South Carolina Mini-Consultation

 The American church long characterized as the Anglo church meets on Sunday morning marginalizes other Americans. Many American churches congregants are of many ethnic backgrounds. They desire to reach out their communities.

 Prayer opened the meeting in seven languages. Pastors and leaders gathered together to discuss weaknesses their congregations had in reaching out. Many expressed the same weakness – how to reach out to another people group, different from themselves, not Anglo, and with a different language. The conversation is not much different found in majority culture (Anglo) churches.

The group decided they would like to gather more often; begin to understand each other and culture. They desire to be trained in better reaching their neighborhood and collaborate together.

Also being explored are resources for the Chinanteco people who attended.
