“The Multicultural Church Award” is meant to be a “fun” approach to realizing some of the Multicultural and Ethnic Diversity Task Force goals by inviting congregations to compete for the designation as a multicultural church. The inspiration for the idea is the All-American Cities Award, where annually municipalities across the country vie for recognition by the National Civic League as a city that successfully addresses local issues.
Similarly, the MEDTF seeks to present the Multicultural Church Award to a FLGA District congregation that demonstrates a multicultural approach to mission and ministry in the following aspects in in-reach and outreach:
The award winner will receive a trophy, a $500 cash prize, mention in district-wide publications, and distinction as a model, inspiration, and resource to other congregations aspiring to be multicultural ministries. The winner will be announced at the pastors and educators conference this September.
