FIRM FOUNDATION COVENANT SERVICE
Wednesday, February 6, 2019
This free event is open to the public and all are welcome.
Formerly named the Endowment Convocation, this annual service is sponsored by the Board of Bishops of the A.M.E. Zion Church, chaired by Bishop George E. Battle, Jr., and facilitated by Bishop Kenneth Monroe. At this special gathering, the bishops conduct a moving and inspiring service and bring collections from their Episcopal Districts in support of the Seminary.
In announcing this year’s service, Dr. Vergel Lattimore, President of the Seminary, said, “Hood's recognition as a viable and thriving institution has been made possible by the unyielding and consistent support by the Board of Bishops of the A.M.E. Zion Church. As HTS strives to build capacity and generosity to support viability and creative programming, unrestricted annual giving becomes more crucial.” Unrestricted contributions to Hood for the Firm Foundation Annual Fund enable the Seminary to direct funds toward its greatest needs.
President Lattimore encourages all Zionites, friends and supporters of the Seminary to attend this year’s Firm Foundation Covenant Service and to participate in its joyous fellowship.
