about harambee

HARAMBEE is a Youth Conference planned by the HARAMBEE Planning Committee under the guidance of the executive board of the Southeastern Jurisdiction Black Methodists for Church Renewal, Inc. The conference is held annually to help youth develop their spiritual, leadership and interpersonal skills. In doing so, youth will begin to develop relationships, connect with each other, and learn how to bridge the gap from generation to generation. The conference will also help youth, as well as adults, explore what it really means to pull together and work together in Christian love. Come to work, pray, sing, and build meaningful relationships with God and each other.
