The AAPC is actively involved in community initiatices through member partnerships with 100 Black Men of Central Virginia, UVA Office of Community Engagement, and many more.
The AAPC seeks to promote community growth through available resources in the area. These resources will be made available here. Community events will also be shared through our calendar.
The vision of the AAPC is to empower pastors through information, instruction, and inspiration; benefiting our congregation and communities. Our coalition currently holds 25 congregations.
It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Official Website of the African-American Pastor’s Council of Charlottesville and Vicinity. Currently, we represent approximately twenty African-American Churches in Charlottesville City, as well as Albemarle, Greene, Nelson, Fluvanna, and Orange Counties in Central Virginia.
Our purpose is to, through information, invitation, and intervention, enrich, empower, encourage, and educate our Area Communities as we face these shifting and challenging times. We invite you to benefit from our evolving church directory, black business directory, and downloadable resource pages. Future phases of this project will include live streaming, an advertising marketplace, and an AAPC Web Store.
