Building the Bridge Exists…

To contribute to the continued advancement of diversity within the UPCI by (1) effectively evangelizing the African American/Black community in North America, (2) promoting intentional inclusion and cultural affirmation within the UPCI, and (3) providing resources and advice to UPCI leaders and constituents on matters of importance to the African American/Black community.

Save The Date: June 16 - 18, 2021

These are the dates for the 2021 Building the Bridge Conference that will be held at GRACE LIFE Pentecostal Church in Memphis, TN. This last year has been like none the church has ever seen or dealt with before. Thus, we can no longer do church or conferences “as usual.” BTB Conference 2021 CAN NOT be an “ordinary” conference because we are not living in ordinary times! The church in this hour is facing arduous and complex problems in our world. Problems we cannot, should not, and will not stray away from.

If you desire to REACH our world with the Gospel in this hour, EMBRACE new cultures as they enter the body of Christ, help ASSIMILATE members of those cultures into the body of Christ, and PRESERVE the harvest until the day of our Lord then don’t miss this conference! At BTB Conference 2021 we will, with love, wisdom, and by the leading of the Holy Spirit, answer the tough questions, address the elephants in the room, and lead the discussions we must have as the body to R.E.A.P. the harvest the Lord has trusted us to R.E.A.P. in this hour. Let us lock arms and enter the fields. The harvest is ready.

Forward Together!
