Attend via live stream at bit.ly/TTTI-Sanctuary, on our Roku channel (TTTI SANCTUARY), Facebook Live, or YouTube Live.
We will come together for a special service as we pray with our minds, hearts, and feet. We will celebrate and commemorate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and honor his message of peace and tolerance among all people. We will have themed music, poetry, and readings that raise awareness of the continued work to be done in our community and beyond.
We will welcome Pastor Richard Gibson as our guest speaker for this special service. He has served as Pastor of Elizabeth Baptist Church (“EBC”) in Garden Valley and Slavic Village for 18 years. EBC is very active in the community by providing education, food, clothing, counseling, and a homeless shelter known as The Haven Home.

Pastor Gibson worked as an attorney with the law firms of Squire Sanders, and Ulmer Berne. He also has significant work experience with a Fortune 100 company. He has been an adjunct professor at Case Law School. Pastor Gibson has studied at Yale University, Case Law School, Weatherhead School of Management, Oxford University in England, Syracuse University in Italy, and Ashland Theological Seminary. Pastor Gibson is thankful for his wife and children, and credits God for his blessings. He was also appointed as a member of Cleveland Mayor Justin Bibb’s transition team.
