Being a valuable resource for today’s Church and community is part of the Northeastern Seminary mission. That’s why we host conferences and symposiums designed to meet the needs of the faith communityto respond to the challenges we face in ministry. Each event is constructed to stimulate thinking, prompt reflection, and incite transformation as we share in God’s mission.

The Past, Present, and Future of Black Christians in America

Taking its name and inspiration from the black preaching tradition in which the pastor and congregation joined together in the effective proclamation of the gospel, this conference will call together church folks, marketplace and nonprofit leaders, pastors, practitioners, artists, and activists from across generations to respond faithfully to the challenges and opportunities of the present moment in America. We seek to offer a prophetic witness to the church and the nation while remaining biblically-grounded in a holistic gospel that has the power to transform lives and communities.

Location: Roberts Wesleyan College, 2301 Westside Dr, Rochester, NY 14624
