Racial and Ethnic Ministries

In recognition and celebration of the increasing diversity of the world, Global Ministries administers four of The United Methodist Church's six ethnic/language ministry plans, also known as the U.S. "national plans." These four ministries serve Asian American, Hispanic/Latino, Korean and Pacific Islander communities in the United States. The national plans strive for unity within diversity. They aim to expand the ministry of The United Methodist Church in a way that does not compromise the ethnic and cultural context of each of the communities they serve.
