In a global society, The Foursquare Church is dedicated to including and representing every ethnicity. To that end, the Urban Multicultural Council encourages and facilitates training for multiethnic leaders.
The formation of ethnic councils and networks invites discovery of new and existing groups, removes barriers to effective ministry, recovery of areas of brokenness, and offers ministerial covering for leaders. Ted Vail, associate director of U.S. missions, serves as a liaison to the various councils and networks.
