Sponsored by The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) Southeastern District Coalition of Lutherans in Black Ministry


July 11-15, 2012


North Carolina A&T State University, Greensboro, N.C. Participants are gathering in the alumni center, the former home of Immanuel Lutheran College and Seminary, which closed in 1962 and prepared many black pastors for ministry.


The convocation aims to connect congregations in black ministry, strengthen the LCMS outreach to African-Americans, and provide participants a time to experience worship and spirituality through a service with Holy Communion, Bible study and hymn singing.
