The Alliance of Baptists is sponsoring a summer Atlantic coast Dr. Henry Mugabe tour. One stop Dr. Mugabe will make will be in the Fellowship Hall at Crescent Hill Baptist Church at 6PM on Wednesday, August 6.
Dr. Mugabe serves as the Principal of the Zimbabwe Theological Seminary, a recently formed ecumenical seminary. The tour's aim is to connect Dr. Mugabe with those who have supported him and his ministry in the past, and to introduce him and his ministry to individuals and congregations who may be interested in lending support in the future.
Dr. Mugabe received his Ph.D. from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and has taught as a visiting professor at the Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond and other schools in the United States aligned with moderate and progressive Baptists. He was formerly the head of a Baptist seminary in Zimbabwe but was fired in 2011 for opposing changes in governing documents that included required adherence to the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message.
Henry will be accompanied by Paula Dempsey, Director of Partnership Relations for the Alliance.
