Professor takes giving alms
a step further
Built shortly after the abolition of slavery and known as one of the oldest frame buildings still standing in Iowa City, the Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church (A.M.E.) is where journalism Professor Venise Berry devotes much of her time.
As an active member of Bethel for more than 15 years, Berry is a choir member, a trustee and the co-chair of the Building Fundraising Committee. She writes weekly bulletins, makes presentations, coordinates fundraising benefits, including selling cookbooks and engraved bricks.
