On November 2 we will be 46 years young!

On Wednesday, November 2, 2016, First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. will have a dual celebration: the 46th anniversary  and the birthday of its founder, the renowned Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr.

The First Community Interfaith Institute Inc was developed with the concept of the animation of Doology, a discipline developed by Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr, which highlights the teachings of his grandmother, Madam Martha McMiller Jordan.

On November 2, 1970 Minister Evans, then a first year graduate student at Colgate Rochester Divinity School, founded First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. on his 25th birthday in his on-campus apartment. That small gathering of people on November 2, 1970 expanded to its present day home in the SouthWedge. Minister Evans has become an influential leader in Rochester's black community in the past forty six years.

The public is invited to hear Minister Evans' lecture at 5:30 PM on November 2 on the topic "A Grandmother's Teaching and a Wife's LoveThe Making of a Quiet Warrior."

Below are some memorable moments from our special fundraiser on September 23, "Minister Akilah Ife's Cultural Extravaganza."
