Relationships

The General Council and the Office of Ethnic Relations

            The Office of Ethnic Relations serves as a liaison between the national office and ethnic minority and immigrant ministers, churches, and Ethnic/Language Fellowship Groups in the United States.  Our mission statement purposes to redeem changing demographics for growing opportunities to reach the nations in our Nation.  We strive to accomplish this by working with our Fellowship Groups, serving as co-chair on the Commission on Ethnicity and working with key personnel to discover, develop and implement strategies that build relationship and partnerships among our diverse people groups.

 

 

The Language/Ethnic Fellowship Groups:

 

Section 1.  To the General Council and the Assemblies of God U.S. Missions

 

The  Fellowships, as an integral part of the General Council of the Assemblies of God, a nonprofit, religious corporation with headquarters in Springfield, Missouri, is subordinate and amenable to the said General Council as prescribed in its Constitution and Bylaws (see Bylaws, Article V, Section 6, paragraph a.). The Director of the Office of Ethnic Relations serves as liaison between the General Council and the Fellowship.

The Fellowship has a cooperative working relationship with the Assemblies of God U.S. Missions (AGUSM) in matters of mutual concern. The Intercultural Ministries director of U.S. Missions or one acting on his behalf shall serve in an advisory capacity.

 

Section 2.  To the District Councils of the Assemblies of God

 

            Ministers and Churches of the Fellowships shall conduct their ministries in relationship to and in cooperation with the appropriate geographic and language district councils. Since ministry in the United States is conducted primarily through the district councils, this working relationship is vital to the long-term success of the Fellowship’s ministry.

 

Section 3.  To Local Assemblies

 

The local assemblies may become an integral part of and subject to the Fellowships with privileges and responsibilities as prescribed in their specific Articles of Fellowship.
