Ministers' Conference

A Message from the Executive Director

Reverend Debra L. Haggins, M.Div., Ph.D., University Chaplain

Greetings Fellow Clergy and Musicians,

Welcome to HUMC 2021 and our first virtual conference. Again this year, environmental and health zeitgeists prevent us from gathering safely at your Home by the Sea. However, we thank God for the technological advancements which will bring us into fellowship for two days of preaching, lectures, and worship in the Hampton tradition we love so well.

We are pleased to take a look back at the last couple of decades of the HUMC & Choir Guild at the turn of the twenty-first century, and lift just a few of the innumerable powerfully prophetic voices of the Black Church we have come to know and remember with honor. Let’s take the time to look back at a few memorable moments as we chart a new post-pandemic course into the future. Be sure to check the website often for details, updates, and digital publications of the two-day agenda.

May the Lord’s blessings of safe-keeping be upon you, your ministries, and your families.

Virtually Yours in Christ,
Rev. Dr. Debra L. Haggins, Ph.D.
University Chaplain/HUMC Executive Director
