African American ministers

The Board of Pensions ​​is offering this conference in partnership with Johnson C. Smith Theological Seminary to African American ministers called to serve in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

CREDO provides dedicated time and space for reflection and renewal, helping to rekindle your ministry and assess its future directions.

At this CREDO conference, you will have opportunities to develop personally in all areas of wholeness — spiritual, vocational, health, and financial — while deepening your relationships with African American clergy in the PC(USA).

  • are enrolled in Pastor's Participation in the Benefits Plan;
  • are age 30 through 65;
  • have been ordained for at least three years; and
