A Howard C. Scharfe Fellowship Endowment Speaker Series
Each year through the Howard C. Scharfe Endowment, Shadyside Presbyterian Church supports pastors in their post-graduate studies for the benefit of the Church and for the glory of God. Through this generous gift, pastors and churches for decades have been blessed to grow in new ways. Our speaker series invites recent recipients to share over dinner and through worship about their studies and how they are practicing what they learn in their congregations.
Please join us for dinner at 6:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall, followed by vespers in the Chapel at 7:00 p.m., to learn about what God is up to in the Church and in the world! Please contact the church office to RSVP.
On Wednesday, January 8, 2020, we welcome Rev. Oghene’tega Violet Swann as our speaker. Rev. Swann was the founding and organizing pastor of Refreshing Springs Mission Church PC(USA) in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, which was Beaver-Butler Presbytery’s first African American congregation. Currently, she is working toward a Doctorate of Ministry with a focus on missional leadership from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.
