Black Methodist Denominations Gather in Columbia

On Tuesday, February 9th, the nation's three largest Black Methodist Church denominations (combined memberships of more than 5 million) will pay tribute to Black History Month by announcing the formation of a historic coalition and plans to hold a major strategy summit in Columbia, S.C., March 1-3, 2010.

Titled the "Great Gathering," the strategy session will seek to alter the troubling history of African American males by identifying and seeking unified solutions for the key issues that are devastating the African American community. These debilitating factors include: incarceration; drug abuse; escalating unemployment; and high school dropout rates. The coalition believes a solid plan of action and the unified power of their faith, beliefs and commitment can bring significant change to the Black Community.
