The Racial Ethnic Torch

Presbyterian Mission Agency. Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

Since 1990, Presbyterian Mission Agency has produced a periodical called The Racial Ethnic Torch. Published twice a year, summer and winter, the magazine is available as hard copy by mail or as a download on the website. Each online version includes a summary of the contents in the heading and back issues are available for several years. The Torch, which has the tagline Grow, Transform, Empower, Lead, and Develop, contains stories of multicultural ministries in ethnically diverse congregations as well as interviews with leaders in these groups. It provides information on new resources and upcoming events, including a section called “Save the Date.” Although The Racial Ethnic Torch is aimed at leaders and members of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), topics covered such as immigration issues and ministry models offer ideas and insights to readers from any faith tradition. Rev. Dr. Rhashell D. Hunter, Director of Racial Ethnic and Women’s Ministries/Presbyterian Women, is the Publisher.
