Passing of UTS alumna, Rev. Tonilla Nnadi

Our beloved alumna, Rev. Tonilla Nnadi, was called home to God this past Tuesday, December 17th . Tonilla graduated from UTS in May, 2003 from the Master of Religious Education degree program. She was active in her church and was installed as a Bishop in the summer of 2012.

She had bravely been suffering from cancer for the past few years but continued her ministry work throughout. The past year was difficult for her in terms of her cancer but she maintained a beautiful spirit and attitude throughout and was always encouraging, prayerful and spirit-filled until she was called home to God this week.

Services will be held at New Mt. Zion Baptist Church at 171 West 140th Street in New York City this Saturday, December 21, 2013. Viewing will be from 9:00-10:00am at the Church with the service following from 10:00am - 12:00 noon.
