American Baptists are invited to register now for the New Baptist Covenant Summit to be held January 14 and 15, 2015, in Atlanta, Ga.
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.
