St Paul’s United Methodist Men’s Day

Reverend Norma Jean Pender, affectionately known as REVEREND MOTHER, from one of Detroit’s popular radio station will be the guest speaker at ST. Paul United Methodist Men’s Day celebrate Sunday, March 13, 2016 during its 11:00 a.m. Worship service.  St. Paul is one of Michigan’s oldest United Methodist Churches in Detroit and has been servicing the neighborhood for over 92 years.

This year, unlike previous programs, the Reverend Mother will be the first female participant to serve as guest speaker in the history of the organization.  “Reverend Mother will bring an interesting twist and perspective to our program, states United Methodist Men President Richard O’Banion.”

Reverend Mother of WEXL AM Radio received the license to preach the Gospel in the Christian Episcopal Church in 1974, and was ordained in 1978 by the late Bishop E.P. Murchison.  In 1982, she accepted the call to the position of Pastor of the New Jerusalem Temple Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan.  In 1985, she was ordained in the Baptist Faith through the National Baptist Convention, USA.  Along with her responsibilities to her church, she has also been committed to a vast array of community projects, such as the NAACP, the American Business Women’s Association, and the Minister’s Volunteer Services for the Hospital Cancer Society.  It was said by Senator Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, “Ms. Pender has served the people of Michigan and has been a tireless leader for the community.  She has served as musical leader, teacher, community spokesperson, and spiritual advisory to people of all ages.  Most of all, through song, she showed her passion for life and her faith in God.”

While many of us know her as Reverend Mother who can be heard weekday on WEXL AM, Reverend is also known as a woman committed to family, the community and the gospel.

You won’t want to miss this exciting event, seats are limited.  The Church is located at 8701 West Eight Mile Road, three blocks east of Wyoming in Detroit.  Inquiries can be made by calling 313.342.4656.  Anthony J. Ballah, Pastor.
