2018 THEME:  The Church – Contending for the FAITH!

Jude 1:3; 1 Peter 2:9


thank you

Psalm 106:1 NLT Praise the Lord! Give thanks to the Lord, For He is Good! His faithful love endures forever. 

Words cannot express my happiness and gratefulness first to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, for making our 96th Annual Session a great success.  To every Officer, Pastor, President, Presenter, Speaker, facilitator, lay person, musician it is because of you that we were blessed each day and night of our Session.

A great big thank you to the Mass Choir from Bakersfield (The People’s MBC, Dr. V.K. Jones, Pastor and St. John MBC, Dr. Antonio Alfred, Pastor) for setting the atmosphere for the worship services through song.

It is our desire that when we come to our convention, that we will leave with information that we can take back to our churches to help them, that’s why it was important to have presenters and facilitators speak and teach on the following classes and topics during our 96th Annual Session. Encouraging your Pastor, Empty Pulpit, Mass Incarceration, Character Counts, Church Transformation, Living with Bitterness, Benefits of Blessing the Body of Christ, Transformation, Working with your Pastor, Men Take over your Territory, Ministering to your Pastor, Difficulties of Pastoring in the 21st Century, Leading a 21st Century Church, Retirement for your Pastor, Pastor Transformation, and Life Insurance for your Pastor and the members.  Pastor Rikki Ferrell, Jr., Dr. Tellis Chapman and Dr. Antonio Alfred preached an awesome Word, we also enjoyed each ministry President as they gave an account of their stewardship for the year.

I pray that each of you were blessed as I was, and I look forward to seeing you in 2019 for our Winter Board in the great City of San Diego, Dr. G.A. Williams, host.
