Cross-Racial and Cross-Cultural Ministries

Cross-racial and cross-cultural appointments are made as a creative response to increasing racial and ethic diversity in the church and in its leadership. Cross-racial and cross-cultural appointments are appointments of clergypersons to congregations in which the majority of their constituencies are different from the clergyperson's own racial/ethnic and cultural background. (2012 Book of Discipline, 425.4)

Cross-racial and cross-cultural appointments celebrate the value of relationships, both in the pulpit and in the pew.
