Brookins-Kirkland Community AME Church aims to energize believers during its upcoming revival that opens on Wednesday, Sept. 19, and continues through Friday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m.
The three services will be held in the BKCAME edifice located at 3719 W. Slauson Ave., in Los Angeles. The theme is “It’s Time to Pray and Seek God’s Face: Lord, Heal the Land” based on 2 Chronicles 7:14.
According to Pastor Mary S. Minor, a trio of powerful preachers will bring the message each night to encourage and uplift attendees, especially those facing tough challenges in their daily lives.
“We invite everyone seeking peace, relief and rejuvenation to come and hear Rev. Dr. Rosalynn K. Brookins, Rev. Darryl E. Walker and Rev. Roderick O. Walker as they share God’s word to help you live victorious in Christ,” said Pastor Minor.
The Rev. Dr. Brookins, who leads Walker Temple AME Church, will preach on Sept. 19. The wife of the late Bishop H.H. Brookins, she became the first AME episcopal supervisor to serve as a pastor with her appointment in 2013. Her education includes a B.A. degree from Philander Smith College, a Master’s degree from National University, a Master’s of Divinity degree from San Francisco Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Payne Theological Seminary.
The Rev. Darryl Walker, who will deliver the sermon on Sept. 20, led several AME churches before his appointment to New Philadelphia AME Church in 2010. A native of Denver, CO, he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Theology and Master’s of Divinity degree. His community service includes being an executive board member of the Foundation for Hospices in Sub-Saharan Africa, Inc., and CEO of the Henry McNeal Turner Early Learning Center in Oxon Hills, MD.
The Rev. Roderick Walker will bring the message on Sept. 21. He accepted his call to preach shortly before graduating from L.A.’s Manual Arts High School. After training in various ministerial capacities at Victory Baptist Church, he organized Tabernacle of Praise Baptist Church in 1997 where he continues to serve as pastor. Also, he is the first vice president of the Congress of Christian Education and the first vice moderator of the Providence District Baptist Association.
