AME ZION CHURCH GENERAL CONFERENCE UNDERWAY!
Welcome Zionites, all over the world, to the 49th Quadrennial Session of the General Conference of the AME Zion Church. It is off and running as the church seeks to set its course for the next four years and AMEZ.ORG will update you on all the events, especially, the election of bishops on Friday evening. Additionally, this quadrennial is being streamed live at http://live.zionnewmedia.com.

Bishop George W.C. Walker, Sr., Senior Bishop of the church presided over the opening session of the conference which began with a powerful worship service culminating with a passionate and challenging quadrennial sermon from Bishop Louis Hunter, Sr., Presiding Prelate of the Mid-Atlantic I Episcopal District.

With music from a choir from the host church, Little Rock AME Zion Church, the stage was set for the challenging sermon that provided the foundation for the work facing the church over the next week. Additionally, Sacrament of the Holy Communion service was held immediately after the sermon as the Board of Bishops sought to make sure that the purpose and direction of the conference was clear. Its all about the work of God’s church. Every bishop participated in the opening session either in prayer, scripture reading, and call to worship, hymn leading, responsive reading or other forms of assistance. It was indeed reverent and highly spiritual.

As the first day wore on, the tedious work before the delegates began with the Roll Call, Report of Committee on Credentials and Seating of Delegates, Committee on Rules Report and the Adoption of the General Conference Program Agenda.

Bishop Roy Holmes closed the afternoon session with the presentation of the Bishop’s Quadrennial Address/Report. The Report was received and accepted after several request including requesting that the Report be delegated to specific committees for implementation. Additionally, it was requested that the Report be made into a pdf file and placed on the corporate website AMEZ.ORG for distribution to the full church connection.

The day ended with a Welcome service presented by the host church and its pastor, Dr. Dwayne Walker. Included in the program were welcome activities from several areas of the church, the community and from the city of Charlotte represented by City Councilman James Mitchell.
