LANSING, Mich. — Today, State Senator Hoon-Yung Hopgood (D–Taylor) invited Pastor Dennis Clanton to deliver the invocation before Senate Session. 

Pastor Clanton serves as the head of Woodland Church in Brownstown. His ministry is committed to helping people build relationships with God and people, with an emphasis on helping individuals foster connections by using Bible-based tools to deal with issues encountered in their daily lives.

Sen. Hopgood believes everyone, regardless of affiliation, can benefit from Pastor Clanton’s message.

“Pastor Clanton’s uncanny ability to bring people from all walks of life together through small groups to celebrate the interconnectedness of life is something that everyone can honor and appreciate,” Sen. Hopgood said.

Sen. Hoon-Yung Hopgood is the first Korean American to hold state office in Michigan. A Democrat, he was elected to the Michigan State Senate in 2010 where he represents citizens of the 6th District located in Wayne County that includes the cities of Belleville, Flat Rock, Rockwood, Romulus, Taylor and Westland, and the townships of Huron, Sumpter, Van Buren and part of Brownstown.
