Men of the Covenant
Rev. Elbert McGowan

Men, our second meeting of the Men of the Covenant is this Thursday (October 1). We continue with our theme for the fall, "A Man After God's Own Heart." This month Rev. Elbert McGowan, Reformed University Fellowship Minister at Jackson State University, will be speaking on the always pertinent topic of repentance.

Elbert is a native of Jackson, MS. He graduated from Alabama A&M University with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. After working for several years, Elbert sensed the call of God to enter full time Christian ministry. In answer to this call, Elbert returned to Jackson to attend Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS), where he earned a Master of Divinity degree. In his final year of seminary, the Lord opened up the opportunity for Elbert to begin a new work with RUF on the campus of Jackson State. He has been serving the Lord with RUF at Jackson State for three years. Elbert is married to his lovely wife Karen. They have two children, Charis and Trip

Reservations are not required for the Men of the Covenant Luncheon. The cost of the lunch is $5 and will be collected at the door. If you have any questions, please contact Shannon Craft at 601-326-9243 or
