The vision of the African American congregations of the Kansas East Conference is to create and cultivate culturally relevant and sustainable communities of faith so that these communities are Christ-centered and spiritually healthy.
Three long-term objectives: 1) leadership development and training for pastors, 2) education pastors on the critical nature and importance of congregational development, and 3) revitalization as well as community and economic development/revitalization of rural, inner-city and suburban neighborhoods, are the framework of the plan.
These plans will be carried out by using a transformational and revitalization learning model that is intended to build a deeper understanding between diverse congregations in urban and rural areas.
They will carry out these goals in the six African American churches within the East Conference: Mason Memorial, Kansas City; Asbury/Mt. Olive, Topeka; St. Paul, Chetopa; St. James, Coffeyville; Mason Chapel, Oswego and Hamilton Chapel, Parsons. Click on the links at the left to learn more about these churches.
