The Office of Intercultural Ministries
The Office of Intercultural Ministries engages the church in its vision to become truly intercultural and practice cultural humility as we seek to better appreciate, reflect and engage in the communities around us. In collaboration with the Presbyterian Intercultural Network, this office inspires congregations and mid councils to develop strategies and coordinate efforts for intercultural ministries. By doing so, we assist the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in its efforts to become God's beloved community, building multiracial, multilingual and intercultural communities of faith and empowering congregations and mid councils to value, appreciate and celebrate all of God's children, from every race and culture.
Building multiracial, multilingual and multicultural communities of faith
Then people will come from east and west, from north and south, and will eat in the kingdom of God. (Luke 13:29)
