Elogeme Adolphi Christian Sorority “Blessed Sisterhood” Celebrates 28th Year at Bradley University

It all began with a woman’s dream — the late Evangelist Mattie P. Dawson dreamed of a Christ-centered true sisterhood of women who while pursuing academic excellence on college campuses worldwide, would develop spiritual discipline and continue to cultivate their relationship with Christ within the framework of sisterhood; “Eulogia”(supremely blessed and favored), Adolphi (sisterhood).

Elogeme Adolphi Christian Sorority ”Blessed Sisterhood” celebrated their 28th year at Bradley University Garrett Center, October 17th, 2015. Elogeme Adolphi’s Genesis Chapter was established on the campus of Bradley University in 1987 by Evangelist Mattie Pearl Dawson. The first National Advisor was Denice Ross-Haynes, while Admissions Counselor at Bradley. Bradley Alumni who helped to blaze the Elo Path were acknowledged, Audrea Fumbanks-Nanabray, Tracy Listenbee-Tripplet, Georgetta Guice-Glover, Lisa Johnson, Tara Johnson-Peacock, Sherry Gordon-Harris, and April Ross-Todd.

Thus, Elogeme, which began as a dream of one woman has evolved over the years, developing into a ministry supported by a consortium of Christians including the late Dr. Myles and Ruth Monroe. Elogeme has established 21 chapters on college campuses and community chapters in Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Florida and Georgia, in addition to the evolving Megiste Arete’ (maximized manhood chapters),Teen Elogeme and the supportive ecumenical ministry of Purple Hat Brigade.

National Advisor, Judy Hendricks, also a Bradley Alum, in her “Pearls of Wisdom” address challenged the members to embrace their rich Elo Heritage and walk it out in 2015. Dr. La Tricia Scrivens and Dr. Darryl Scrivens commented on Elogeme’s amazing journey and “Recalibration Time 2015” in their video presentation from Florida A&M University. Bradley University students and the West Peoria community received the benefits of “Just Becauses” (random acts of kindness) as members Elogeme adorned in their purple paraphernalia purchased lunches, bought gas and conducted other financial and spiritual acts of kindness as a part of their Kingdom Service Project in and around CampusTown.

Representatives from Elogeme Chapters in Illinois included Bradley University (Genesis), ISU (Cherith Brooke), Northern Illinois (Great Waters), Northwestern University (Coram Deo), University of Illinois (Berakah), Southern Illinois (Beyth Lechem), Chicago State (Daughters of Issachar).
