African-American Clergy Leadership Development: Claiming Our Humanity for Ministry ~ Our Gifts to God’s Glory


 Sponsored by the Office of African-American Ministries at Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center of the Southeastern Jurisdiction of The United Methodist Church 


This event is designed for African-American clergy and will provide tools for building successful ministries while developing greater self-awareness of soul, spirit, and mind. You will examine your strengths and challenges in order to create strategies and approaches to becoming a stronger leader and more spiritually attuned.


The Rev. Clarence Brown, former District Superintendent and the successful current Senior Minister of Annandale UMC in Annandale, Virginia will be the lead facilitator for this event.


The unique opportunities and challenges of being an African-American in ministry within The United Methodist Church will be our context.


If you are looking to:

·         Strengthen your ministry effectiveness

·         Create an action plan for successful ministry

·         Stay inspired and motivated in ministry

·         Create a supportive network of colleagues

·         Turn challenges into successes

·         Discover new ideas for powerful ministry

         … then this event is what you are looking for!



This experience will infuse each participant with courage to let God use his or her gifts more fully in the service of others. They will leave with a clear goal for improvement.
