Dr. Roberto Hodgson, Multicultural Ministries USA/Canada Director
Multicultural Ministries' passion is to encourage the development of strategy and initiative to reach the USA/Canada mission field through the visionary leadership of the ethnic facilitators and their strategy committees.
Members of the Multicultural Ministries strategy committees are church leaders committed to leading their ethnic groups in establishing the Kingdom of God in the hearts of people and their communities.
The Ethnic Leadership Development Initiative (ELDI) is a two year program for selected young leaders from different ethnic groups to receive coaching, training and mentoring for leadership in the USA/Canada region. Multicultural Ministries also provides specific seminars in church planting, evangelism and discipleship to equip ethnic leaders.
Multicultural Ministries sponsors regional and national conferences and seminars to assist the cultural groups in maintaining Nazarene theological and doctrinal identity and equipping them to proclaim and support the mission of the church “To make Christ-like Disciples in the Nations.” Calendar of Events
