The event is specifically geared toward the African American experience in the Reformed tradition of Christianity. Since space is limited, we try to make registration available to this community first. However, we welcome other attendees to come and learn.

Yes, LDR is hosted by the African American Ministries under Mission to North America, which is part of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).

LDR stands for leadership, development, and resource.

LDR is designed to help leaders at all stages discover how God is guiding them to faithfully serve within their vocational calling and giftedness. All believers interested in advancing the gospel through their influential leadership are encouraged to attend.

Yes! Students in middle and high school (grades 6-12) are encouraged to participate in LDR. Register your student the same as yourself. Unfortunately, due to Covid 19 concerns, we will not offer a Youth Track this year. All students should wear a mask unless fully vaccinated.


Register your student and indicate his or her grade in the space provided. The registration rate for students is the same. If this is a barrier, please email ldr@aampca.org first to request a reduced “family rate.”)
