Dr. Kenneth Hill was named Director of Multicultural Ministries for the Church of God (Cleveland, Tennessee). The aim of Multicultural Ministries is to ensure fellowship and evangelism and to create intentional relationships that are purposeful among the groups.
After the Church of God’s 1964 resolution supporting Civil Rights and its 1966 statement urging total integration of all congregations and ministries, a Black Ministries office was created to network with church leaders, monitor progress, promote evangelism, and facilitate regional fellowship activities. Last week, the church took another step that embarks on a multiracial paradigm with significant breakthroughs that involves the merger of the Black Ministries department with Multicultural Ministries.
Dr. Kenneth Hill, the former Director of Black Ministries for the Church of God, was named the Director of Multicultural Ministries during the 75th International General Assembly, which concluded last week in Orlando, Florida.
From this position, Dr. Kenneth Hill will coordinate activities involving a broad range of diverse bodies throughout the country, including Haitians, Indonesians, Jamaicans, Filipinos, Indians and others of the denomination’s language and culture groups.
