Held in Cleveland, Ohio, The Navigator AFAM Network-sponsored event was co-hosted by Pastor Kevin James and the New Community Bible Fellowship. The Navigators helped to register 426 eager attendees including 111 from the host church; 153 students from 16 schools and 163 Navigator staff and laborers from across the country.
The purpose and theme was to “IGNITE a Movement of Disciple-Makers” among African-Americans in the church, on campus, in urban and suburban settings, among military personnel, and in the marketplace. Congress messages include “Reaching the Marketplace for Christ,” “Reconciliation in a Racially Divided Society,” “Effective Discipleship in the Urban Church,” “Discipleship: A Movement of Life-Change in the Military,” and “Transforming Urban Communities Through Discipleship.”
