Kingdom Association of Convenant Pastors

To Our Pastors

The winter is past and we are coming out from the thaw. Spring is now here and it is time to energize and engage the church in life changing witness. To that end we are preparing for a great 10th Anniversary Kingdom Association Conference July 20th-22nd. Our theme is "Dreaming Big Dreams!" Our churches are ready to move forward with ideas and goals that will make a difference in the lives of people. Traditionalism has its place, while contemporary ideologies are relevant for this age, yet I believe God is birthing big dreams that are beyond the confines of tradition and out of the box for contemporary. We will explore these big dreams and I think they will resonate with each of you.

This year's conference celebrates the big dream KACP. We started this group of pastors and churches believing in God that a new season of faith was emerging. Over the years our churches and pastors have been strengthened and taught how to let God breathe new life into the ministry. We have grown in number and our churches are known for being trendsetting and cutting edge. Our understanding of faith is getting a wider reach and people are coming to Christ.

We want this year's conference to express a big idea. We are having a 10th year reception on Monday night and a golf tournament Monday afternoon. You can register for both of these on the registration form. Tuesday and Wednesday will be full days of study with powerful plenary sessions and awesome night worship. We are looking forward to a 300 voice choir composed of members from our churches. I will preach on Tuesday night and Dr. Gina Stewart will bless us on Wednesday night. We have classes for pastors, associates, leaders, worship arts, and pastors’ wives. It will be a time of learning and sharing. Each day we will host "Tribal Chats" for each church. The church and their delegation will meet to discuss the topic shared and how it can impact the ministry. This is new, but will be provocative.

I hope you and your church will be in Baltimore for this special event. People will be coming from all over and I want everyone to see just how strong we are. Register your church as a block early so we can plan for those coming. The flier and registration forms are attached so you can sign up for the event now. Join us on social media to encourage others to be a part of this great experience.

Let me now change the topic to the awesome realities we are living. Once again shots have rung out from the guns of law enforcement and an African-American male lay dead on the ground. We have all seen the violent video that ends with Mr. Walter Scott of South Carolina falling to the ground that would soon become his place of death. We have marched and protested such actions, but now it is time to demand accountability. We must demand that law enforcement and governments that employ them be held to a new level of responsibility. We must demand that new processes and procedures become the antibiotic shot into an infected culture. We can demand this and we must. These incidences are not a new occurrence. What is new is the publicity and attention they have attracted. The new media is bringing into our living rooms and bedrooms the awful secret America has tried to keep hidden. Racism, classism, and culturalism are interlocking oppressions that fuel the violence we witness.

Let us sound the alarm from both pulpit and pew. Let us lift our head and our voice and hold America accountable. Our children are watching and waiting. They are watching our response and waiting for a better world. God has given us the power to make both happen.

Thank you,
Bishop Walter S. Thomas, Sr.
& the Executive Council Members
