Evangel University will observe Black History Week with guest speaker Bishop Edward Peecher, founder of Chicago Embassy Church.

Peecher will speak at 10 a.m. Tuesday and Thursday at Evangel's chapel auditorium.
There is no charge for admission, and the public is invited to attend.
Peecher was born and raised on Chicago's South Side, in the Ida B. Wells housing projects and in the Englewood community. Moved by the civil rights struggle in the 1960s, he joined the Black Panther Party. Disillusioned after his friend, Jake Winters, was killed in a shootout with the Chicago police, he disconnected from the revolution and went to work for AT&T.
In 1973, at 23, Peecher became a Christian. He completed his biblical studies at Moody Bible Institute evening school while he progressed through the ranks at AT&T. He eventually became an account executive responsible for selling large communications systems to Fortune 500 companies and government entities, one of the few blacks to hold that position. He started a Bible study in the headquarters building of AT&T.
In 1984, Peecher resigned from AT&T and became the founding pastor of New Heritage Christian Center (now Chicago Embassy Church), populated by many members from his Bible study group. He joined the Assemblies of God and in 1992 became the first African-American to be elected presbyter.
Peecher has served as the president of the National Black Fellowship of the Assemblies of God, on the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary Board for 16 years, on the board of Teen Challenge Illinois for 18 years and is currently chairman of the board for Koinonia House National Ministry, a national post-prison ministry.
In his local community, he has been asked to serve on the board for the newly formed Washington Park Consortium, charged with improving the quality of life for the residents of the community and partnering with the University of Chicago, several banks, several churches and city and private agencies.
From his church, Peecher has planted three churches and launched several men and women into full-time ministry. His focus in teaching and preaching is to equip people to be change agents for a generation and culture.
Peecher and his wife of 38 years, Katie, have three children and five grandchildren.
