Your wisdom needed! A Call for Clergy and Laity in/has been in Cross Racial Cross Cultural Ministries

September 30, 2022
Elisa Anne is the new Community Engagement and Leadership Development intern from Iliff School of Theology. They are working on an exciting project for Cross-Racial and Cross-Cultural (CRCC) appointments in the conference. Together, we are working towards building a tool that assesses church and community readiness for CRCC appointments and a plan to better support the clergy, lay leaders and congregations that are called to them. For us to create a tool that appropriately represents the needs of our diverse conference, we want and need your help. We are asking those of you who 1. have been, or are currently in a CRCC appointment and/or 2. members of churches who have CRCC appointments currently, or in the past to please share your experience(s) with us. You are welcome to share as much or as little as you feel called. This time of sharing can take place over phone, zoom, email, or by filling out a survey anonymously. Please email Elisa at eanne@mtnskyumc.org to set up a meeting time. If you prefer your time of sharing to remain anonymous, we will ensure confidentiality. Thank you for your time and consideration in helping us as we move forward in this time of discernment, action, and care of our community.
