Pastor Henry Washington Graduates from American Baptist Seminary of the West




Pastor Henry Washington, pastor of The Garden of Peace Ministries in Richmond, recently graduated from the American Baptist Seminary of the West (ABSW) receiving two master’s degrees, one in Community Leadership and the other in Divinity.


Along with his two degrees, Pastor Washington received the Robert B. Laurin Scholarship Prize (Old Testament Scholarship) and the Jessie Day Drexler Award, awarded for the highest Grade Point Average. He also received the Dean’s Scholarship from the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) for the program that will start in the fall.


ABSW, established in 1871, is a part of the GTU which is a consortium of nine different seminaries across different faith traditions.


East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
