BSK Faculty Participate in Black Church Studies Consultation

Annually, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary hosts a Black Church Studies Consultation. This year’s consultation will be held on February 19-21 at LPTS. Dr. Laura Levens, Assistant Professor of Christian Mission, and Dr. John Inscore Essick, Associate Professor of Church History at BSK, will be participating in this year’s consultation which will address challenges and resources for rural African-American communities. LPTS spoke of this important conversation in a press release,

“Throughout the summer of 2019, researchers from Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary began an intensive study of African American rural ministry. Seminary professors and alumni, in partnership with congregational leaders from Bardstown, Hopkinsville, and Eminence, Kentucky, examined the issues that ministers and congregants address to effectively provide spiritual, social, and personal guidance to the rural communities they serve.”  

General admission tickets are $50 and student tickets are $25. Registration fees include meals for both days of the consultation. The registration deadline is Friday, February 15. For details and to register, click here.
