From the President
For 43 years, Memphis Inter-Denominational Fellowship, Incorporated (MID Fellowship) has been a champion for youth, the marginalized, education and race relations through its longstanding programs and services. Additionally, MID Fellowship honors the legacy of its founder, Evangelist Nettie B. Rogers, known as a history maker in the ministry who worked untiringly and helped to change convention and conservatism for many.
Today, MID Fellowship continues the legacy and holds high the banner of making the community a better place for the common good through its signature program, Back to Church School CrusadeSM.
We invite you to join this national faith-based movement and support and recognize Sunday, June 5, 2011 as National Church School Day and June 5 – July 30, 2011 as Back to Church School CrusadeSM months. Memphis and Shelby County and the State of Tennessee have supported this movement since1970. We ask you to get involved and request your local and state governments to issue proclamations and resolutions, respectively, declaring National Church School Day on June 5, 2011 and June 5-July 30, 2011 as Back to Church School CrusadeSM months. Encourage youth to get involved in positive activities in churches, mosques, temples and youth organizations. This website tells more of MID Fellowship’s programs and services and how places of worship and organizations can become involved. It includes the Proclamation from the Memphis and Shelby County mayors and the Resolution from the Tennessee State House of Representatives for your perusal. You are asked to use the proclamation and resolution as models in requesting the support of your local and state governments.
We hope that you, too, will see this as a crucial and core need in the development and preservation of our youth and partner with us by supporting this faith-based national crusade and registering as a partner. You will be helping to mobilize the faith community and neighborhoods across the United States as well as building spiritual and moral fiber in our youth, thereby producing stronger citizens and a better community.
In Christian love and fellowship,
Dr. Inetta F. Rogers
