Lake Junaluska, NC – The 2012 Lake Junaluska Multicultural Conference November 29 – December 1 will explore the changing racial, ethnic and cultural demographics of our country that are moving towards a population that is majority racial-ethnic. In light of this fast-approaching demographic change, how do we create a church in which all people feel welcome? This conference will provide thought-provoking cultural competency training for clergy and laity, enhancing their ability to serve as leaders within diverse churches and changing communities.
Participants will experience this training through a mixture of plenary sessions, workshops, powerful and inspiring worship services and motivating speakers, all of which will empower the participants to embrace the principles learned at the conferences and put them into action in their local churches and communities, thereby "Creating a Church for All People."
Leadership includes Bishop Melvin Talbert (retired), Advocate for Justice and Equal Rights; Bishop Wanda Lee, Wisconsin Area; and Bill Cruse of Kaleidoscope Institute. Others will be announced.
Early registration ends September 30. Scholarships will be available soon. For more information and to register, visit: www.lakejunaluska.com/multicultural.
