Multicultural Ministries

 


 

 

The cutting edge of growth across the USA/Canada Region has been within immigrant and ethnic people groups, states the USA/Canada Regional Office. Nazarene churches throughout the nation, especially in urban contexts, are being confronted with the complexities of ministry to these groups.

 

 

 

 

Multicultural Ministries works with our different ethnic groups within the church to train leaders and develop strategies for making Christlike disciples.

REFLECTION - "NEW HEIGHTS" BLACK MINISTRIES FACILITATOR, REV. CHARLES TILLMAN, SR.

Deut. 1: 11 - May the Lord God of your fathers make you a thousand times more numerous than you are, and bless you as He has promised you! (NKJV)

You can’t plant an Oak tree, a pine or a whispering willow tree in a small pot and expect that tree to grow to its fullest. In order for that tree to maximize its potential, it must be planted in an environment where it has room to grow and flourish. I believe there are times that God causes a sense of divine frustration in his own so that we might be prompted to plant our roots in a bigger pot, a larger field more conducive to growth.

Someone said, “You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.” Take a minute and let that soak in! James Whittaker, the first American to reach the top of Mount Everest on May 1, 1963, said, “Man is at his best when reaching for something beyond his grasp.” You’ve got to lose sight of the shore – you’ve got to reach for something seemingly beyond your grasp if you want to reach NEW HEIGHTS.      To read more click here.     

ETHNIC FACILITATOR REFLECTION

 

Give up Judgment, Add Grace

Errol Carrim, Life and Leadership Development Coach

Believe it or not the Lenten season is upon us once again. It’s that time when we start thinking about what we are either going to give up or add to our lives for the next 40 days. For many, this is a time of reflection and making adjustments to their lives.

In thinking about the Lenten season two words came to mind: grace and judgment. These two words are central to this season. Because amazing grace was shown to us through the suffering and death of God’s Son Jesus, we will and can stand in the Day of Judgment and not be condemned for our sins.  To read more click here.
