We provide a ministry within which minority groups in the MBC congregation can find the cultural, ethnic and linguistic support, which allows them to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. 'Intercultural Connection' facilitates people desiring to connect with others of similar background and interests so that they may grow as a family of God. We also provide live interpretaion for Sunday services in Mandarin, Korean and Spanish for older family members or guests to make Lon’s message clear to them. This ministry provides intentional unity through our diversity to become disciples of Christ, so that all in MBC can serve as one team in making an impact on secular Washington.
Please come visit us at the main lobby ('Intercultural Connection' booth) after any of the MBC services at the Tysons Campus, or contact Sunny Bender (Ko, Soon Sun) at 703-770-8659, firstname.lastname@example.org.
As MBC stretches forth to make an impact on secular Washington with the message of Jesus Christ, MBC will create relationships, opportunities, ministries and resources that facilitate people of different languages, cultures, and ethnic groups to grow, connect, serve and share.
