Community Imperative. Faith-Based communities can lead. THIS FRIDAY MORNING: Fridays in Black August Prayer Service. August 11, 2023

Our Faith-Based community members play a vital role in all aspects within our community for:  equity, inclusion, addressing domestic and gun violence, 21st Century Slavery and sexual exploitation, recovery\homelessness, water & food insecurity, mental & physical health well-being, disasters, emergency, climate-risk management, sustainability, and other issues in our communities.

The 2019-and long-term on going recovery from the COVID-19 global pandemic brought communities together to address these issues. 

This momentum cannot stop.  We cannot return to business as usual at a time before affected our communities.

BEMA International supports the Samual DeWitt Proctor Conference Inc organization, our faith-based communities, organizations addressing the issues of vulnerable women, girls (Upward African Woman), and other member and affiliated organizations to address community issues locally, regionally, and national. 

“We are One”.

We ask that our members get involved locally.  Continue with the trust, credibility, and integrity that came to light during the global pandemic to address the issues in your community.  Get involved in the policies, decision-making, and other community issues. 

Our next generation leaders, those in elementary, middle, and high school are watching and learning from our actions to be the leaders that they are destined to be.

Get involved.

Join Us FRIDAY Morning!







We are issuing a call to prayer during the month of August!

The Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference, Inc. (SDPC) is a nonprofit organization and United Nations NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) sharply focused on advancing the mission to nurture, support and mobilize African American faith, civic, corporate and philanthropic leaders to address critical needs of human and social justice within local, national and global communities. Named to honor the late Rev. Dr. Samuel DeWitt Proctor - a global 20th century educator, theologian, and civic leader - the overarching organization’s goals are to strengthen the individual and collective capacity of thought leaders and activists in the academy, church and community through education, advocacy and activism. Founded in 2003, it is a respected network of ecumenical congregations, clergy and lay leaders that embodies the values of academic excellence, transgenerational engagement, and community outreach as evidence of faith and Christian witness.



Statement on Discrimination, Intimidation, and Harassment


Since our inception, the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference (SDPC), Inc. has sought to nurture, sustain, and mobilize the African American faith community – in collaboration with civic, corporate, and philanthropic leaders – to address critical needs of human rights and social justice within local, national, and global communities. As a trusted interdenominational justice organization, it is our priority to be the place and space for ALL- radically inclusive and anchored in love. To that end, SDPC is an organization that has no tolerance for discrimination, abuse, homophobia, all forms of gender-based violence, sexual impropriety, intimidation, or harassment based upon age, citizenship status, diverse-abilities, ethnicity, gender, national origin, race, and sexual orientation. The SDPC adheres to these principles and expectations to respect the rights of others to ensure a safe nonviolent environment of its work and event spaces.
