Dear Friends,

Many of you know by now that the Administrative committee hired an outside consulting firm to evaluate and make recommendations concerning our International Office Building complex, Tomlinson College Campus and Fields of the Wood. This evaluation is an effort to ensure that we are good stewards of God’s properties managed by this church and to try to recognize how they fit into our core values and purposes.

On February 23-25, 2011 we are hosting the First Term of the Tennessee School of Practical and Advanced Studies at Camp Hickory Hills, located at 955 Wilson Hollow Road, Dickson, TN 37055. With instructors from the International Center for Biblical Leadership teaching these classes, we will be offering a great opportunity for you to participate in this excellent material from anointed and qualified leaders, Bishops Mark Menke, Adrian Varlack and Dr. Hector Ortiz.

On Thursday night of the school FEBRUARY 24, 2011 we will be honored to have Bishop S. Paul Holt, the International Director of the Finance and Stewardship Department of the Church of God of Prophecy, and member of the Administrative Committee with us to share the results of this study.

Bishop Holt is a well-known and much loved Tennessee minister who now occupies a place of prominence on our International Staff. In this presentation, he will present the findings of ARKS Inc., and will give you the time to ask your questions and express your concerns.

This meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. and will be open to anyone, NOT JUST THOSE ATTENDING THE SCHOOL. This is going to be an added benefit to the school as an additional session, but will be OPEN TO YOU.

I do hope you will join us. If you need accommodations, we can plan for you to spend the night on the campground and can include you in breakfast the next morning, but WE MUST KNOW you plan to do this. Any further inquiries may be sent to Bishop McKinley at ecmckinley@mac.com
