Ten years ago, Ed Lewis, Executive Director of CE National, got a call from Evelyn Tyson. The Third Brethren Church in downtown Philadelphia was closing, and Evelyn asked Ed if CE National could use the buildings.
At the time, CE National was looking at Chicago for an urban ministry training center. But with the offer of the Third Brethren’s buildings in Philadelphia, God was directing CE National to the east and the Urban Hope Training Center was born.
A 10-year anniversary celebration is planned for Saturday, November 8, from 6:30-8:00 pm at the church building, 210 E. Tioga Street. All who have been a part of Urban Hope Training Center are invited to come celebrate what God has done and is going to do in the next 10 years and beyond.
