Black Church Leadership and Family Conference

LifeWay’s 27th annual Black Church Leadership and Family Conference (BCLFC) is being held online this year July 20-24 and will be available to watch for free through LifeWay Digital Pass.

Each day of the conference will follow a schedule of morning exposition in Scripture, a customizable track of teaching sessions and an evening message and time of worship. Because the conference takes place online, attendees can tune in each day for the entire span of content or can pop in and out of sessions as their schedule allows.

Attendees can select from more than 100 conference sessions that include training from leading experts throughout the Black church community, as well as organizations like LifeWay Christian Resources, North American Mission Board, International Mission Board, Woman’s Missionary Union, and GuideStone Financial Services.

Ben Mandrell, LifeWay president and CEO, will present a message Tuesday (July 21) evening on how Christians are challenged to love their unchurched neighbors. Other evening presenters include:

  • Darron Edwards, pastor of United Believers Community Church (Kansas City, Missouri)
  • Adron Robinson, pastor of Hillcrest Baptist Church (Chicago, Illinois)
  • Fred Luter, pastor of Franklin Avenue Baptist Church (New Orleans, Louisiana)
  • Breonus Mitchell, pastor of Mount Gilead Missionary Baptist Church (Nashville, Tennessee)
