The award was received by Pastors Assn. Exec. Director Pastor Harvey Burnett on Nov. 11th 2007 at Sigma’s 18th annual Scholarship Banquet dinner held at the Peoria hotel Pere Marquette.
Pastor Burnett cited the following in his acceptance speech:
- "Although we are not finished with our mission by any means, we are pleased that our community is now experiencing seemingly all time highs for volunteer and community service, and a desire for prayer through grass roots efforts such as the Peoria Prayer Furnace and the Peoria transformation Celebrations. Now, even our Mayor has confirmed the need for the Christian community to involve themselves in unified prayer and fellowship"~ 11/18/2007
Special thanks to Ms. Tamara Butler and everyone that recognized our efforts and made this award possible.
