Kelsey-Owens Black Ministries Program
Andover Newton's commitment to provide a source of guidance and knowledge about African-American religious experience for black students and others was demonstrated by the Kelsey-Owens Black Ministries Program, which was established in 1989. The program served as a bridge-builder between African-American pastors and scholars, fostered research and reflection on black religious experience, and highlighted the contributions of African-American churches to the life of the Church as a whole. The program is currently under review and redesign by the President’s Anti-Racism Committee.
Claude Black Scholarships
In 2007 Andover Newton announced that it had created three full three year scholarships for outstanding African American students preparing for the pastoral ministry. These scholarships seek to honor one of School’s most accomplished graduates, Claude C. Black, who was perhaps the leading civil rights leader in San Antonio, if not in the entire state of Texas.
