Cultural Competency training is required before serving in on-going Kansas City Mission programs in order to provide a safe environment for all those we serve. Empowering and educational, this training will provide each participant with a heightened awareness about our neighbors and cross-cultural interactions. Those who need this training may be interested in serving on the bookmobile, at the food pantry, as a tutor, or in a classroom at one of our partner schools. Additionally, individuals who are interested in serving with our partner organizations should plan to take this training.
All classes will take place over Zoom from 9 am - 11 am.
Seating is limited and classes not meeting a minimum size may be rescheduled. Please be sure to carefully select an appropriate date.

Join Allies for Racial Justice for an inward look at how complicity with racism created and perpetuates the divide in our churches and communities. Representatives from several Christian denominations will discuss the historic role churches played in separating God’s people by “race", the role culture and politics play in maintaining the separation, and how God’s great command to truly love our neighbors as ourselves could set things right.
Everyone has questions that they may feel uncomfortable asking, especially when it comes to issues like race. Join our special guest speakers from The Hope Center to explore questions about race and community in the Bible, and learn how to apply it to our daily lives.
Learn from Rabbi Art Nemitoff from The Temple, Congregation B’nai Jehudah about what God's justice looks like in the Hebrew scriptures. We also hear how these truths are lived out today in the Jewish faith.
