The His Works United (HWU) Elder’s Council meets on the third Thursday of the month from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. However, this month we are meeting on the 4th Thursday, June 28. We meet at a different site each month and a hot meal is provided. The site of the June meeting is St. Peter’s AME Church, 401 East 41st Street, Minneapolis, Mn 55409!
We look forward to fellowship with you this Thursday June 28th at our Elders Council meeting. Declining attendance, lower offering totals, difficult community issues and rising costs are among the challenges that today’s African American pastor has to face. This is a testing season for the servant of God called to be a pastor. The Policy Board decided that it is time to have open discussion and idea sharing around the complex challenges of pastoral ministry in 2018. That will be the central focus of our coming together and we need to hear about your unique challenges and the insights that you have discovered. Bishop Fred Washington, and Bishop Richard Howell will be central in moving our discussion forward. Additionally we have important matters related to our opportunities for the critical election season.
In addition, the Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo will be present with us. There is much rumor and speculation regarding the untimely death of Thurman Blevins, Jr. The Chief will allow us to separate fact from fiction for the benefit of our community.
