Congratulations to church delegates who were chosen to represent their church at the P.U.L.S.E. “33rd Annual Convention.” We look forward to celebrating PULSE’s long and successful history. We will discuss important business and review our accomplishments of the past year. Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Rudolph “Rudy” Moise, a successful and committed doctor and community leader.

This year’s convention will be held, Saturday, May 17 at the Zion Hope MBC, located at 5129 NW 17th Avenue. Rev. Dr. Edward Mitchell is the pastor and our theme is “Putting On The Whole Armor of God and Reclaiming The Vision Through Economic Empowerment.” Registration will be held 9 a.m. and ends at 12 p.m. Again, we are looking forward to having one of our most successful conventions which commemorates Thirty-33 years of excellence, as we have sought to empower the “powerless” through community organizing.
