Black and Reformed Leadership Network

We represent congregations with African American and Black believers who are embracing God’s vision of a diverse family, which transforms lives and communities. 

We are committed to equipping leaders, raising up emerging leaders and owning our cultural identity as leaders in the Reformed faith. We meet regularly for encouragement and planning.  We also have a larger biannual gathering.
