* Due to COVID-19 These are difficult times for the world. Faith, wisdom, and perseverance will be the keys to coping for each of us.  We had hoped to hold the NBF REACH Conference in Chicago on July 20-22, 2020.  The COVID-19 crisis has hit hard in our country and especially our inner cities. The NBF Executive Committee, after thorough discussion, unanimously moved to postpone the REACH Conference and elections until Fall 2020.

“ENOUGH”

2020 will mark the 40th year for the NBF. Like the children of Israel who wandered around the wilderness for 40 years, I feel the Lord is saying “ENOUGH!!!” IT IS TIME TO MOVE FORWARD. I feel the same for the people of Chicago and the inner cities of America. Nationally, America’s inner cities are under demonic assault and the Church is equipped and empowered to be God’s solution to rescue the people. It is time!  – Walter Harvey
