The Ebenezer A.M.E. Church Poetry Ministry, whose members are known as the Anointed P.E.N.S. (Poets Empowered to Nurture Souls) was established in 2003. Since then, The Anointed P.E.N.S. have ministered at Ebenezer and throughout the community, presenting poetry, hosting poetry workshops, Poetry & Praise services and open mic events. Services and celebrations are presented at area churches, nursing homes, shelters, schools, juvenile and community centers throughout the region. Membership in The Anointed P.E.N.S. is open to members of the church and poets in the community.
To the question, "Why poetry?" the response is given: "We share a love for God which we share through convicted hearts, receptive ears and a spirit that leads us to write poetry." The Poetry Ministry meets monthly from 6:00 pm until 8:30 pm on 3rd Fridays (except in July & August) and hosts quarterly Poetry & Praise Open Mic services (February, April, September and November).
As one of our Ebenezer AME Christian education ministries, the SAT Preparation ministry prepares college-bound students to successfully take the SAT exam through both computer-based and live instruction.
The Scholarship Ministry administers the church's scholarship program by collecting and reviewing the church's two scholarship programs: The Benjamin Tanner Scholarships and the Richard Allen Scholarships. This ministry reviews the received scholarship applications, makes recommendations and awards the scholarships on Scholarship Sunday.
The Tutorial Ministry assists students in their studies. Volunteers assist students from Elementary to High School in subjects such as math, English and science.
