Apostolic greetings to my brothers and sisters in the faith!

Let me begin by thanking all of our supportive delegates who made the investment to attend our 99th annual convention in my hometown of Detroit, Michigan. Special thanks are extended to our Diocesan, Bishop Ira Combs, our Northern District Council staff members and the multiplicity of hard working volunteers who sacrificed much to accommodate the thousands who converged on Detroit to lift up the matchless name of Jesus.

I want to celebrate all of the outgoing elected officers of our many auxiliaries who have served untiringly in leadership throughout their elected terms. Please know that your service to the Lord’s kingdom has not been in vain and your many accomplishments will never be forgotten. We celebrate you and pray that God will direct you in your next phase of ministry within the Lord’s church. To all of the newly elected officers within our organization, we congratulate you and look forward to working harmoniously together as God gives us clear vision for this coming term of service.

I pray that the Detroit convention was richly filled with relevant information that has empowered you to return to your local church with the capacity to implement meaningful ministry to the people of God and your community. The preached word received by the numerous men and women of God was highly anointed and spiritually impacting. This may go down in history as the convention where the word each night seemed tailored made for the attendees. I pray that God will continue to reignite His fire from heaven within each of those who ministered to us this year.

If you did not seize the opportunity to acquire our newly released CD recording entitled, “Sound of Unity” please know that you can purchase your copy or bulk copies through our website or by calling our Headquarters office at (317) 547-9541 and asking for Lisa Golder.

Let me now congratulate all of our newly consecrated Bishops and welcome them to the Executive Board of this great “august body.” We as an organization look forward to your leadership, expertise and many contributions that we feel are certain to enhance this church in the next dimension of God.

Lastly, let me thank you all for your vote of confidence in my leadership and I will continue to solicit your most sincere prayers as I endeavor to lead with integrity and humility. Always know that Lady Crisette and I… Love You to Life!
