Check-in begins




Dr. Eric Mason
Black Dignity What is Urban Apologetics?

This topic will introduce the pressing need to recover the biblical concept of dignity for Blacks. We will also uncover why people are walking away from the church, seeking to find their identity outside of Christianity. Believing the lies Black Religious Identity groups are telling them.


Dr. Sarita Lyons
Black Women and the Appeal of the Black Conscious Community and Feminism
Contending that the Black conscious community and the feminism are both “lifeless lifeboats” that cannot rescue Black women. Dr. Lyons charts a biblical path for Black women navigating questions about Christianity and biblical femininity.


Zion McGregor
Why the Black Church Must be Relevant
Explaining the crisis found in Black churches that struggle to transition to the new missiological landscape, and how this affects the younger generations that have grown up in churches. Rev. McGregor will help the Black church to chart a new path toward answering the urgent questions of this generation.




Q&A Panel

Blake Wilson
Knowing your Bible
Covering the need to know your Bible, offering Pastoral counsel on how to know a fake by knowing the real thing. Knowing the Bible and having intimacy with the Most High are irreplaceable tools for engaging apologetically.
