Description

Faith and Health: MAKING THE CONNECTION

16th Annual CONFERENCE for CLERGY and CONGREGATIONAL LEADERS

“What’s Working: Tools for Faith Leaders in Memphis”

Keynote Speaker:

Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III

Rev. Dr. Otis Moss

With civil rights advocacy in his DNA, Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III built his ministry on community advancement and social justice activism. As Senior Pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, IL, Dr. Moss spent the last two decades practicing and preaching a Black theology that unapologetically calls attention to the problems of mass incarceration, environmental justice, and economic inequality.

With a unique gift to communicate across generations, Dr. Moss’ creative Bible-based messages have inspired young and old alike. His intergenerational preaching gift has made Dr. Moss a popular speaker on college campuses and at conferences and churches across the globe. He is highly influenced by the works of Zora Neale Hurston, August Wilson, Howard Thurman, Jazz, and Hip-Hop music. The work and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the pastoral ministry of his father, Dr. Otis Moss, Jr. of Cleveland, Ohio, have been primary mentors for his spiritual formation.

He is married to his college sweetheart, the former Monica Brown of Orlando, Florida, a Spelman College and Columbia University graduate. They are the proud parents of two creative and humorous children, Elijah Wynton and Makayla Elon.

Please join us as we hear Rev. Dr. Otis Moss and our community leaders speak to Memphis and surrounding area clergy and laypersons about practical tools that can impact change for various congregational issues.


The conference is FREE, but space is limited to the first 300 registrants. Deadline to register is October 19, 2017. Registration includes a continental breakfast and a box lunch.
