Dear Potential 2020 Virtual
Ministry Training Camp Attendees,
I pray you are well.
I'm inviting you to attend this very important virtual conference. I believe as the church continues to shift, we will see more opportunities for cross-racial/cross-cultural ministry. I am dedicated to equipping clergy and lay leaders for this vital ministry.
The conference is not only about strategically investing in leaders in cross-racial/cross-cultural ministry, it is about making a difference in the community. I am proud to announce our 2020 community partner, the Dallas Bethlehem Center, to whom we will be tithing 10% of all of this year's registration fees. The Dallas Bethlehem Center (DBC), is a ministry affiliated with the North Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church. You can see details about DBC below.

From the DBC website:
What is the Dallas Bethlehem Center?
The Dallas Bethlehem Center is a community impact organization that has a history and commitment of serving Dallas since 1946.
DBC hosts community wide events throughout the year while partnering with program providers to deliver high-impact offerings in key areas including cradle to career education and community connection. It is very choiceful about the programming it brings to the community and is focused on being a multi-faceted education pipeline as a means to help address generational poverty in South Dallas/Fair Park.
Its current location is near the symbolic intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X streets. It is a space where all generations within the community can spend time, connect amongst themselves, and learn about resources.
Older generations have many meaningful memories of DBC and now enjoy seeing their children volunteer, engage, and continue their philanthropy with the organization.
