We provide resources for networking, for developing workshops and trainings, and for developing intercultural leadership. You’ll find here resources created by this office to be used and/or adapted to meet your unique needs. Check the “Related Links” page for best practices from provinces, dioceses, and congregations throughout the Episcopal Church and the wider Christian community.
Communicating Across CulturesThese are designed for all those seeking to become better intercultural communicators. We explore the complexities of culture, defining and identifying the factors that influence cultural development, as well as the connection between culture and communication.
Intercultural Leadership Trainings
We are in the process of designing a training program to equip Christians for lay and ordained leadership roles in diverse communities. Workshops will build on the principles from “Communicating Across Cultures” training and will cover topics such as “parish as place,” “understanding the demographics of your community and congregation,” “models for intercultural integration,” and others.
