Black Moses: The Lay Community Ministry of Harriet Tubman

We know Harriet Tubman as one of the most recognized icons in American History. In celebration of the legacy and impact of Lay Community Ministry, we will reflect on how faith, family, and community empowered Harriet Tubman to live a purpose driven life. We will explore her multi-vocational career, ministry, and confront the obstacles she faced thatcontinue to be fought today.  As a spirit-led leader, Harriet’s holy work leaves an inspiring trail of lessons learned and spiritual practices that resonate for lay leaders, clergy, and social justice warriors.
