As the week closes, a multitude of our leaders from all levels of leadership are traveling home (of course the closer delegates are home by now) with their hearts filled from the past four-days of teaching, worship and fellowship at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Convention Center in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. This was a joint effort within the leadership ranks of our churches to reach out and develop ourselves to be better ministers of the Gospel, particularly to the young harvest around us.
We had a good representation from the pastors, and local church leaders in Tennessee, and everyone I spoke with enjoyed the conference and received a great deal of material and fresh inspiration.
Bishop Sam Clements, the North American General Presbyter, along with Trevor and Ailene Reid, International Youth Ministries Team and Katherine Creasy, International Children’s Ministries director were the co-hosts of the conference. Along with these ministries, all but two of the North American Overseers attended, along with the General Overseer and a total of three General Presybters (four counting Bishop Clements). Other International appointees were in attendance. There were delegates from all over the United States and from as far away as Argentina.
We are privileged to have such great leaders to work with in this church, and in the past days we have seen our CORE values in action as we Prayed, Developed Leaders and made preparations to get into the harvest.
