Black history month is a time to recap, reflect, and recite the vast contributions of Black and Brown men and women to our great American society. From the names of Fredrick Douglass, Richard Allen, and Booker T. Washington to Mary McLeod Bethune, Maya Angelou, and newly elected Kamala Harris, we celebrate the indelible effect these men and women have had on America today. Read More



Mission and Vision 

Nazarene churches throughout the USA/Canada are growing in diversity! Multicultural Ministries exists to support districts, pastors, local churches, and leaders in the task of making Christlike disciples among all ethnic groups in the United States and Canada.

Find an Ethnic-based Ministry

Immigrant and ethnic people groups are on the cutting edge of growth in Nazarene churches across the USA/Canada Region. Urban churches are especially impacted by the challenge of ministering to these groups. In an effort to meet this challenge, Multicultural Ministries works to train leaders and develop strategies for making Christlike disciples among various cultures. These leaders are assembled into Strategic Readiness Teams, each guided by an Ethnic Facilitator.
