Alfred Street Baptist Church Awards Gift to Seniors

Alfred Street Baptist Church

Rev. Dr. Howard-John Wesley, pastor of Alfred Street Baptist Church (ASBC) in Alexandria, Virginia, presented Howard University with a $100,000 gift to cover the outstanding tuition and fee balances of 34 graduating seniors. Wesley announced the contribution during a special service at the Andrew Rankin Memorial Chapel.

Ministers and staff of ASBC joined the Office of Financial Aid to surprise and present the seniors with the good news. The ASBC congregation raised the funds for the contribution during Seek 2019, a church-wide physical, financial, and social media fast that lasted throughout the month of January.

The church is a long-time supporter of the HBCU community and holds an annual HBCU festival one of the largest in the country where students and parents can meet with college representatives and attend seminars.




“Connecting You to HU” is our goal. Howard alumni truly define this university and reinforce the powerful legacy that is our alma mater.
