The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod
Strong faith, fervent love: Revitalizing congregations
The 140th anniversary of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Black Ministry will be celebrated during a convocation July 12-16, 2017, in Birmingham, Ala.
The Black Ministry Family Convocation will gather under the theme “All For Jesus: Know Him — Confess Him — Serve Him.”
Black Ministry provides encouragement, assistance, advocacy and influence to LCMS districts, congregations and schools for synodwide engagement in ministry to people of African-American descent and other ethnic cultures.
The LCMS produced “The First Rosa” film to share the story of Rosa J. Young, the “Mother of Black Lutheranism in Central Alabama.” A complimentary DVD copy of the film was sent to each LCMS congregation.
