This summer, BSK offered a special, non-credit certificate program for leaders of Cooperative Baptist Fellowship churches in the Bahamas. A team from the seminary spent a weekend learning and worshipping with church leaders in the Bahamas. Dr. Lewis Brogdon, Executive Director of BSK’s Institute for Black Church Studies, explored the topic of “Ministry in an Age of Global & Social Change” with a special emphasis on the Africans of the Diaspora. This certificate program, hosted at FoxTown Baptist Church on the island of Abaco, also included conversations between the local church leaders and Dr. Anthony Everett, Director of BSK’s Siloam Project, Dr. Laura Levens, Associate Professor of Christian Mission at BSK, and Erica Whitaker, Associate Director of the Institute for Black Church Studies. This conversation addressed ways of engaging people beyond the walls of the church. Fifteen individuals received these non-credit certificates and a special stole from Rev. Tammy Snyder, director of CBF Florida and the Caribbean Islands.
