The 2016 African American Fellowship and Evangelism Conference was held from June 27-July 1 at Friendship Baptist Church in The Colony.
“I saw the African American Fellowship Conference as a great success but also the beginning of our focus to bring unity and strength to the ministry of the nearly 900 churches which comprise the African American Fellowship,” said African American Fellowship of Texas President Dr. Ponce Brown. “The conference was unique in that we began with a prayer vigil on the opening night. We had an awesome time in the very presence of the Lord. The challenges of life in this world were answered as we were encouraged with the hope given in the ministry of the word of God.”
“The impact of the conference was great in that its influence could be measured and felt on many levels,” Brown continued. “It certainly served to focus us for the many challenges which we face presently with the many tragic events taking place in our country and around the world. We are encouraged to know and to embrace the fact that 2 Chronicles 7:14 is true: If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
