The Interfaith Summit: The Role of the Faith Community in Times Like These
Hosted by the Community Council of Metropolitan Atlanta, this summit is Tuesday, December 8, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon at the Interdenominational Theological Center.
This summit is for religious leaders of churches, temples, mosques, and synagogues in the metropolitan area, rather than the general public, and will include viable strategies, open dialogue, light refreshments, and purposeful fellowship, as we address three critical community issues.
The agenda will include the following issues:
1. Challenges of Disconnected Youth - Presenter: Mike Masarek, CCMA Board of Directors;
2. The Plight of Young Black Males- Presenter: Robert Yeldell, CEO, People Building People LLC;
3. The Absent Father Syndrome - Presenter: Roosevelt Muhammad, Program Coordinator, Teen Dads/Fulton County Call to Manhood; and
4. Summit Resource Panelist - Bryant Marks, Director of the Morehouse Research Center
After the opening plenary session, presenters will speak from 5-8 minutes on their respective topics, with Dr. Marks assisting with responses to special concerns during the open discussion following each presentation. The open discussions will be followed by break-out sessions, led by the presenters, after which a report-out session with recommendations will conclude the summit.
