We envision all churches to become healthy, vital, relevant, and fruitful ministries led by strong and competent leaders.
We envision the Black church to be equipped, prepared and unapologetic in building the beloved kingdom of God on earth and resisting any form of evil and injustice anywhere.
To transform and sustain vital Black congregations and Black Pastors including those in cross racial appointments
Making disciples of Jesus Christ to serve and heal a hurting world.
We offer cutting-edge resources and transformational learning models to empower conferences, congregations, and communities to share gifts of vitality to enhance church growth and development.
We develop our lay and clergy leaders with new skills; engage in ministry with the poor; to decrease mass incarceration; to effectively identify, support and mentor young adult Black clergy.
I look forward to partnering with you to offer transformative ministry that will engage and meet the needs of churches, annual conferences and our collaborative partners to bring about more relevant, sustainable and vibrant faith communities.
This is a HUGE assignment and I invite your prayers, input and service as we together strengthen black churches in the UMC.
