Racial & Ethnic Ministries

The purpose of the Racial & Ethnic Ministries is to strengthen the local church through leadership training, small groups, worship, stewardship, and spiritual formation as they engage in developing disciple making systems inside the church walls as well as in the community which it resides.


African American Church Initiative

Transitioning Toward the Future requires us to address the challenges of emerging and diverse, urban and rural communities in the Texas Annual Conference. This strategy includes broader scopes than historical African American congregations. We recognize that the greatest concentration of African American congregations is in urban areas, but this process will work with every African American congregation that wishes to engage—current churches and churches into the future. This strategy initiative is designed to meet the transitions that have occurred in our communities’ challenges of today.
