Mount Zion Miracle Station Celebrates 30 Years

Story by Jimmie Gibson

The Mount Zion Miracle Station church in Wilmington, Del., recently celebrated its 30th anniversary. Guest speaker Jimmie Gibson, who served as pastor from 2019–2021, presented the message. Carlos McConico, current pastor, presented a plaque to Yolanda Wise-Wesley (pictured), an elder and the lone charter member.

Mount Zion has various ministries for church and community members. One is a vibrant van ministry in which volunteers take church members to various appointments and outings as needed. The church also provides transportation to students at the Sharon Temple Adventist School in North Wilmington, Del. The church currently operates a food pantry on the third Sabbath of every month. Community members and families can either pick up items at the church or have them delivered to their homes.

Under the pastoral leadership of Melvyn Hayden, II, who served from 2015–2022, the church estab- lished the “Temple Plan.” This plan sponsors most, if not all, of the tuition needs for students who attend Sharon Temple. Currently, there are 10 children sponsored. The church also established the Melvyn and Denise Hayden Scholarship in 2022 to be awarded to a worthy student. As a result of this partnership with Sharon Temple, 10 individuals have been baptized.

During the service, Richard Reeves, who pastored from 2006–2014, and his wife, Sheryl, shared warm reflections. Reeves was the catalyst for the church moving to its current location in 2006.

Prayerfully, Mount Zion is looking forward to carrying on its legacy of service to the community.

“I pray that the blessings of God on Mount Zion Miracle Station continue to flow from the ‘Mount’ to all of Delaware and the world,” shares McConico.
