The United Palace House of Inspiration honored the Rev. Dr. Eula M. Dent Eikerenkoetter for her 50 years of stewardship, service and contributions to Reverend Ike Ministries and the greater United Palace community.

The event took place May 15, 2016, during Sunday service at United Palace (4140 Broadway). Guest speaker the Rev. Dr. Sheila McKeithen, president of the Universal Foundation for Better Living and spiritual leader of the Universal Centre of Truth for Better Living in Kingston, Jamaica, delivered the keynote. The celebration continued with a banquet in the historic mezzanine event space.

“It is an honor and a privilege for us to come together to celebrate my mother, known throughout our community as Rev. Mrs. Ike,” said Xavier Eikerenkoetter, UPHI spiritual director. “I say this not just as her son, but as someone who has seen firsthand the reach and power of her compassionate and spiritual leadership—as it is reflected in the lives of all she has touched.”
