Upcoming events

Coming in January 2022

Transformational Generosity: A Stewardship Initiative in the African American Church, Thursday evenings in January and February 2022

The Foundation is pleased to partner with Dr. Bill White and the WNCC Office of Equity and Justice to present this multi-week offering.

Rev. Melvin Amerson of Texas Methodist Foundation and WNCC leaders will lead the conversation. Rev. Amerson joined us several years ago for an in-person workshop offering on Stewardship in the African American Church, and was well-received by our colleagues. It will be a pleasure to welcome him back.
