Join us for our Faith-Based Development Initiative Annual Summit on Wednesday, Nov. 18, and Thursday, Nov. 19.
Over a two-hour period each day, from Noon – 2 p.m. ET, this forum will explore the role houses of worship can play in the development of affordable housing and community facilities serving low- and moderate-income communities, and the expanding movement nationally to facilitate these efforts.
As demographics shift and new economic and cultural realities emerge, the two-day summit will examine the role that development has played and could play in helping houses of worship remain relevant and impactful in a changing context around the country. We will also examine how government and private sector partners – nonprofit and for-profit – can collaborate with the faith community in developing housing and community facilities that serve a range of needs.
Keynote speakers are:
• Rev. Dr. Patrick Duggan, Executive Director, United Church of Christ Church Building and Loan Fund
• Rev. Matthew Watley, Senior Pastor, Kingdom Fellowship A.M.E. Church
