The Local Take Talks Healthy Churches 2020

Nov 1, 2017

I spoke with Dr. Pernessa Seele, founder and CEO of The Balm In Gilead, Inc. a non-profit organization that has provided technical support to faith institutions in the USA and Africa. Dr. Seele is a graduate of Clark Atlanta University and she launched Healthy Churches 2020 an initiative of her non-profit to engage with the faith community to promote healthy outcomes. 

The 4th annual Healthy Churches 2020 Conference will take place November 14th - 17th in Hilton Head, SC.

Don’t forget to check out the May 20 edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry. In this week’s show, I got a chance to catch up with music executive Keinon Johnson about his new position as Vice President of Urban Promotions at Interscope Records. He also talked about his fashion brand “Never Sold Dope.”  

 

This week in celebration of the Holiday Season we speak with members of the faith community about the challenging times we find ourselves in and the role of faith in our society today.
