Who is NBPC?
The NBPC is an organization of inter-generational Black Presbyterians who are committed to Jesus Christ and who 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; and that the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is culturally plural in mission and ministry.
NBPC represents the historic legacy and continuing existence of a Black Caucus in the Presbyterian Church which was first organized by Black clergy in 1856 at Shiloh Presbyterian Church of New York City.
NBPC works in programmatic partnership with the African American Congregational Enhancement Office of the General Assembly; and works with the Advocacy Committee for Racial Ethnic Concerns (ACREC) of the General Assembly to develop recommendations to be acted upon by General Assembly.
NBPC has an Africa Connection program that includes mission partnering with churches in Africa.
