We are thrilled to have the wisdom and leadership of Dr. Jerry Taylor who will be our keynote speaker. Dr. Jerry Taylor serves as an Associate Professor of Bible at Abilene Christian University in Texas.
Dr. Taylor has been influential in spearheading and organizing summits all over the country that are designed to promote education and conversations on issues of race with an end goal of greater genuine unity in the Body of Christ. Dr. Taylor will share about the birth and development of these summits while challenging us all to take intentional steps toward genuine unity across ethnic, cultural, and socio-economic lines.
He is the author of “Courageous Compassion: A Prophetic Homiletic in Service to the Church,” a collection of his sermons published alongside reflections from other scholars and denominational leaders.
Dr. Taylor earned a bachelor’s degree in Bible from Southwestern Christian College in 1984. He obtained his master of divinity (1988) and his doctor of ministry degree (1995) from Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University. He was also given the Outstanding Leadership Award at the NAACP convention in 1996. He is one of the organizers of the annual New Wineskins Ministers Retreat.
Before accepting his professorship at Abilene Christian University, Dr. Taylor preached at a number of churches and had a ministry working with the poor in Atlanta. While there, he also formed an inner-city ministry team with local college students. In addition to the teaching and writing at Abilene, Dr. Taylor takes an active role in mentoring students and is known for helping his students deepen their spiritual discernment during a four day silent retreat that he facilitates at the Labh Shomea House of Prayer near Sarita, Texas.
