HAMPTON, Va. (March 20, 2018)— The 104th Annual Hampton University Ministers’ Conference and 84th Annual Choir Directors’ and Organists’ Guild Workshop will convene on the campus of Hampton University from June 3-8. The Hampton University Ministers' Conference is the largest gathering of interdenominational African-American clergy of its kind in the world.

The theme for this year’s conference is “Preaching Forward, Forward Preaching: Preaching in Silent Pain.” The core Bible verse for this year’s conference comes from 1 Peter 4:16 NIV “However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name!”

Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr., Senior Pastor of Changing a Generation Full Gospel Baptist Church in Atlanta, and Co-Pastor of Greater St. Stephen Full Gospel Baptist Church in New Orleans, will serve as this year’s conference preacher. Other nationally acclaimed speakers for the conference include Rev. Dr. Phillip L. Pointer Sr., Senior Pastor of St. Mark Baptist Church in Little Rock, Ark; Rev. Dr. Wayne E. Croft Sr,. Pastor of St. Paul’s Baptist Church in West Chester, Pa; Rev. Dr. James H. Harris, Distinguished Professor and Chair of Preaching and Pastoral Theology at the School of Theology, Virginia Union University and pastor of Second Baptist Church both in Richmond, Va; Rev. Kim Y. Neal of Newark Del; Rev. Dr. Neichelle R. Guidry, of the New Creation Christian Fellowship in San Antonio, Texas; and Rev. Joe B. Fleming, Sr., Pastor of Third Baptist Church in Portsmouth, Va.   

The enduring vision of the Hampton University Ministers’ Conference is to be a model of non-sectarian interdenominational cooperation in the African-American church and in the world. The conference’s mission is to build and promote the kingdom of God on earth and serve as an opportunity for leaders to come together for an intense time of fellowship, spiritual renewal and discussion of those problems all minsters share together. The on-site registration fee is $225.
