The Leadership Development Resource

So then you are no longer strangers and aliens,
but you are
fellow citizens with the saints and members of

the household of God

LDRWEEKEND2016 from Ubertonic Films on Vimeo.


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; especially college and seminary students and those considering higher ed, who are looking to fellowship with like-minded believers or be connected to mentors in the faith.

LDR Weekend is a family reunion, a convening of like-minded students and ministry leaders, and a weekend long invitation into active commitments to faith-rooted anti-racist practices in Christian worship, theological education and church ministry. Many in attendance are drawn by a commitment to the faith-rooted empowerment of African American communities. Register now, early bird prices expire in July!
