When asked why he’s invested in his work as American Baptist Home Mission Societies’ National Coordinator for Justice and Advocacy, the Rev. Kerwin Webb replied, “because my faith commitments require faith in action.” Dedicated to “truth-telling” and “equipping agents of change,” Rev. Webb is called to cultivate and strengthen networks of justice advocates who demonstrate faith in action, serve as public witnesses, and advance the healing and transforming of communities in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
With a Master’s of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary, Rev. Webb has routinely put his education and passion to work. He participated in the NAACP NextGEN Leadership Training Program and earned an International Certificate in Youth, Theology, and Innovation; served as Youth Program Coordinator with Next Generation Ministries and Assistant Coordinator for the Building Healthier, More Equitable Communities Initiative at Interfaith Neighbors; and put boots on the ground with Habitat for Humanity and Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Projects.
He states simply, “I have to be about my Father’s business.”
