The inaugural BMore Now conference is set to commence in the heart of Baltimore.

Presented by Bishop James Nelson Jr., BMore Now is a one-day empowerment conference that addresses issues within the Baltimore community.

“Employment, economic equity, safety and serving our seniors are key elements that BMore Now aims to impact,” says Nelson, senior pastor of Destiny Christian Church. “Access to healthy living and effectively transitioning formerly incarcerated individuals into a new life are additional aspects of BMore Now.”

The event will provide resources and actionable steps for citizens to help generate positive change and there is no one more equipped to inspire Baltimore citizens than the renowned Bishop T.D. Jakes.

Bishop T.D. Jakes, a pastor, leader, visionary and entrepreneur, is founder and senior pastor of The Potter’s House, a global humanitarian organization and church with more than 30,000 members based in Dallas. Jakes will be the featured speaker of the event, galvanizing the Baltimore community through both his enticing words and thinking.
