Garnett-Nabrit Lecture Series (GNL)

Since 1958, the Garnett-Nabrit Lecture series (GNL) has educated, challenged, equipped and energized pastors, lay leaders and lay persons of the American Baptist College, National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc., and other faith communities world-wide. GNL celebrates good preaching, teaching and worship in song; the reunion and fellowship of ABC alumni; and support for ABC. Launching into the Deep continues this long-standing tradition while taking a contemporary look at evangelism, social justice, pastoral care and Christian leadership roles in the 21st century. Attendees will have opportunities to participate in workshops, hear gifted preachers and lecturers, break bread together and worship in song with some of the nation’s best Gospel singers and groups.
