On Faith: Local

Archbishop Alfred Owens may be presiding over the 82nd International Convocation of the Greater Mount Calvary Holy Church, but opening night of the convention belonged to his wife, Co-Pastor Susie Owens and several thousand ladies who were dressed in white and celebrating in the name of the Lord.

But then evangelist Joyce L. Rodgers of Carrollton, Texas took over. Dressed in an all black robe, it took Rodgers less than a minute to take off with a high octane version of the story about Paul and Silas found in the book of Acts. Rodgers sermon was titles, “It’s Almost Midnight.”

Bishop Noel Jones, a national televangelist from the City of Refuge in Los Angeles, preached Thursday at the event, which is being held at the Greater Mount Calvary Holy Church in Northeast. The theme of the confab, which has included activities and workshops through the week, is, “It’s a Family Affair.”
