The Board of Advocacy oversees the ministries related to the divisions of the Status and Role of Women (COSROW), Disability Concerns, Religion and Race, Christian Unity and Interreligious Concerns, Strengthening of the Black Church, Hispanic ministries, Native American Ministries, and Asian Ministries. The board’s core mission is to work alongside, and to assist with resources and programs for churches as they minister with and to ethnic constituencies, and keeps the vision of ethnic local concerns before the annual conference.  (See ¶632, The 2012 Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church)  The Board of Advocacy is committed in doing its part, to help build up the kingdom.
