Diversity Training for White Churches

by | Jul 7, 2021 | CFX Online, Leadership, Team Development

Martin Luther King, Jr., said that Sunday Morning Worship is the most segregated time in America. Many of us attend churches that are either all white or don’t reflect the diversity of the people that currently attend our churches. While we all claim to be open to diversity, sadly many churches are not intentional about attracting diversity. This presentation will provide action steps, suggestions and ideas on how to move your church towards looking like the Body of Christ.

This training is shared as content from our CFX 2020 Virtual Event. You can experience the same quality of content as this at CFX 2021.
