Imago DEI - Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Latin for Image of God, Imago DEI sets the standard for our community to aspire to reflect the image of God in each interaction with a Christ-like spirit of respect for others as fellow image-bearers. Imago DEI provides resources, training and opportunities to learn to value our differences.
