Welcome to our website. NBPC is committed to Jesus Christ and work to ensure that the witness of Presbyterians of African descent is healthy, growing, dynamic and empowering; that racial justice is integral in the church's self-understanding and lived out in every aspect of ministry within the Presbyterian Church.
We welcome you to join our chapter as a member, affiliated member or a mission partner. You are also invited to attend our monthly meetings.
We meet on the first Tuesday of the month and alternate Noon and evening (6:30 pm) meeting times. Meeting begin with a light lunch or dinner and are held at Oxford Presby. Church and Cedar Park Presby Church and also alternate between the churches.
Chapter co-sponsored with the Philadelphia Presby. a Black History Month Celebration program in February and a Christmas gathering in December.
The Chapter meetings consist of training seminars, workshops; guest presenters; and information sharing across the churches and patterning with presbytery. Our goal is to develop collaborative efforts among our churches and ministries, grow our membership and work closer together.
