This year’s banquet program at Mario’s Restaurant on May 24th was educational and inspiring from beginning to end. Thankfully Justin Ortiz, Executive Director and Producer at Generation News, graciously volunteered to document the event. Here are some clips from his video for you to be able enjoy the evening again if you attended or view for the first time to share our experience if you weren’t able to be with us this year.

We start with Steve Hogan, Master of Ceremonies, introducing Dee Skelton who presented the ministry of Embracing Options and Doug Smith who presented Rochester Youth Outreach.

Susan Morehouse and Michelle Preston completed the ministry profiles by presenting the work of the Arnett Block Association and His Branches Health Services.

Doug and Cynthia Smith inspired us with special music, less than two weeks after getting married!

Dr. Morehouse presented an overview of how the ministries of His Branches work together with churches and other ministries to build God’s Kingdom in Rochester, then introduced the evening’s guest speaker, Rev. James. L. Cherry, Sr, Pastor of Aenon Baptist Church in Rochester.

Our evening reached its peak when Dr. Cherry inspired us with a personal testimony about how the ministries of His Branches had influenced his life and then exhorted us all to be wholeheartedly “on assignment” in God’s Kingdom.

John Gramlich wrapped our banquet up with an engaging appeal, followed by an impassioned benediction by Pastor Sandra Felder.

Thanks to all who helped make our entire evening such a wonderful experience! We can hardly wait for next year’s Banquet to come!
