One Million Dollars Donated to Katrina Victims

Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 14, 2005

On Wednesday, October 19, 2005, Bishop Neil C. Ellis of Nassau, Bahamas will present a one million dollar check to Bishop Paul S. Morton of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship for victims of Hurricane Katrina. A multi-cultural and multi-denominational organization, the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship was founded under the leadership of Bishop Paul S. Morton in 1993. The event will take place during a press conference at 2:00 PM at the DoubleTree Hotel in Houston. At the Conference, Bishop Joseph Simmons will describe the role of the Full Gospel Economic Development Corporation and Bishop Morton will explain the four-point plan for distribution of the donation. Over 0,000 in relief supplies have been previously distributed to victims of Katrina through the Full Gospel Baptist Fellowship.

The Pastor of Mount Tabor, a 7,000 member church, Bishop Ellis is the third presiding Bishop of Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship. An internationally acclaimed speaker, he is also the author of nine books including, “The Power of the Blood” and “Living in Your Promised Land.” Bishop Ellis studied at the New York School of Theology, earning a Master’s Degree in Pastoral Ministries.

Since inception, the Full Gospel Baptist Fellowship has expanded and now has headquarters in the United States, Bahamas, Canada, Great Britain, Germany, Africa, Asia, India and Japan. The Fellowship offices in New Orleans were significantly damaged and are now uninhabitable. As a result of this catastrophe and the many tragedies witnessed by hurricane evacuees from their New Orleans congregations, the Full Gospel Fellowship is taking an active role in supporting and rebuilding the lives and communities of those devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Currently the largest growing African American denominational fellowship in the world, Full Gospel seeks to be heard as the “Faith Voice of Katrina.”

The DoubleTree Hotel is located in Houston, Texas at 400 Dallas Street. For more information, call Jan Norris at 713-819-6775 or email him at
