Mobilizing & Organizing

Join us for this three-part series starting July 30! The latest installment of our Prophetic Imagination will explore the history, theory, and practice of organizing through a theological framework of resistance. We will be able to identify the practice of mythmaking, understand the present nature of history, and offer practical tools from lessons in mobilizing and organizing in context.

With conversations led by Milton Keys, Too Black, and Erreol Morgan with Alliance THRIVE coordinator Alexis Tardy, this is a series you won’t want to miss!

Decolonizing the Great Commission: 2024 Annual Gathering

Friday-Sunday, April 12-14, 2024
Myers Park Baptist Church
Charlotte, North Carolina

About our Theme: We will take a close look at another foundational principle of the Alliance: partnership in ministry. True partnership cannot be built when we hear Jesus’ call in Matthew 28 to go and make disciples with colonizing ears. Together, let’s discern how we can hear Jesus’ sending words with new ears for a new day as we partner in ministry.

Black History Month Teach-In

Tuesday, February 27

For Black History Month the Alliance of Baptists celebrated by offering a teach-in on the Long Black Freedom Struggle and what it means for these times in which we live. Led by our co-director, Reverend Elijah R. Zehyoue, Ph.D., we looked at Vincent Harding’s text “There Is A River”, as we examined the significance of Black history today, especially as more states restrict and suppress this important history.
