Strengthening the Black Church for the 21st Century assists United Methodist churches with predominantly black congregations in becoming effective in mission and ministry. It does this by linking successful congregational resource centers with congregations that are in search of new ideas and revitalization. Through training, partner congregations receive hope, inspiration, encouragement and determination to go forward with the vision the Lord has given the church. Churches qualify to be partner congregations if they demonstrate a willingness to change and be open and eager to devote time and resources to making the training process a success.
