ordination. Some of our current training and assessments we are offer are:
- Cultural Intelligence
- Unconscious Bias
- Racial Reconciliation
- Colors Inventory

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.
