Cultural Competency is defined as the willingness and ability to shift perspectives and change behavior, depending upon the cultural/racial context – and developing it requires a spiritual journey. The goal is to become more effective witnesses for the gospel of Jesus.
 
The June 14 workshop is designed with a mixture of activities – presentations, experiential activities, small group discussions, films/videos, and individual reflections. Registration fee of $85 per workshop includes resource materials and lunch. It qualifies for .75 Clergy CEUs.
