- Fisher Chapel Vision Statement
Saturday, March 16, Fisher Chapel had the honor of holding the very first Evangelism Workshop with Rev. William Dudley as the facilitator. Ms. Mitzila Hogans coordinated the event at Fisher and the event. Ms. Hogans is the Christian Education Director at Fisher Chapel and the First Lady.
In preparation for the work shop, a combined effort of prayer, outreach, registration, proclamation, and preaching were provided by the pastor and a variety of church members. On Ash Wednesday, Sister Hogans initiated a 6 a.m. phone line where all were welcomed to pray and participate. The results went beyond what the church imagined.
Because of prayer, several people accepted Christ and many others came to become part of the ever-growing Fisher Chapel family. Revival has taken place at Fisher Chapel. There is a contagious love for one another and for the lost that is undeniable.
Because of prayer, there is a friendliness that in unmistakably genuine. The members are seeking new ways to share and give of their gifts and resources. God's Spirit embraces the worship experience, as people are encouraged to pray, praise, and proclaim the good news that Jesus saves. This is one of many transformations that God is doing at Fisher Chapel AME Zion Church.
The church's evangelical vision statement says it best, "…a church for all people who want to experience God's welcome; understand God's word; and join in God's work." Rev. William Hogans is the proud pastor of this church. He invites anyone to come and see the renewed and revived Fisher Chapel AME Zion church.
