Thank you for the many calls, inquiries, and acts of kindness towards Dr. Henry H. Mitchell. He is continuing to rest and recover from his recent surgery and hospitalization. We are forever grateful that God has continued to keep him with us to share with him the many blessings and expressions of love that have come his way.
As family, our greatest concern is for his health and well-being. This latest health crisis has lead to our decision to no longer accept engagements that require any travel on his part. Once he regains his strength and completely recovers from surgery, it may be possible to engage with him via the use of today’s technology. We will provide you with more information as it becomes available.
In the meantime, we are beginning to plan for his Centennial Birthday Celebration, scheduled to kickoff September 8, 2018. We will begin here at home in Ewing and hope to schedule a year-long series of events along the path he has trod over these many years.
Please continue to check our website. We will keep you updated as these plans are developed!

We, the Board of the Directors of the Ella P. and Henry H. Mitchell Fund would like to take this opportunity to extend deep gratitude to everyone who joined us in commemorating the 100th Anniversary of our beloved Reverend Dr. Ella Pearson Mitchell’s birth and life legacy. This final “Sunday of Remembrance” marks the end of our five-year campaign to help fund the Jackson-Mitchell Chair at Union Theological Seminary in NYC. This occasion gives us the opportunity to honor the pioneering life’s work of Dr. Ella P. Mitchell, and to celebrate the full funding of a Faculty Chair, named for the first two African-American women to graduate from Union. We rejoice with the Mitchell family and all who have worked so diligently to ensure that the enduring gift of this distinguished preacher, pastor, mother and mentor of women in ministry and theological education will continue to serve the church, academy and society.
