The Charles E. Booth Preaching Conference came into being in 2011 to address the issue of dearth when considering the current trend in preaching, in general, and African-American preaching in particular. The absence of the pulpit prophetic in addressing the concerns that challenge our people necessitate such a conference.
The purpose of having the conference:
1. Keeping Passion in One’s Preaching
2. Christ-Centered Preaching in Contemporary Life
3. Building Relationships in the Preaching Fraternity
4. Strengthen the Preacher’s Devotional Life
5. Remaining True to the Sermonic Ingredients: the Wedding of Information and Inspiration

Dr. Booth's rich legacy allows him to continue to expose us to the teaching of some of the great theologians, preachers and teachers in this nation.
This conference is one of utmost significance to me, as a ``forever student``. It continues to provide prophetic insight, relevant themes that address today's current affairs and circumstances that challenge us and those we serve. These renowned ``academicians of The Word``, given our present times, allow a sense of calm, but vigilance; knowing that together we will make acute strides to help to move our world to spaces of peace--with authenticity.
