Alfred Street Baptist Church Donates $25,000 to Hampton University to Support Campus Ministries

By: Hampton University

On Saturday, July 2, Hampton University President, Darrell K. Williams and First Lady Myra Richardson Williams received their first donation since returning to their ‘Home by the Sea’ from Rev. Dr. Howard-John Wesley, senior pastor of their home church, the historic Alfred Street Baptist Church in Alexandria. 

“I extend my personal and heartfelt thanks to Rev. Dr. Howard-John Wesley and the entire Alfred Street Baptist Church congregation for this wonderful contribution,” said President Williams. “On behalf of Hampton University, Myra and I cannot thank you enough for this very generous contribution, which will be used to support Hampton University campus ministries.”

Hampton University is no stranger to the congregation at Alfred Street Baptist Church. Several Hampton alumni and fellow members of the church joined President Williams and the First Lady for the check presentation ceremony. Additionally, Rev. Dr. Howard-John Wesley is a regular attendee of the annual Hampton University Ministers’ Conference (HUMC).  

“As an annual participant in the HUMC, Rev. Dr. Howard-John Wesley knows what this contribution means to the spiritual development of our students and our community,” said President Williams.
