It is again with the incomparable Joy of Jesus that I welcome you today to this site. We are excited and getting ready for another great day of lecturing and fellowship. I invite you to come and experience what it means to come “Around the U”; an environment of “Continuous Learning and Improvement”.. Be well assured that your coming will be a time of encouragement, empowerment and increase; in your knowledge and understanding concerning your part in God’s Kingdom Business.
You will be joined with like-minded Pastors who are focused and have a desire to experience Good Success in their ministries; Advancing the Kingdom of God. We will gather under a common cause, call, and need.
The Pastor's U Lectures Forward Leadership Equipping Conference establishes a Leadership Platform to Engage, Educate, Equip, Encourage, Empower, Energize, and Elevate. For over ten years, The Pastor's U Lectures has been a "must attend" for many of the Pastors in the Hampton Roads Community of Southeastern Virginia. This is the third year for the FLEC Offering. This year, We will be blessed to be equipped on the prestigious grounds of higher and spiritual learning; Mount Gilead Missionary Baptist Church. The facilitators serving you today are Dr. Dwight Riddick, Gethsemane Baptist Church, Newport News, Dr. (Bishop) Kim Brown, “The Mount” Lebanon Baptist Church, Chesapeake, Dr. (Bishop) B. Courtney McBath, Calvary Revival, Norfolk, and Dr. (Host Pastor) Shelton Murphy, Mount Gilead MBC, Norfolk.

They will teach disciplines to help you Reach and Operate at a Consistent Level of Ministry Excellence and Effectiveness in 2018.
