City of Orlando Presents: The Role of Faith and Spirituality


Tuesday, February 16, 2021
6pm - 7:30pm

The City of Orlando's Black History Committee realizes the importance of the Black Church as it relates to the Black experience in America. Faith and spirituality has been one of the most powerful forces to move and motive Black people. Our faith practices and spiritual believes have changed and continue to be more varied. It is our intent to explore some of the more traditional and new models of praise worship as well as education, business and social action. This will feature a panel discussion of speakers from different backgrounds and experiences. Our goal is to affirm and celebrate these similarities and differences. 

Featured panelists include:

  • Moderator: Rev. Sharon Riley, Pastor, Agape Perfecting and Worship Center
  • Rev. Dr. Randolph Bracy, Sr., Dean of the School of Religion, Bethune-Cookman University
  • Bishop-Elect Derric McRae, Senior Pastor, Experience Christian Center; President, AACCC
  • Rev. Terrence R. Gray, Sr., Pastor, taint Mark AME Church; Vice President AACCC
  • Rev. Erika Rembert Smith, Pastor, Washington Shores Presbyterian Church
  • Imam Hatim Hamudullh - Masjid Al - Haqq
