African American Ministry
People reaching people, churches, and villages connecting the world. The Office of African American Ministries, as part of the Affinity Ministries Team, is your link to ministry and church health resources specific to the African American churches, communities, and multi-ethnic ministries. Our office strives to cooperate with other Baptist bodies to minister to African Americans and others in fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. Our objectives are:
- Serve as facilitator and liaison to Texas Baptists (BGCT) and the African American churches and community.
- Implement and develop leadership training for pastors, ministers, laity and other church and ministry related functions.
- Provide consultation to churches, associational leadership and Texas Baptists (BGCT) staff in cross-cultural relationships, evangelism, discipleship, worship, stewardship, and Bible study.
- Conduct research and study projects to determine the needs of African American and other related churches.
The scholarships are funded through the Mary Hill Davis Offering® for Texas Missions sponsored annually by Woman’s Missionary Union of Texas. The Mary Hill Davis Ethnic/Minority Scholarship Program is designed to strengthen Texas Baptist churches by providing scholarships to Baptist students from ethnic/minority backgrounds planning to attend a Texas Baptist university.
