Multi-Ethnic Ministry

Multi-Ethnic Ready Bench

The Multi-Cultural Ready Bench  is a team  of leaders from around our synod who have come together for the purpose of supporting and accompanying our ethnic specific ministries within the synod (Dacotah O'yate Luther Church, South Sudan Lutheran Community, The Way (formerly Native American Christian Ministry) and La Misión Luterana Evangélica del Corredor I-29).  This Ready Bench also attends to encouraging, resourcing and supporting new ministries that reach beyond racial, cultural and socio-economic barriers.
