The 99th annual Hampton University Ministers’ Conference is here upon us, scheduled for June 2-7, 2013. This is the longest running and one of the most important gatherings of its kind for African American clergy. This year will mark the 8th annual reception for ABC participants, scheduled for Wednesday, June 5, at 9:30 PM in Conference Room A at the Embassy Suites at Hampton Roads Conference Center. The reception is sponsored by the American Baptist Home Mission Societies, American Baptist International Ministries and ABCUSA, and will provide an opportunity for networking, fellowship and conversation around American Baptist life.
In addition, there will be two special guests in attendance at this year’s reception: the Rev. Dr. Debora Jackson, new executive director of the Ministers Council, and Mr. Louis P. Barbarin, new executive director of MMBB Financial Services.
This year, in keeping with the overall conference theme, we will highlight the work of American Baptist International Ministries through focusing on 200 Years of Celebration of the Local Church and its Continuing Role in Global Ministry.
