BREAKFAST WITH THE PASTOR

Location: 2nd Level Church Gymnasium
Breakfast Keynote Speaker, Dr. Derrick Pitts
Dr. Derrick Pitts serves as NASA Solar System Ambassador, Chief Astronomer and Planetarium Programs Director, The Franklin Institute Science Museum
We thank Dr. Derrick Pitts, Franklin Institute Astronomer for recently serving as our inaugural Breakfast with the Pastor keynote speaker. Contrary to the prevailing conviction he eloquently informed us that faith and science are not mutually exclusive. It was Dr. Pitts view that by faith we believe in God and His creation. Yet science is a body of scientific facts that serve as tools for the study of this world. From discussions of black holes, life on Mars, the morning star Venus, Pultonians to distant galaxies, Dr. Pitts was absolutely awesome!

Biography of Ambassador Charles R. Stith
Ambassador Charles R. Stith is an African-American educator, author and politician. He established and currently directs Boston University's African Presidential Center. Prior to assuming his present position as the Director of the African Presidential Center at Boston University, Ambassador Charles R. Stith presented his Letter of Credence as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States to the United Republic of Tanzania in September 1998.
Ambassador Stith has an appointment on the Faculty of the Boston University Department of International Relations, and presently teaches a course on Africa and Globalization. He is on the Advisory Committee of the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Council of American Ambassadors. Ambassador Stith is the author of For Such a Time as This: African Leadership Challenges (APARC Press, 2008) and Political Religion (Abingdon Press, 1995).
He is also the Senior Editor of the annual African Leaders State of Africa Report and author of many articles, which have appeared in such publications as the African Business Magazine, Wall Street Journal, Denver Post, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Boston Globe, the Boston Herald, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, New York Times, and the Chicago Sun Times. Ambassador Stith is a graduate of Baker University, the Interdenominational Theological Center’s Gammon Theological Seminary in Atlanta, and Harvard University Divinity School (Th.M).
He is the founder and former National President of the Organization for a New Equality (O.N.E.), which focuses on expanding economic opportunities for minorities and women. Most notably during his tenure at O.N.E., he helped negotiate and broker the first comprehensive community reinvestment agreement in the country. The agreement committed Boston financial institutions to $500 million in mortgage and commercial lending to low- and moderate-income and minority communities in Massachusetts.
He later served on the CRA Regulatory Agency Working Group, chaired by then Comptroller of the Currency Eugene Ludwig. He was one of the architects of the regulations redefining the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which has resulted in nearly $2 trillion in credit and capital for low- and moderate-income communities and communities of color. Prior to heading O.N.E., he was the Senior Minister of the historic Union United Methodist Church in Boston. He was an appointee of then Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.
He is the recipient of honorary doctorates from the University of South Carolina, Elizabeth City University, Clark Atlanta University, and Baker University. In addition to his role as a civic, political, and business leader, he is also recognized as one of the world’s foremost authorities on current political and economic trends in Africa.
This is not merely a men and boys event. We cordially invite you and your entire family and friends to come out and share in Men's Weekend at Zion. Join us as we come together for worship, to be armed with a word of information for personal inspiration.
This year, we will also recognize several outstanding men of the church and community. Come and fellowship with us. Catch up with old friends and press the flesh, spread the peace and pass the joy to the glory of God!
