PASTOR AND DAUGHTER RECEIVE VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR AWARD

If you have ever been to Sojourner Truth Ministries, then there is a pretty good chance you have met and worked with Pastor Derek Smith, and his daughter Derecia Bailey.  Derek is the husband, and Derecia the daughter, of the STM Director Pastor Velinda Webb-Smith.  The three of them spend many hours a day, seven days a week, to make STM the successful ministry that it has become.

SVOTYPastor Derek and Derecia were co-awarded the Sojourner Truth Ministries’ Volunteer of the Year at the 2015 Annual Appreciation Banquet and Board Meeting held Sunday night November 15th at the STM church on High Street in Williamsport. Both father and daughter have volunteered endless hours to this ministry helping the disenfranchised, the homeless, and lonely of any age or culture in the local Williamsport and Lycoming County area.
