We welcome you to join us for the 150th Session of the California Annual Conference of the Western Episcopal District AMEZ Church. As we celebrate 150 years of spiritual leadership marked by a journey of humble beginnings, successes, challenges, sacrifices, and most of all faith, we hold fast to what God has in store for the future. We believe that our growth and development in the next 150 years will yield fruit beyond measures.
Our Creator is calling on us to be more committed to his commission of spreading the gospel throughout all the land. By doing so we will see an increase in church growth, outreach and spiritual development. Our mission is to build a new paradigm for God’s work around church expansion with plans that reach beyond the walls of complacency, fear, setbacks, doubts and mediocrity. I challenge you to dare to believe the impossible knowing God is the difference.
During the Session, we will not only engage in worship and praise, but we will also better equip ourselves to do the work of our Father and serve His people. We will use our time together to define a new direction, rededicate ourselves to the principles on which we were founded and most of all to revive our commitment to do God’s work. The Western Episcopal District California Conference is poised on the precipice of greater success.
At the close of the conference on Saturday June 9, we will recognize our past accomplishments and celebrate our future at the Sesquicentennial Gala Banquet and Concert with gospel great, Tamela Mann. Plan to meet me there.
Anointed to Serve,
Bishop Staccato Powell
