Kentucky Council of Churches to meet in Danville

October 15, 2004

The supreme governing body of the Kentucky Council of Churches will convene at the facilities of First Christian Church, Danville on Oct. 28-29.

Delegates from more than eleven Christian denominations representing more than 900,000 Kentuckians could adopt a new policy statement on tax justice and a statement on Christian principles in an election year, among other items of business.

Members of the community are invited to attend a worship service during this 57th Annual Assembly of the Kentucky Council of Churches at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 28.

The Rev. Otis Moss III will be guest preacher for the evening. The Rev. Moss - pastor of The Historic Tabernacle Baptist Church in Augusta, Ga. - has been named by the African American Pulpit Journal as one of the "20 to watch" young ministers who will shape the future of the African American church.


The Rev. Moss is one of the few African-Americans to ever receive Yale University's Magee Fellowship in the school's 300-year history. Moss was also the recipient of the inaugural Herrington Prize for preaching, evangelism, community service and contributions to Christian ministry.

Local residents are also welcome to attend other portions of the Kentucky Council of Churches' 57th Annual Assembly, though registration is required for any event other than the Thursday evening worship service with the Rev. Moss.

Other events include workshops on tax justice for the Commonwealth, overcoming the racial divide, new resources for youth ministry, a fatherhood-mentoring project, new expressions of Christian Community, new movements in Christian unity, morality and the food we eat, resources for ecumenical formation, Spiritual Direction and Spiritual Disciplines.

Don C. Richter, Associate Director of the Valparaiso Project, will be the keynote speaker on Friday morning and will lead an experiential exercise on practicing our faith.
