The South Atlantic Episcopal District (SAED) TRANSFORMATION CENTER is growing steadily each day. Unimaginably this major project has taken on a life of it’s on and has defied skeptics along the way. From the owners who didn’t want to sell the property to SAED, to the environmentalist who declared issues with the land, SAED has had to overcome obstacle after obstacle. But once the property was secured, Bishop Kenneth Monroe, Presiding Prelate of the South Atlantic Episcopal District gathered people from all across the district. They encircled the whole property and prayed for divine guidance.

With a trusted staff consisting of Presiding Elder Reverend Otha L. Smith, who Bishop Monroe calls his right hand and indispensible counsel; Ms. Nadine Greene, Administrative Assistant for SAED; Ms. Rosetta J. Dunham, who the bishop calls his “comptroller” and financial counsel; and his trusted life partner, Mrs. Sheila W. Monroe, Bishop Monroe has shepherded this project from a vision to a major building project due to open in late October 2014.

This massive project is rising out of a neglected area of Rock Hill and when completed will be a major economic beacon for the community and the SAED. Housing the administrative offices for all the business processes for the South Carolina portion of the episcopal district, this project will also provide the working area, food service component, conference breakout areas and worship center activities for any conferences scheduled and provide a revenue generation component that would be used to support the programming of the episcopal district and the A.M.E. Zion Church.

Targeted for opening in October, 2014, the Transformation Center has begun its marketing activities already. Sirius Networks, the website vendor for AMEZ.ORG has been tapped to develop the TRANSFORMATION CENTER website which is expected to be fully functional by late September 2014. Additionally, the episcopal district is developing a Historical Souvenir Journal which will chronicle the development of the center. You can participate in this endeavor and be a part of this historical activity by purchasing an ad for the journal. There is an episcopal district informational letter and image of the journal provided in this article or just call Ms. Nadine Greene at SAED office in Rock Hill, SC at (803) 980-2462.

Make NO mistake, TRANSFORMATION is coming, and it’s live and well in the South Atlantic Episcopal District.
