Effective ministry happens at the intersection of scripture and the context in which we are placed. A vital role of church leadership is to clearly define reality. One of these realities for PSWC churches is the profound role issues of multiethnicity and multiculturalism play in our setting where dramatic demographic shifts are occurring. The PSWC offers several avenues to address these challenges through immersion experiences for veteran leaders as well as emerging ones. These experiences urge us into the new reality that is unfolding from the powerful work of the gospel among us.

Journey to Mosaic (J2M): A four day experiential bus trip from Northern California to Southern California that pairs people up with somebody of a different ethnic background. It unpacks portions of the African-American, Asian-American, and Hispanic-American stories in California through tours, films, and partner/large group discussions.

Currently, J2M as a four-day experience is on hold. The plan is to resume offering this trip in 2014. To express interest in the four-day J2M contact Nelly Bothi at 925.677.2140 or See one day trips below.

Upcoming 2013 Journey to Mosaic trips are:

During 2013, there will be two Local Mosaic Trips, one focused in Oakland and another focused in Los Angeles. Each experience is designed for local churches to explore their context and determine how God is leading them to develop ministries of Compassion, Mercy and Justice in their own area. Participants will:

  • Gather with other local Covenant or non Covenant churches
  • Begin the day with prayer and scripture reflection
  • Tour to pre selected sites to listen to peoples stories and descriptions of issues
  • Return from the locations to reflect, pray and debrief
