SERVE 2011 was an amazing success.  Our thanks to all who worked so hard to make it so.  And, thanks to the photographers and videographers from 35 or so churches who worked late on Saturday or Sunday night to send us material for this MissionCast.  We will devote several MissionCasts to sharing the SERVE 2011 story.  This MissionCast has some of the initial photos and video clips and reflections by Bishop Schnase who was serving at Kingdom House, in St. Louis.

170. Black College Fund – UMTV

Ludhiana Chaplains

Following the Civil War, the former Methodist Episcopal Church organized the Freedmen’s Aid Society to help educate Black people newly freed from slavery. Between 1866 and 1882, the society established more than 70 schools in the U.S. South and Southwest. Today, 11 colleges from that group—some created by mergers with other institutions—continue to educate people from all backgrounds.

The 1972 General Conference established the Black College Fund apportionment, which provides a constant reliable way to support United Methodist-related historically Black colleges’ operations, programs and captial improvements. Today The United Methodist Church supports 11 historically Black colleges and universities, more than any other religious denominations.

The Black College Fund helps:

* Maintain solid, challenging academic programs; strong faculties; and well-equipped buildings.
* Create vibrant spiritual environments that encourage pride and self-esteem in the accomplishments of African Americans.
* Provide the opportunity for approximately 16,000 students to interact with academic staffs that serve as strong cultural and spiritual mentors.
* Prepare and educate people for the new global technological world—never veering from an academic excellence based on the Christian perspective of community, service and social responsibility.
