Prophetic Ministry: The Black Church & Theological Education

Bishop William P. DeVeaux insists that the task of theological education is to prepare Christian ministers who will be prophetic in thought, word and action.

Bishop William P. DeVeaux insists that the task of theological education is to prepare Christian ministers who will be prophetic in thought, word and action. But before seminaries can accomplish this task for African Americans, considerable misinformation about the black religious experience and its participants must be corrected, and theological faculties must more skillfully assist their students in translating theology into the concrete practice of ministry. Bishop DeVeaux concludes by offering several strategies to improve theological education's ability to meet the needs of the Black Church. DeVeaux has served as the bishop of the 18th district of the African Methodist Episcopal Church.
