Ministry in the multi-racial and multicultural context of North America calls for leaders who understand the culture of others as well as their own race and culture. These leaders will be conscious of the racialized reality of their context. They will practice ministry that is skillful in intercultural communication and attentive to cross-cultural, inter-denominational, and inter-faith understanding. This course is designed to develop and cultivate such cultural competence by focusing on listening and learning amid cultural and religious difference.
