The Center for Urban Biblical Ministry held its 25th Annual Scholarship Concert at East Minster Presbyterian Church, located at 250 Highland Ave. in East Liberty, to benefit new students’ financial aid for books and educational materials.
The concert was hosted by Bishop Loran Mann, pastor of Pentecostal Temple COGIC also in East Liberty. The concert presented by the class of 2013, was a highly spirited gospel fest featuring some of the finest talent in Pittsburgh.
The CUBM has partnered with Geneva College to provide an education specifically suited for students heeding Christ’s call to proclaim and live the Gospel in their communities.
The concert was performed by Evangelist Barbara Mann & The Pentecostal COGIC Choir, Erica Day, David Bowens & The Group One Ministry, Katrina Haldren, Keisha Sheffie and Gospel recording artist James Ziegler, all of Pittsburgh. The goal of this event was to reach an offering of $1,500, which was achieved by the end of the concert.
