Leading Towards Multicultural Ministry
Do you desire to see your church or ministry experience more diversity? Do you have a passion to reach people across the racial and cultural divides in our culture? What does it mean for followers of Jesus to practice reconciliation?
Rhythm Church and Touching Miami with Love are pleased to host a presentation and workshop led by Pastor Darryl Williamson on pursuing multicultural diversity in local churches and ministries.
This workshop costs $10 per person (before June 9) and you can REGISTER HERE. The cost increases to $15 per person at the door on June 10.
Anyone who is interested in these subjects is welcome to participate!
Darryl Williamson is the Lead Pastor at Living Faith Bible Fellowship in Tampa, FL, where he led the church’s transition from a primarily middle-aged African American membership to becoming multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-generational. Darryl and Living Faith started Arise City, a ministry focused on developing missionary leaders for the American and global urban context. Darryl has spoken at conferences in the US and West Africa on the relationship between the gospel and justice, biblical ethics, multi-cultural ministry, missions strategy, leadership development, and spiritual transformation.
This workshop will focus on two vital aspects in leading a mono-cultural church or ministry to becoming a multicultural fellowship. We will first consider how a vision is cast and communicated for a multicultural movement. Thought will be given as to how and why a multicultural focus should be central to the church or ministry’s overarching strategy and identity. We will then discuss implementation, specifically the importance of cross-cultural discipleship, developing leadership diversity, changing expectations around traditions, along with enduring doubt, opposition, and attrition.
