Partnership with the Ministers Conference of Winston-Salem

Published: November 8, 2012

The Ministers Conference of Winston-Salem & Vicinity is developing Seminarian Preaching Day with the Wake Forest University School of Divinity.  They have requested that a student preach every first Tuesday of the month and to “come in their own way” to share their gift of preaching.

The Ministers Conference of Winston-Salem & Vicinity has a history of 50 plus years of advocacy in the community to build a strong and united voice of peace. The Conference has played an integral role in leadership during the Civil Rights struggle, desegregation of the police and fire departments in Forsyth County, and continues their leadership efforts today. In the Conference, ministers take the opportunity to ensure that right and just actions are applied to all persons in our community, regardless of race, creed, color, socio-economic status, faith or gender identity.

Their leadership efforts have proven substantial in effectively advocating for justice and equity for all the citizens in our community while fostering fellowship and preaching the word of God for the membership on a weekly basis. The Conference also strives to mentor and support seminarians and divinity school students as they prepare for a vocation in the ministry.

The Ministers Conference meets weekly on Tuesdays from 11:00am until 12:30pm at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Winston-Salem.
