The Ethnic Ministries Summit is an annual three-day conference hosted in different cities around the US by a national organization, Ethnic America Network (EAN), working together with local Churches and ministries. The primary purpose of the Summit is to bring together Christians, primarily in the US and Canada, from majority, minority, immigrant, refugee, international, and other Churches, ministries, and fellowship groups, to share, learn, worship, and be practically mobilized in reaching majority and minority ethnic groups.

The Ethnic America Network is a catalytic coalition of Christian ministries and churches from across the USA and Canada. We are a coalition of ministries encouraging local churches to share Christ’s love with the growing ethnic diversity in our communities. EAN embraces the conviction that intentional, intercultural unity among God’s people is both a natural and expected outcome of salvation. We affirm that it should be normal for every Christ follower and church community to intentionally cross cultures toward each other as we all move toward Christ. We consider embracing intercultural unity as the norm. Out of this unity we cast vision and practically equip people to reach many ethnicities still unreached with our message and ways to build community.

Safe Sitter Classes

Staying safe is not only in the name, it’s the foundation of the curriculum.  This workshop is designed to prepare students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.  Students learn how to prevent unsafe situations and what to do when faced with dangers such as power failures or weather emergencies.  The instructor-led class is filled with fun games and role-playing exercises.  Students even get to use manikins to practice rescue skills like choking rescue and CPR.

Classes are offered at Nations Ford Community Church on the following dates from 9am-4pm:

October 7, 2017
January 13, 2018
April 7, 2018
July 14, 2018
