2017 MCC Conference for People of African Descent, Friends, and Advocates

3 August 2017 - 5 August 2017

Grounded in Love

Since 1998, the MCC Conference for People of African Descent, Friends and Advocates has been a landmark MCC event that is rooted in the African-American cultural experience. The MCC PAD Conference really is for everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, or nationality. Everyone is invited to come share in and experience the richness of African-American culture.

The 2017 MCC PAD Conference theme GROUNDED IN LOVE reflects our commitment to stand firmly upon the firm foundation of God’s love for us — a love that compels us to live with a holy boldness that honors who we are and where we have come from and that also frees us to become who God is calling us to be.

Worship and speakers will inspire us. Workshops will equip us. Being together will encourage us.

The 2017 MCC PAD Conference Convener is Rev. Elder Darlene Garner. The Planning Chair is Rev. Candy Holmes. The Planning Committee includes conference hosts MCC of Greater St Louis, MO and volunteers from across the United States.
