A church-wide evening with Susan Sparks
Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 6:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall
Open Table transforms into a comedy club as Covenant welcomes Susan Sparks, a trial lawyer turned standup comedian and Baptist minister. Susan is America’s only female comedian with a pulpit. She's the senior pastor at historic Madison Avenue Baptist Church in New York City.
After ten years as a lawyer moonlighting as a standup, she left her practice and spent two years on a solo trip around the world, including working with Mother Teresa’s mission in Calcutta, climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and driving the Alaska Highway.
Upon returning home, she entered Union Theological Seminary in New York City where she earned a Master of Divinity and wrote an honors thesis on humor and religion. In May 2007, Susan was installed as MABC’s 15th Senior Minister and the first woman in its 170-year history.
