> The SBC-21
The General Conference has voted to set forth several new programs to address membership growth and development in the United Methodist Church utilizing the theme of Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors.
The African-American segment of the UMC was to receive special attention and focus for growth and developing vital ministry. The special program is called SBC-21, better known as Strengthening the Black Church for the 21st Century.
The SBC-21 focus is to partner stronger churches with churches in need of assistance toward their development. The resource centers being the stronger churches as indicated previously will host persons from around the country to spend time in their church community observing and being mentored. They will then follow-up on a regular basis to evaluate and provide encouragement.
It is hoped that the efforts of the General Conference along with the resourcefulness of our Tennessee Conference will serve to help stimulate every church to be centers for vital, spiritual and dynamic ministries.
