I had the pleasure of attending his cathedral when he first opened it many years ago on the cusp of Pert Amboy, New Jersey. Today in 2014, this man has one church but now in three (3) locations; Perth Amboy, Asbury Park and Plainfield, NJ.
He heralds from East Orange, New Jersey growing up in Scotch Plains, Bishop Donald Hilliard (pictured above) is senior pastor of Cathedral International in Perth Amboy, New Jersey and the published author of fourteen self-help and inspirational books (Somebody Say Yes, A Safe Harbor Begins @ Home, How Daddy Can Make A Difference, After The Fall: Resurrecting Your Life From Shame, Disgrace and Guilt, Journal Your Journey: This Too Will Pass, 55 And Counting.
Founder and CEO of the Cathedral Community Development Corporation (CCDC), an umbrella organization providing a variety of outreach services to the local community in Perth Amboy, including mental health support, a library, a banquet center and a creative dance center, Bishop Hilliard has also received numerous awards and citations for his efforts, both inside the church and beyond.
In light of the Ferguson, Missouri killing of Micheal Brown and countless others, join me tonight at 8:00 PM on “Conversations Of A Sistah“ via “Conversations Live” as I speak with Bishop Hilliard regarding “the state of the black man“.
See you on the air!
