Our theme, Envisioning the future exceptionally through God’s call for Social Justice “Injustice of Any Kind Disturbs Us”, speaks to our call to affect change spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, and socially. The Black Church served as a voice in the wilderness, crying out that equality and justice belonged to all persons, despite race, social status, or lived experience. The Bible teaches that God is a God of Justice. the Bible makes social justice a mandate of faith and a fundamental expression of Christian discipleship.
