MULTICULTURAL OUTREACH MINISTRIES
National Christian Multicultural Student Leaders Conference (NCMSLC)
The primary goal of the conference is to empower student leaders to embrace cultural diversity and sensitivity while motivating them to model inclusive leadership that brings together people who travel life's many roads. For the past 15 years, the conference has been a major source of encouragement and support for student leaders from Christian colleges. The NCMSLC also provides the opportunity for administrators and advisors to brainstorm and exchange ideas while receiving practical feedback from students. Moreover, it is a time for cultural and spiritual sharing and reflection.
The conference is founded upon the concept of unity-diversity illustrated in Romans 12:4-5: "Just as there are many parts of our bodies, so it is with Christ's body. We are all parts of it, as it takes every one of us to make it complete, for we each have different work to do. So we belong to each other and each needs all the other" (TLB).
One Voice Gospel Choir
The Malone University Gospel Choir, One Voice, under the direction of Emoni Satterwhite, is a 20-voice choir representing most majors and ethnicities across campus. One Voice performs at campus functions, community events, and in schools and churches across Ohio, and the United States.

Membership in this organization is open to all members of the Malone University community. Non-students may affiliate with this organization by meeting all the regular requirements for membership including a desire to serve the Lord through praise and worship through urban style music.
Brenda Stevens, director of Multicultural Services, founded One Voice, along with student director Giles Foster as the first Gospel Choir at Malone in 1999.
