DALLAS - In today’s challenging times, whether economically, spiritually or morally, faith has been the cornerstone of survival for many.
With employment, teen pregnancy, drug use and high foreclosure rates ravishing communities and this nation; many are in need of spiritual guidance.
In an effort to fulfill a spiritual void, while also raising funds for Dallas’ only HBCU, the Paul Quinn College Office of Development is presenting the inaugural Annual Resurrection Revival, April 13-15, 2009, hosted by Pastor Jerome McNeil and Temple of Faith Christian Chapel CME, 14120 Noel Road, Dallas, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
“We are so blessed to have these renowned spiritual personalities take time to share God’s word with the people of Dallas on behalf of Paul Quinn College, the oldest HBCU in the state of Texas,” said development officer Carolyn Fitzgerald.. “If not for the generosity of these spiritual leaders and the contributions of other donors, many students at Paul Quinn College would never have a chance at higher education.”
A spiritual awakening and renewal of hope is essential in these difficult and distorted times, explained Ms. Fitzgerald. “The illustrious spiritual leaders are led to bless the city of Dallas with messages of restoration, hope, salvation, fellowship and brotherhood.”
During the Revival, offerings are encouraged to benefit Paul Quinn College, a private liberal arts education center affiliated with the African Methodist Episcopal Church.
“We are thrilled and excited that the faith-based community continues to rap their arms around the school,” said Michael Sorrell, Paul Quinn College’s 34th President.
