Ephesians chapter 2 informs us of the unity the Jesus has won for the Church, His body. So what’s keeping us apart? What habits, assumptions and disagreements are dividing us today? Churches and ministries in St. Louis host an annual gathering that promotes real talk about Christian unity and black leadership in today’s Church.

The Leadership Development Resource is part of a movement  for men and women, ministry leaders, volunteers, pastors and church families who desire to address core concerns in Black communities.  Conference content is designed and presented by African Americans. People of all ethnic backgrounds and denominations are welcome to attend.
