AdventWord 2019: 5. Raise
Lift every voice and sing, till earth and heaven ring … at Voorhees College and Saint Augustine’s University, two Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) founded by The Episcopal Church, voices are raised this season in celebration of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Why support our Episcopal HBCUs?
Voorhees College and Saint Augustine’s provide an excellent liberal arts education to thousands of students, the majority of whom come from low-income households, and over 40% of whom are the first in their families to attend a four-year college. The gospel work of education and emancipation, evangelism and formation, reconciliation and commitment to a just and humane society and world is happening at these schools! Yet in today’s economic and political climate HBCUs increasingly struggle to secure the funds they need to maintain their facilities, retain excellent faculty, and provide much-needed student financial aid.
You can help raise up young leaders from these HBCUs. To learn more, visit https://episcopalchurch.org/development/HBCU.
