For the last 20 years the Mt. Nebo Voice of Hope Outreach Ministry has sponsored an annual banquet to recognize unsung heroes. On Sunday, March 3, 2024, the annual Black History Celebration – “Stepping Out in Faith” – was held at the Premiere Banquet Complex to honor this year’s “Silent Soldiers.”

The annual banquet helps to support the mission of the Voice of Hope Ministry which provides a host of community services such as: Radio Outreach; Adopt a Haircut Ministries at Poor Clark’s Barbershop (free haircuts for youth); Adopt a Belt Outreach Ministries; Coat Give-Away (partnering with Macy’s Department Store); Good Friday Ham Give-Away; Back to School Give-Away and the weekly broadcast on NOW Network.

This year’s banquet program began, as usual, with host Larry Jones introducing himself and those of note in attendance. Guest were welcomed by Councilwoman Cerssandra McPherson who is part of the organizing team for the banquet.

The Mt. Nebo Praise Team offered a selection and the invocation was given by Bishop Christopher Rowell, pastor of The Refreshing Place.

After dinner, Mt. Nebo First Lady Debra Brock sang before this year’s honorees, the Silent Soldiers, were officially recognized.

This year’s honorees are: Min. Onevia Allen, Terry Crosby, Albert Earl, Neail and Antoinette Goodloe, Louis Guilford, Nadine Hadley, Pastor Marquisa Horton, Steven and Caroline Lewis, Earl Mack, Miss Madison McCain, Ambrea Mikolajczyk, Elisha Mitchell, Vanessa Owens, Mother Cordelia Roberts Lady Tina Talbert, Paula Tucker, Elder Darryl Turner.
