Project Description

Union Chapel AME Church (Newark)

The Union Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church was founded in 1917 by a group of faithful men and women, many whom were from Blakely, Georgia who had migrated to Newark, NJ; in order to take advantage of greater socio-economic opportunities. The congregation began as a Sunday School which met in the home of Mary B. Austin on Livingston Street in Newark. Rev Anthony Mitchell Sr. was appointed during the Fall Convocation of 2008 and was ordained an Itinerant Elder at the 2009 New Jersey Annual Conference by Bishop R. F. Norris. Rev. Mitchell continues to provide the necessary leadership that U C so desires. www.unionchapelame.org
