How do I punctuate this?

First, this should be two sentences. 


... Prayer Ministry.  Also, Sister Mason stated ....


Having so many commas in a sentence does get confusing.  You have a date and a location - both of which normally have a comma in the middle.  Should there be commas after the date or the location?  I am not sure.  If you replaced the time and location with other words, would there be commas?


Joe noted that he will be attending the Expo next week in Chicago for the company. 


Perhaps someone else can put their two cents in on the commas, but it seems fine to me.

My objective is to work in an environment that pushes the current limits of my abilities and allows me the opportunity to gain respect of my peers and a greater understanding of how architecture is perceived in a sustainable agenda and to tackle issues methodologically.
