The mission of the Multi-Ethnic Bridge is to serve as a bridge connecting people with different ethnic and cultural backgrounds in the church. Our goal is to help the church in serving our ethnically and culturally diversifying congregation by providing relevant information and insights.

We strive to assist multi-ethnic attenders in settling down in our church and facilitate their participation and engagement in church ministries and programs.

We hope to provide the congregation with opportunities to experience and appreciate cultural diversities and enrichment and to enhance an evangelistic impact on ethnic communities in Northern Virginia through in-house events and outreach activities.

Guiding Principles

  • We love people for who they are. Luke 6:32
  • We assume good intent in all our communications. Colossians 4:6  We pursue servant-heartedness in spirit and action
  • We respect and consider ideas expressed by our participants Phil 2:3
  • We communicate the truth in love and with graciousness - Ephesians 4:15
  • We celebrate the ethnic backgrounds of all people at IBC.. Revelation 7:9
  • We employ our positive energy and appreciative inquiry approach of seeking to discover the best in the people of IBC (Philippians 4:8)
  • As integral part of the Mission and Outreach Council, we follow the guidance and direction of the Council.
  • We seek to be biased toward action without fear of failure using design thinking principles where we think biblically (Romans 12:2a)  
  • We seek to understand first before seeking to be understood; quick to listen, slow to speak     James 1:19

A designated elder from the Mission and Outreach Council serves as an advisor to the group and a liaison with the Council. The Multi-Ethnic Bridge Committee elects a chair on a yearly basis. Committee members volunteer to serve in program leadership roles

Meetings

The Multi-Ethnic Bridge Committee meets every other month to plan, coordinate and network among committee members. We invite potential participants to our regular meetings and onboard them to actively participate in committee activities.

Activities

We host a quarterly multi-cultural oriented program that includes any of the following elements: bring a lunch to share, networking, panel discussion, mini-lectures and discussions.  The intended outcome of this initiative is to increase opportunities for people at IBC connect in informal setting. We also host a church-wide annual luncheon celebration to raise the awareness of multi-ethnic diversities among the congregation.
