The Jack Crum Conference on Prophetic Ministry is an annual ecumenical gathering for North Carolina faith leaders to learn, dialogue and respond to issues related to the local history of prophetic ministry and our faith-based values of social justice. Jack Crum was a courageous member of the NC Council of Churches staff during several years of the struggle for racial justice in the South.
This year’s theme, “One Bread, One Body : Faithfully Embracing Diversity” will focus on Wake County Public Schools as the front lines of a national trend towards dismantling school diversity policies.
The keynote speaker will be Civil Rights Movement leader, Rev. James Lawson. The guest preacher will be NAACP-NC President, Rev. Dr. William Barber.
Come be informed and inspired with other clergy and concerned people of faith as we put the current challenge to school diversity within the context of our scriptures, traditions and history and discern a vision for a collective faith-based response.
