Inland Empire pastors were treated to breakfast on Good Friday as part of The Black Voice News and Premier Service Banks appreciation of their service to the community, partnership with the Black Press, and commitment to God's work.
During the appreciation ceremony, pastors from various denominations including Seventh-day Adventists, Missionary Baptist, African Methodist Episcopal, Non-Denominational and Church of God in Christ were informed of partnership opportunities with The Black Voice News.
The economic power of the church within the Black community positions the church not only as a house of worship, but an economic leader within the community. A survey conducted at the beginning of the program with results given toward the end, revealed that among the 16 churches who participated, estimated bank deposits totaled close to $700,000 per month.
This estimated power stated, Co-Publisher Hardy Brown, "is just evidence of the economic power of the Black Church in our community."
Cal Poly Pomona student and BVN intern Kaylen Coney stated of the event that, "it was informative and nice."
The Black Voice News plans for the pastor's appreciation breakfast to be an annual event. For more information, contact BVN at 951.682.6070.
