Intercultural Development

What is Intercultural Development?

Intercultural Development leverages cultural competency and helps churches along in the reconciliation process. Intercultural Development is foundational to reconciliation. Love Mercy Do Justice walks alongside churches and communities as they embrace the mosaic of God’s Kingdom, learning how to engage in mutual exchange and share life with people across ethnicity and culture.

All of us can benefit from Intercultural Development. ID is particularly essential in churches that do not reflect the ethnic diversity of their community. Through using ID tools and resources, the church can be equipped to participate in the breaking down of dividing walls of hostility and misunderstanding as we work alongside those in our neighborhoods.

Intercultural Development is pursued in conjunction with other Ministry Development initiatives and Racial Righteousness offerings: the Invitation to Racial Righteousness Suite, Sankofa, Journey to Mosaic, the Love Mercy Do Justice Curriculum, and others.

Resources

We connect congregations and individuals with assessments and practical tools to move churches along in their intercultural comprehension and development. These tools help churches and individuals to identify intercultural goals and challenges, increase cultural self-understanding, and enable improved accomplishment of key intercultural goals.

Intercultural Development Inventory

The Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) is an excellent resource for individuals and congregations. It builds awareness, sensitivity, competency and contextually relevant feedback.
