Reaching ACROSS

Reaching Across: Reconciling under Christ for multicultural living & leading.

Pursuing racial reconciliation with justice in our personal relationships and congregational ministry structures.

Multiplying multicultural leaders for diverse leadership needs with Madison and related ministries locally and globally.

In the Reaching ACROSS part of fulfilling our Mission we begin “Reconciling” with one another. Madison believers seek to be developed as multi-culturally competent servant leaders who are called to ministry under Christ’s Lordship. Biblical workers are engaged in developing skills to actively fulfill his/her calling in God’s multicultural kingdom. They begin to find their place in the family. They want to be used by God. They begin to become “other focused”. They begin to recognize that they have spiritual gifts to contribute to the body. They enter a phase of being equipped for service to one another in a cross-cultural context. Our primary ministry for this stage is a Leadership Development Academy that will help fully equip us to live and lead in a multicultural context.

CORR, Congregations Organizing for Racial Reconciliation, composed of the Anti-Racism Teams of Madison Square, Coit Community and Church of the Servant, invite you to attend an anti-racism workshop. The 2.5-day experience is designed to present an analysis of racism that organizations will apply as they work to dismantle racism within their institutional structure.

This workshop gives us an analysis for understanding racism; important takeaways include:

  • The historical development of racism in the U.S.
  • The manifestations of racism – institutional, individual and cultural.
  • The destructive effect of racism on all of us.
  • The call to join the work of organizing to dismantle institutional racism.
