54th Annual Church Anniversary Newsletter

Our celebration of our 54th annual anniversary will begin on two nights of revival on Thursday July 11th and Friday July 12th at 7:30pm.

Our dynamic speaker will be Rev. Darrell Armstrong, Pastor of the Shiloh Baptist Church in Trenton, New Jersey

The Rev. Darrell L. Armstrong is a native of South (Central) Los Angeles, California where he was born and raised. He is married to the former Melanie L. Pinkney, Esq., who is the Executive Director of the Division of Civil Rights and Affirmative Action for the NJ-Department of Transportation. They are the proud parents of Amaris Kayla (7-years) and Daniel LaRue (5-years).

The Rev. Armstrong is in his 12th year of service as the pastor of the historic Shiloh Baptist Church of Trenton, NJ. Shiloh is a thriving community of faith rooted in a worship tradition which represents the richness of the African diaspora. He is only the church's third pastor in the last 108 years!!! Under his leadership, Shiloh has more than tripled its budget to $1.7M and nearly tripled its membership to 2,200+ (approximately 500+families).

His policy training at Stanford University (BA in Public Policy), theological training at Princeton Theological Seminary (M.Div.), and therapeutic/clinical training at The College of New Jersey (Ed.S. in marriage & family therapy) have uniquely prepared the Rev. Armstrong to be a respected voice in the national and international child welfare/family strengthening communities.

In May of 2010, he was chosen to be the 1st non-Presbyterian member of the Princeton Seminary Board of Trustees in its 200-year history (1812-2012).

Most recently, in January, 2012, he was chosen by Black Village Magazine as one of NJ's "50 Most Powerful Blacks!"

Our anniversary will culminate with a full day of services of Sunday July 14th with dynamic speakers and our culmination service at 3:30pm
