Greetings Educators & Alumni,

The members of the Education Ministry of Turner Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church would like to extend an invitation to participate in our 7th annual College Fair on Saturday, October 22, 2016 from Noon – 3:00 pm, at the Cathedral of Turner Chapel A.M.E. Church in Marietta, GA.  We have historically had an extremely successful event with as many as over 1,200 students and parents from all over metro Atlanta, and surrounding areas and states in attendance.  We anticipate and even better event in 2016! The word is out and the participants are already confirming their attendance!  Please confirm your attendance as soon as possible as space is already limited.

Turner Chapel AME is the largest majority African American church in Cobb County, with a membership base of over 6,000. Our Senior Pastor, Rev. Dr. Kenneth E. Marcus, stresses to our students the importance of education, and supports the Education Ministry as we discover creative methods to encourage students to aim high and achieve.  Most of the students in our congregation attend college many of which are on full academic scholarships. 

We will publicize the fair throughout Georgia and surrounding states in various media including radio, newspaper, e-mail blast, social media networks, PTA meetings, athletic events, club meetings, churches, Greek, civic and community organizations.  Our target audience is high school students (primarily sophomores, juniors and seniors) in both public and private schools throughout the area.

Due to limited space and the tremendous response we have experienced in previous years we strongly urge you to confirm your attendance as soon as possible via email at

Upon confirmation, please notify us of any specific needs you may have that are not already accommodated in the information listed below.  We also encourage you to join us for our “College Game Day Worship Experience” at 9:30am on Sunday, October 23, 2016.  Members, visitors and friends are encouraged to wear college spirit wear and/or fraternity and sorority paraphernalia.  We hope that you are able to join us for worship service.

Ø  One 6 ft. table (with black table cover) and 2 chairs (Based on the enormous turnout last year, we suggest that you may want to consider at least two representatives)
