Board and staff take part in intercultural competency assessment and goal-setting

Board and staff take part in intercultural competency assessment and goal-setting

The NRVC board and staff recently met with Dr. Mylon Kirsky, founder and chief operating officer of Sidebar Education Consulting Group, for an Intercultural Development Inventory to assess the group’s level of intercultural competency.  Each person received a one-on-one consultation to provide key insights and create an intercultural development plan. This initiative is part of the NRVC's strategic plan goal to "advance the field of intercultural vocation ministry" and to "engage the culturally diverse young church."

      This process is funded partially through a Conrad N. Hilton Foundation grant to the NRVC to create sustainable solutions to challenges in the organizational structure and financial model needed to build for the future of NRVC.
