The Objective of the New Multicultural Church Development Committee of the North Georgia UMC:
"The North Georgia conference of the United Methodist Church is positioned in the ideal space in time to witness the prayer of JESUS come to pass (John 17:21). As we observe people from every nation and from all cultures and subcultures move into our parishes, we must be ready to love them, just as JESUS prayed,
"I have given them the glory you gave me, the glorious unity of being one, as we are -- I in them and you in me, all being perfected into one-so that the world will know you sent me and will understand that you love them as much as you love me." (John 17:22-24 TLE)"
