Diversity in Missions

Breakout Session
Faith Hall 301 C/F

Mission trips are an amazing opportunity for both the teams going and the people served. However, often times the teams are not reflective of the sending groups local area demographics. This puts the whole body of Christ at a disadvantage, as the body is strongest when it has all its parts functioning together. How can we increase matriculation of minority groups on trips and thereby increase our effectiveness both back home and abroad?


To identify the need for more minority groups on mission trips
To recognize how blind spots can often limit a team's full potential
To give tangible tactics that can be used to increase minority matriculation on mission trips
To encourage an environment that fosters minority leadership for future trips
