23rd Quadrennial Convention on Christian Education of the A.M.E. Zion Church: July 26th - 31st 2014
The Convention will be comprised of two components: Educational Programming and Legislative Sessions; both of which will be under the umbrella of "Zion University at Greensboro." The purpose of "Zion University at Greensboro" is to prepare leaders in Christian Education and throughout the denomination for relevant, effective ministry that fosters the development of credible, committed disciples. Learning and development opportunities will be offered to officers and leaders throughout the denomination. "Students" at "Zion University" will enroll in one of four "colleges" and select a cohort upon which they will focus during their time at "Zion University." Youth will participate in "BOUNCE" - an interactive experience designed to strengthen resilience and fortitude. Young adults will enroll in "FOCUS" - experiential learning that will empower Generation X and Y to navigate life's challenges with resolve and success. Children 3-12 will participate in spiritual, intellectual and social enrichment through the Varick's Children Summer Academy. Electives will also be offered.

Members of VICYC, ACE and YACM, Christian Education Department Staff, Episcopal Directors, Conference and District Directors of Christian Education, District Directors of Adults, District Directors of Young Adults, District Directors of Youth, District Directors of Children, Conference and District VICYC Officers and 1 young adult representative (22-40) from each Conference will participate in Legislative sessions. These sessions will include presentation of critical resolutions related to the structure of Christian Education in the denomination.

On Tuesday, July 29, officers of VICYC, ACE and YACM will be elected to serve for the 2014-2018 quadrennial period. Conference and District Youth Council Presidents and the current Executive Cabinet constitute the voting delegation for VICYC. Card carrying members of ACE and YACM comprise the voting delegation for these two organizations. All voting delegates must be registered for the Quadrennial Convention/Zion University in order to exercise their right to vote.
