Multicultural Ministries News and Upcoming Events
A Diverse Church
Within the United States and Canada, there is enormous diversity. That diversity is reflected in the Church of the Nazarene. We seek to display the strength that comes from unity across different cultures. Multicultural Ministries is dedicated to resourcing the different cultures that exist within the Church of the Nazarene in the United States and Canada.
Multicultural Ministries works with our different ethnic groups within the church to train leaders and develop strategies for making Christlike disciples. We also seek to connect people with active ethnic ministries and help them to establish other active ministries in the US and Canada. There are currently 18 active multicultural ministries active in the US and Canada. They vary widely in size and scope, but they all share a thirst to share the good news of Jesus Christ in their contexts. We have collected contact information for all of our various ministries, as well as informational pages for our most active multicultural groups.
If you would like to be involved in a specific multicultural ministry, the best method is to contact the director of that ministry. You can read information on all of our individual ministries by visiting our Multicultural Leadership page.
You can download How to Sponsor and Nurture an Ethnic Church Without Losing Your Mind. Originally published in physical form in 2010 by Oliver R. Phillips and Fletcher L. Tink, the entire book is available in PDF format here.
If you need additional information, we are pleased to help you find the answers you need. If you are interested in resources for a multicultural congregation, connecting with an existing ministry, or even starting a new multicultural ministry, you can contact the Multicultural Ministries office by clicking here.
