Dr. Kimberly Berry selected to serve as a cultural coach for the Missouri Conf. of the United Methodist Church

Springfield, MO—The Missouri Annual Conference recently trained 12 clergy and laity as culture coaches who will be deployed in 2024 to walk alongside local churches interested in learning about multicultural leadership, cross-cultural connection and healing justice. Among those named as Missouri Conference culture coaches was Dr. Kimberly Berry.

The culture coaches were selected from over 30 applicants to help Missouri Conference leaders and congregations in intercultural appointments build skills in better cultural understanding. Coaches were trained in intercultural competency, implicit bias, multicultural worship, responding to racially fueled events and cross-culture listening.

The coach is in service to local church leaders and will walk alongside congregations in their journey toward better cultural understanding. The coach is also in service to the Missouri Conference’s mission, vision and values, particularly as it relates to its race and culture work.

Dr. Kimberly Berry is a member of the Pitts Chapel UMC.
