ABOUT

THE BISHOP'S BRIGADE


The Bishop’s Brigade is an initiative of Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International that reimagines Serving, Sowing and the Social Economy for the 21st century. The initiative places faith, partnerships, community, and conscious economy at an equal center to empower those most in need.

The group leverages the donations of a diverse set of partners from the church/cleric community, corporate and non-profit sectors to create and promote deep impact social action programs that address some of the most important issues affecting communities today. Every dollar sown is put into direct service via a model that empowers our partners to fully harness the power of faith and the social footprint of faith epicenters around the world to create new futures.

Black Male Achievement

Rising incidents of police brutality, low graduation rates and the multi-generational impact of poverty and incarceration indicate that young black men are growing up in a culture that is resistant to their survival. In 2012, the Schott Foundation reported that the national graduation rate for Black males was just 51 percent.

  1. Comparatively, young black men are 10 times more likely to be in state or federal prison than whites with the highest concentration of inmates ranging in age from age 18 to 19.
  2. Taking action on this issue is of high importance to people of faith. Preserving the rights of “the least of these” and those being persecuted is key to building church cultures that engage and change the community. Bishop’s Brigade seeks to join the growing ranks of faith, community, and business leaders, like the Obama Administration’s My Brother’s Keeper Initiative.
  3. Taking steps to give young black men a better chance at living a full life.

STEM/STEAM Based Learning

  1. The U.S. Department of Education and the Obama Administration have committed to supporting the infusion of STEM/STEAM into curricula and programming across the country. Investing in STEM/STEAM learning in our schools and youth programs demonstrates a commitment to “economic prosperity, international competitiveness, a strong national defense, a clean energy future, and longer, healthier lives for all Americans"4. The local churches, organizations and companies affiliated with the Bishop’s Brigade are ripely positioned in urban epicenters to be viable partners, literal innovation incubators, and have a direct reach within communities of color and other underserved groups.
