St James Lutheran Church - Black History Month

Location: St James Evangelical Lutheran, Chicago, IL 60619, USA
Pastor William E. Hall, the newly installed senior pastor of St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church at 8000 S. Michigan, post this piece of local Black History on his Facebook page:


Black History Moment:

Rev. Robbin W. Skyles III

This is Rev. Robbin W. Skyles III, who founded St. James Lutheran Church, the first African-American Lutheran Congregation in the State of Illinois.

He was 29yrs old when he founded St. James, and can you guess where... I serve as pastor at the age of 29.

ST JAMES LUTHERAN!

Happy to be apart of Black History.
