Empowering Our Youth Through Faith and Education

**Date:** Thursday, May 23, 2024

**Time:** 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

**Location:** First Baptist Church of Crown Heights

At the First Baptist Church of Crown Heights, we have always believed in the transformative power of education. This belief is deeply rooted in our mission to liberate individuals from all forms of oppression, whether spiritual, social, political, or economic. It is in this spirit that we invite you to join us for the **Faith in Education Convening** on Thursday, May 23, 2024, from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM.

### Why Attend the Faith in Education Convening?

This convening is not just another event; it is a vital gathering aimed at addressing the educational disparities faced by our underserved communities. Education has always been a cornerstone of the African American Baptist experience, serving as a pathway to freedom and empowerment. From the founding of historically Black colleges and universities to the establishment of church-sponsored schools, our faith community has long championed the cause of education.

### Featured Speakers

Our convening will feature esteemed speakers who are at the forefront of faith and education:

- **Rev. Dominique Chantell Atchison**

- **Crystal Walthall**

- **Tesa Wilson**

- **Rev. Dr. Rashad Raymond Moore**

These leaders will share their insights and strategies to energize and inform NYC's faith leadership, aiming to advance K-12 education and increase college acceptance rates for underserved communities.

### The Importance of This Event

Attending this convening means becoming part of a collective effort to ensure that every child in our community has access to quality education. Education is not just about academics; it is about empowering our youth to become leaders who can shape a better future for themselves and for generations to come.

In the words of the Apostle Paul, “But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have [it] entered into the heart of [God’s people] the things which God has prepared for those who love [God]’” (1 Corinthians 2:9). This convening is an opportunity for us to come together, share knowledge, and work towards these greater things that God has prepared for our community.

### Final Thoughts

The African American Baptist experience has always been intertwined with the pursuit of justice and equality through education. By attending the Faith in Education Convening, you are taking an active role in continuing this proud tradition. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of our youth and our community.
