The gathering will commission and celebrate “Covenants of Action”—or projects in which at least two churches from varying Baptist traditions cooperate to address a pressing community need.
Summit speakers will include American Baptists Rev. Dr. Amy Butler, senior pastor of the historic Riverside Church in New York City and ABHMS board member; Rev. Luis Cortés Jr., president and CEO of Esperanza, the largest Hispanic faith-based Evangelical network in the United States; and Rev. Dr. Raphael Warnock, senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, spiritual home of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
