Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I am thrilled to announce that the Reverend Elijah R. Zehyoue has joined the New Baptist Covenant team as our Director of Programs and Communication. Elijah Zehyoue is a gifted and compassionate minister who will bring wonderful insight and energy to the NBC movement.
As a part of his new role, the Rev. Zehyoue will be coordinating events and helping us tell our story. He’ll also be in charge of our social media accounts, so make sure you’re following us on Twitter @NewBaptCovenant and at FB.com/NewBaptistCovenant for the latest updates.
Having fled with his family at the age of two from the Liberian Civil War with the help of a pastor, the Reverend Elijah R. Zehyoue has devoted much of his life to working to close the racial divide in our country and especially in our churches. The Rev. Zehyoue earned his undergraduate degree from Morehouse College and followed it with a Master of Divinity from the University of Chicago.
The Rev. Zehyoue is an ordained Baptist minister. He most recently served at Calvary Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., where he regularly preached, taught Sunday School and led the church’s mission and social justice initiatives. Prior to serving at Calvary, the Rev. Zehyoue served as associate pastor for youth at University Church Chicago.
I hope you’ll all join me in welcoming him to the team!
Your sister in Christ,
