About Us

We are a movement of hope transforming communities by developing and deploying African American leaders, planting & revitalizing churches, advancing biblical justice and restoring families. This is our Vision & Mission!


There is tension in the Earth. Our nation is crying out for real change. The hour demands more of all of us. We cannot go back to what was our norm pre-Covid. There is a demand to release the Body of Christ into their purpose and personal mission to make disciples.

The National Black Fellowship

As with other Ethnic Fellowships within The Assembly of God, the majority
of our constituents represent our racial and cultural heritage, which is Black.
What we are does not limit what we do nor where we go nor whom we embrace.

All Ordained Black and other Ministers Pastoring a predominantly Black congregation
(over 50% black) holding accredited fellowship certificates may be members.

All Black Congregations (50% greater) affiliated with Assemblies of God
may be members of The National Black Fellowship.
