Friday night, Feb 21st, our NT-NL Synod, ELCA communicator Mr. Jason O’Neill represented our synod at the annual founders day celebration and re-dedication of the Richard Allen chapel at Paul Quinn College (site of our 2020 NT-NL Synod Assembly April 24-25).
It was a festive occasion with over 1,500 attendees celebrating Paul Quinn’s African Methodist Episcopal (AME) heritage. Present at the event was Bishop Vashti Murphy-McKenzie (pictured with Jason) who is the AME bishop in our area and will be preaching at our Friday evening worship service at assembly. Also present was the president of Paul Quinn Dr. Michael Sorrell. We are grateful to the hospitality of Paul Quinn and look forward to building our relationship both with our AME siblings and potential relationship between PQC and Briarwood Retreat Center/Briarwood Leadership Center. #NTNL #PQC #BWTX #InMissionTogether
