Ready to take the next step?

Contact Rev. April Casperson, Director of Diversity and Inclusion to talk through how our West Ohio Cultural Coaches can work with you and your church to move into more vital, effective, healthy leadership and ministry. Options include hosting a conversation about culture, diversity, Christian identity and outreach and using the IDI as an individual, leadership team or church group.

The West Ohio Cultural Coaches were funded out of a grant generously awarded by the General Commission on Religion and Race (GCORR), a ministry of the United Methodist Church. We give special thanks to Mary-Frances Winters and The Winters Group, LLC for working with the West Ohio Cultural Coaches.  

For additional resources, we encourage you to visit GCORR Resources website and the Facing the Future website. The next Facing the Future event will take place in fall 2020.
