MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Church of God in Christ (COGIC) award-winning e-magazine, The Whole Truth (TWT) reveals the names of its 40 Under 40 Award recipients.
The Whole Truth magazine is excited to award and recognize 40 young, dynamic leaders who are praying, praising, learning, volunteering, texting and tweeting their way to success in business, church and community. We are more than proud of each of their vast accomplishments and TWT is delighted to acknowledge the contributions of each of the 40 Under 40 recipients through this unique award mechanism.
Robert Coleman, Jr. the Managing Editor of TWT and COGIC’s Public Relations Director says, “The 2019 TWT 40 Under 40 Awards provides an opportunity to highlight and showcase some of the incredible young adults who are making a difference in their communities around the country.” He went on to say, “The 2019 recipient list includes a state representative, doctors, doctoral and master’s degree holders, pastors, entrepreneurs, musicians, a former juvenile corrections officer, and more.”
“With over 6 million members globally, it’s difficult for many of us to realize the greatness that is occurring outside of our own sphere of churches, jurisdictions and communities,” stated April Quillen, Editor of The Whole Truth. “40 Under 40 is only a snapshot of the amazing accomplishments flowing throughout our denomination among some truly phenomenal young adults.
