Mennonite Mission Network is committed to supporting African American leaders through mission outreach that connects people to Christ and each other, as well as training and resources that foster equal opportunities and shared learning. Our goal is that these experiences model the body of Christ — infused by love, peace, healing, and salvation — making our witness available to the world.
Participants will take part in two sessions:
- MW Sisterhood Masterclass – The Masterclass is designed to lead women through conversations about building bridges across racial, cultural, and socio-economic divides. It encourages women to lead in their churches and communities to seek and build relationships with people very different from themselves.
- MW Sister Care seminar – Sister Care seminars provide women with tools for ongoing personal healing, recognizing and celebrating God's grace in their lives, and responding more confidently and effectively to the needs of others in their families, congregations and communities.
We hope to see you there!
