LOUISVILLE — The first and historic Matthew 25 Summit was held January 16-18 at New Life Presbyterian Church in South Fulton, Georgia. This event was the first in-person gathering for people committed to and interested in learning more about the Matthew 25 movement.

More than 350 participants from across the country, representing 15 of the 16 synods of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), traveled to the Atlanta area the week of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday.

The three-day conference featured plenary talks from Presbyterian leaders, the Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis and Dr. William Yoo, and the Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb, Palestinian Lutheran pastor, with music from Dr. Tony McNeill and The Many and additional preaching from New Life’s team leader, the Rev. Hodari Williams and the Rev. Dr. Diane Givens Moffett, president and executive director of the Presbyterian Mission Agency.
