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

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 are hosting a gathering that promotes real talk about Christian unity and multi-ethnic 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.

LDR Weekend is affectionately known as the “Labor Day Reunion”, a homecoming for everyone  commited to the faith-rooted liberation and empowerment of African American communities.
