Check back here for more announcements as the planning for the 2017 Conference for People of African Descent, Friends, and Advocates draws nearer.
We are excited to share these conference goals which were created in community with the conference planning team.
Overarching Goal: All conference participants will become equipped and empowered to engage in ministry within a racially-diverse, mutually-respectful community of faith in ways that honor the gifts, skills, experiences, and lives of people of African descent.
Goals for People of African Descent
- People of African descent will experience safe space and affirmation of who they are in MCC and in the world and
- Gain vital skills to thrive in the present-day context, both internal and external to MCC.
Goals for People of European Descent
- People of European descent will experience being within an African-American cultural context; and
- Gain vital skills to become effective advocates.
