Serving Cambodian Pastors: Every Tribe & Tongue & People & Nation | Emmanuel Gospel Center, 16 June 2011 [cached]
Rev. Dr. Gregg Detwiler, Multicultural Ministries Coordinator with EGC, co-teaches in English. Asked in a survey if they would prefer to take the course in English or Khmer, some students said they were more comfortable in one language and some in the other. This, according to Gregg, "reflects the reality of a community in transition.
To put flesh on this vision, Gregg Detwiler joined the EGC team.
Rev. Gregg Detwiler served as a church planting pastor in Boston for twelve years. He then served as the Missions-Diaspora Pastor at Mount Hope Christian Center in Burlington, where a ministry emerged to serve people from many nations. In 2001, he earned a Doctor of Ministry degree from Gordon-Conwell through CUME and started his multicultural training and consulting work with a dual missions appointment from EGC and the Southern New England District of the Assemblies of God.
In time, as Gregg pursued open doors of opportunity to serve ethnic communities in Greater Boston and to consult in multicultural ministry collaboration, four streams of service developed, the first being to support the CCAF.
1. Supporting CCAF
"My role in the fellowship is that of a supportive missionary who seeks to encourage and promote the indigenous development of the faith," Gregg explains.
For example, in February, Gregg conducted a workshop at Vision New England's Congress 2005 on "Multicultural Issues and Opportunities Facing the Church," co-led by Rev. Torli Krua, a Liberian church leader and pastor.
At times, Gregg is called upon to serve as a minister-at-large, responding in practical ways to needs and crises within ethnic Christian movements. He serves as a catalyst for collaborative strategic outreaches such as sponsoring an evangelistic drama outreach to the Indian community of Greater Boston. Gregg has worked to form racial and ethnic diversity teams at churches and for his denomination. He is also available for preaching, teaching, workshops, and organizational training for churches wanting to be more multicultural or more responsive to their multicultural neighbors.
3. Multicultural Leaders Council Development
On November 9, 2002, nearly 200 leaders from 16 people groups gathered at the Boston Missionary Baptist Church for an event called the Multicultural Leadership Consultation. Gregg, Doug and Judy Hall, and a diverse team worked for over nine months to plan the gathering.
Gregg explains, "In this unique context, Cambodian leaders can learn from Chinese leaders, Chinese leaders can learn from Haitian leaders, and Caucasian leaders can learn from them all-and vice versa!
In addition to his work with the Cambodian class, Gregg works closely with Doug and Judy Hall in teaching CUME core courses in inner-city ministry.
Rev. Dr. Gregg Detwiler embraces the new realities of our multicultural world and is working to find new ways to allow that diversity and cultural mix to influence our response to the Great Commission of Christ. Gregg says, "I am convinced that if churches in America effectively reach and partner with the nations at our doorstep, God will increase our effectiveness in reaching the nations of the world. To Gregg, this hope is not merely a theoretical idea or a worthy goal, it is a reality he enjoys every working day.

Click on the following links for the public newsletters from Gregg Detwiler, our partner who serves in Boston as the Director of Intercultural Ministries at Emmanuel Gospel Center:
Gregg is a missionary to and with immigrants, refugees, and internationals in Greater Boston and beyond. Gregg relates to many different ethnic groups including but not limited to Africans, Brazilians, Cambodians, and Indians.
Much of Gregg's work involves leadership development, building the capacity of indigenous Christian movements in and out of Greater Boston, and equipping the American church to know how to work with Diaspora Christian movements. Gregg's work takes many forms such as teaching a Cambodian Evangelism course or leading an Inner City Ministry course for Gordon Conwell Seminary. Courses such as these provide opportunities to relate to and nurture ministry development among many Diaspora people groups, including those reaching out to Buddhists, Hindus, and Jews. Gregg also consults with local churches, denominations, and Christian organizations in learning how to engage in Diaspora ministry and multicultural ministry.
