- Intercultural Leadership Consultation:
October 20, 2007
Greg Detwiler writes: The
Intercultural Leadership Consultation (ILC) is a sequel to the Multicultural
Leadership Consultation (MLC) which was held in Boston in 2002.
The ILC will be larger in size and scope, representing more people groups
and a wider geography (i.e., New England) than the original MLC.
It will also serve as a prelude to the national City Impact Roundtable
which will be hosted in Boston in April 2008. The specific purposes
of the 2007 Intercultural Leadership Consultation are:
1) To better
understand & articulate what God is doing in New England
via the perspective of ethnically diverse leadership and Intercultural*
Dialogue; 2) To foster Intercultural Kingdom Relationships
3) To foster Intercultural Learning
…all with the aim of strengthening and advancing the Kingdom of God
in our region and world.
*By intercultural we mean
relating to and developing meaningful relationships across racial and
cultural lines in the Body of Christ.
