Conference Goals

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.
