On Sunday, 22 April 2001, the Fourth Annual Citywide Honors & Awards Program (for Grades K-12) was hosted at New Life Presbyterian Church and U.H.O.P. Atlanta was well represented by several of our youth who were recognized for their academic achievements. The theme for this event was "obtaining educational victory through Christ" and Apostle M. Johnson, Jr. served as the Keynote Speaker. Performers included the Madison Redeemers, Sister Nestle Arnold singing "Open Up My Heart." Others included the combined youth and children's choir from Faith Deliverance Christian Church and creative dance group Dancers of Faith from Greater Tabernacle of Faith Christian Center.

On Sunday, 24 June 2001, U.H.O.P. Atlanta's Education Committee held it's First Annual Educational Honors & Recognition Program. The program was held to recognize this year's graduates, honor students, and students promoted to the next grade level. The event featured performances including a solo by Minister Jameal Lovelace, a 2001 High School Graduate, an inspirational poem by Sis. Tramaine Pierce followed by an inspiring speech by Bro.
