A more than two decades old faith-based organization is shedding a light on the positive contributions of influential African-Americans

Two women who have made a hugely positive impact on the African-American community will be honored this year by The Gospel Heritage Foundation.

The special event, which is part of the International Worship Summit (IWC), hosted by Founder, Dr. Teresa Hairston, will take place in Houston, TX.

Some of the biggest names in ministry and gospel music will converge upon James W.E. Dixon’s Community of Faith Church beginning Thursday, Feb. 18 through Saturday, Feb. 20.

“We are excited about the partnering with Dr. Teresa Hairston and the Gospel Heritage Foundation,” Dixon told Click2Houston.

Adams, 54, is a GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, author and host of the nationally syndicated Yolanda Adams Morning Show. She uses her influence to educate, uplift and encourage her largely African-American base to live a healthy lifestyle by making better daily choices.

Jackson Lee, 66, one of America’s most respected politicians, is a U.S. Representative for Texas’s 18th congressional district. Serving since 1995, she has greatly impacted inner-city Houston and advocated for the civil rights of minorities and the poor across the nation.

According to Hairston, it is her goal for conference-goers to “witness a culturally enriching community event and gain a deeper understanding of the phenomenal contributions made by African Americans.”

Additionally, the 22-year-old educational organization, will pay tribute to recording artist and media personality Dr. Bobby Jones, and composer Mike McCkay at the event.

Other guests include, Bishop Noel Jones, Bishop Paul S. Morton, Bishop Hezekiah Walker, and more.
