Ministries that reach specific ethnic groups or groups of immigrants are growing throughout The United Methodist Church. Some serve people who make up a minority of the population where they live; others serve groups who are widely represented in the community but underrepresented in the church. Find information and ideas to support ministry and mission with specific groups as well as inter-ethnic and intercultural ministry.
