The LMC Legacy Foundation in its most recent cycle awarded one grant. Dr. Brinton Rutherford, LMC, received a $24,000 award for “Influencing Behavioral Health and Wellness of LMC Leaders and Members with the IDI Psychometric Tool and Qualitative Wellness Assessment.” The project seeks to increase intercultural competence in LMC. Since 50% of LMC congregations are predominantly people of color, this is critical for mission. The project equips leaders and members to increase intercultural competence and, hence, increase overall wellness. The project will first address internal LMC policy questions. Second, the project will address resource development by the African-American Leadership Team to aid leaders and congregations to move out of “minimization” toward “adaptation” in the language of the Intercultural Development Inventory.
