Fifty Years By Faith

Presented by GSM UPLIFT

A Glorious Celebration of Past & Present

Dear Friend of Greater St. Matthew Baptist Church:

The Greater St. Matthew Baptist Church was established in September 1968 by our founder, Pastor Gusta Booker. Over the past 50 years of Service by Faith, this great leader and his ministry teams have created an outstanding legacy that has positively impacted thousands of community citizens. They have changed lives weekly in two major locations in the City of Houston by providing excellence in ministry, countless spiritual milestones, and transformational leadership.

As we launch our Pastor’s 50th anniversary, “50 Years by Faith, A Glorious Celebration of Past and Future,” we are pleased to extend to our corporate friends a wonderful opportunity to share in this event in a meaningful way. We have planned an exciting program of commemorations and community-based activities for the entire year which will culminate in our gala 50th Anniversary Celebration.

On Saturday, November 17, 2018, we will host the 50th Anniversary Celebration at the beautiful Hilton Americas Ballroom at 7:00 pm with over 800 expected attendees representing a diverse cross-section of State and City officials, Community, Ecumenical and Business leaders, major ministries and church members from all walks of life. We invite you to consider participating as a sponsor of this historic 50th Anniversary event.

Through your sponsorship, you will benefit from continuous community-wide exposure in all of our media campaigns, church events and promotional efforts directed toward our vast audiences. The attached package details the several options for you to partner with us in reaching those who will be blessed by and favorably respond to your corporate support.We appreciate your time and consideration of this request.

In God’s Service,
