2019 Greene County Historical Society Spring Luncheon
Time & Location
About The Event
Join us at the 2019 Greene County Historical Society Spring Luncheon for a fascinating look at the important roles women have played in Pentecostal churches in Greene County since 1907, when Central Assembly of God was founded by Lillie Corum. When the Assemblies of God located its national office and publishing house in Springfield in 1918, the town became an international hub for the denomination, and women have key contributors, serving as pastors, educators, evangelists, and missionaries.
"Women Assemblies of God Ministers in Greene County, 1907-1980" will feature a panel including, Rev. Thelma Cook, Rev. Joyce Wells Booze, Rev. Ruthie Oberg, and Dr. David Ringer, who will shed light on the biases that many women in the church had to overcome in order to fulfill their calling.
The 2019 Spring Luncheon will be held at the Maranatha Village Community Center, 304 W. Bethany Dr., Springfield, MO 65803, from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. There will be a meet and greet beginning at 11:00 AM. Lunch will begin at 12:00 PM. And the presentation will be from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM. The presentation is free and open to the public. However, reservations for the luncheon, featuring delectables from Bambino's, are required at a cost of $15.
