The National Leadership Team of P2C-Students would like to take a moment to give an update on our progress on our agreed-upon publicized plan for addressing racism as a ministry. We committed that, over the next two years, in partnership with the Lenses Group, we will provide development experiences for our staff in the area of intercultural competence, through Lenses Reframed experiences and conversation groups.
In the past two months, we have conducted two Lenses Reframed offerings that consisted of four days of training and processing time. So far, 54 staff from P2C-Students have participated in these trainings, including 63% of our supervisors.
While our staff will continue to grow and learn, we celebrate the important opportunity that these training and development sessions, conducted by the Lenses Institute, have given our staff to process issues and experiences around racism, ethnicity and power. There are three additional Lenses Reframed offerings planned for the coming months so more P2C-Students staff can go through this training.
Please continue to pray for us as we seek to address racism as a ministry.
