The unique gifts of the African-American churches can edify the catholic church
Nevin Lectures: Encountering African-American Christianity

Nevin Lecturer: Dr. Vincent Bacote, Associate Professor of Theology and the Director of the Center for Applied Christian Ethics, Wheaton College

A half century after the height of the Civil Rights movement, the United States still  simmers with racial tension. 

The church is called to be a communion of reconciliation for all tribes, tongues, peoples, and nations. Tragically, the American church often reflects and even exacerbates racial divisions. 

In many parts of America, the divide between back and white churches are as deep and persistent as denominational differences. We live in different worlds, and know little about one another.

As the 2020 Nevin Lecturer, Wheaton College theologian Vincent Bacote addresses this wound in the body of Christ.

His lectures will ask why there is a “Black” church and describe the relationship of “Black Theology” to African-American churches.

Dr. Bacote will explain how the unique gifts of the African-American churches can edify the catholic church, and will call white believers to build the kinds of churches that can receive these gifts.

Join us on February 7-8 for these challenging lectures on this crucial, but unsettling topic.
