Ethnic Ministry Gathering

Concordia University Chicago

Oak Park/River Forest Room

7400 Augusta St., River Forest, Illinois 60305

Lunch provided


We are gathering pastors, commissioned church workers, and lay leaders in person to once again hold discussion of the challenges and opportunities of ethnic and intercultural ministry.

Rev. Dr. Yared Halche, Rev. Dr. Leo Sanchez, and Rev. Dr. Roosevelt Gray have all graciously accepted our invitation to speak to us at this gathering.

This gathering will be a good opportunity to share stories, ideas, prayers, and support as we partner together in advancing His Kingdom. We have the privilege and joy of participating in Christ’s commission to make disciples of all nations. We have a lot to learn from each other and to gain from our prayerful partnership in the Gospel.

You are also asked to invite those you know who serve or assist in ethnic ministry in our district.

If you are interested in attending, register please below by September 8, 2021. If you have any questions, you may contact Rev. Dr. Tom Johnson at tom.johnson@nidlcms.org.

You will need a parking permit for the parking garage. All registrants will be emailed the permit as it gets closer to the event date.

Concordia University Chicago instituted an indoor mask mandate on August 12, 2021. The University’s decision is now further supported by a similar countywide mandate affecting the entirety of Cook County, Illinois. As such, the University’s mandate will remain in place at least as long as the Cook County order is active. Thank you in advance for taking personal responsibility to follow the face masking requirement, and remaining respectful of all members of our University community.
