African American Preaching Conference


BLACK PREACHING AT THE INTERSECTION OF THE ACADEMY & MINISTRY:
The Liberating Voice of Black Preaching in America


The Lord's message rang out from you… 1 Thessalonians 1:8

September 24-26, 2019 | Waco, Texas


Among many excellent conferences, Truett Seminary's African American Preaching Conference will emphasize uniquely the work and witness of ministry as it intersects with the academy. This theme will be reflected in the nationally noted proclaimers, plenary session speakers, and workshops rooted in the rich resources of Baylor University and Truett. Informed by the theological seminary, inspired by anointed preaching, enlivened by choral praise, and shaped by a steering committee of 30 African American leaders, this conference will present a singular emphasis. Marked by the 400th anniversary of slavery in North America, the theme will be "The Liberating Voice of the African-American Pulpit."
