Rev. Ladd’s co-preacher for this service will be Bishop Douglas Miles of Koinonia Baptist Church in Baltimore. Bishop Miles is a nationally respected leader in congregation-based community organizing, serving as a keystone of both his local Baltimore organization (BUILD) and on the national strategy team for the Industrial Areas Foundation, the largest and longest-standing community organizing body in the country.
Together, Rev. Nancy and Bishop Miles will reflect on the call of the church and it’s people five years after the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and beyond. What is the call of the church in this age? How do people of faith rise to answer it?
