Kingdom Association of Convenant Pastors

To Our Pastors

This has been a trying time for those of us who live in Baltimore. In fact, our problems have opened the wound that many have in other cities. It is the wound of feeling excluded from the fulfillment of the American dream and it is made clear to us each day in the way we are dealt with by the police. The problem in our city erupted over the death of a 25-year-old African American male. As if we had not seen this movie in theaters across the country, now it had come to our city to play out for all to see. One moment, a young man was standing on a corner healthy, and, after an encounter with the police, he was hospitalized with injuries from which he later died. The Medical Examiner ruled his death a homicide.

Last week, following his funeral, our city erupted in riot and chaos. Stores were looted and some were even burned. It was a terrible time in our city. A State of Emergency was declared, troops were stationed, and the governor set up office in the city. Yet, the unrest was not quelled by a show of force, it was managed by elected officials, like Congressman Elijah Cummins, and clergy, who said we feel your pain and will listen and carry your message. The clergy rallied over 500 strong to lift our voices, and, on Thursday night, we petitioned God to "save our city and give us another chance." Indeed, God heard our cry. On Friday morning, the State Attorney's statement turned us from a city on the brink to a city on a hill. Today, our Mayor announced changes that are being made and efforts that will make our city more open and more united.

We have a long way to go, so pray for our strength in the Lord and pray for the communities that are hoping for serious change.

Let me also thank each and every one of you for your encouragement during the 40th Anniversary celebration. It seems so strange to talk about 40 years of ministry, yet that is what God has given. I enjoy this service and I enjoy watching persons reach their potential and experiencing the joy attached to that.

We, too, are celebrating a great moment-10 years of witness for KACP. When the pastors and leaders came together to form this organization a little over 10 years ago we had no idea that we would be putting a stamp on a ministry of excellence that so many others would seek to emulate. Through the crises of the past years, our churches have been able to navigate the stressors and keep their churches open for those who need a word from the Lord. That is a mission of KACP; we seek to develop strong leadership and healthy practices that empower churches to be bright lights in the kingdom.

This year's conference will highlight this effort; our theme is "Dreaming Big Dreams!" I really believe that the church is called to get out of the box and do what others only talk about. It has been said that the church lags society by at least 20 years, but what we are advancing is the idea that we need to set the trend and call for others to follow. Our conference will start on Monday, first with a Golf Tournament and then in the evening we will have our 10th Anniversary Reception right here at New Psalmist. Tuesday and Wednesday will be jam-packed with useful information that will help each church rise to new levels. I will preach Tuesday night and Dr. Gina Stewart will preach Wednesday night. You have to be here, as it will revolutionize your church! Pastors, leaders, and members are all invited. The registration form is on the website. Register Now!

I am excited about what will be happening, so plan now to be a part of this major move of God.
