Owens, Sr., Pastor hosted this glorious event. This being our election year, we are proud to announce that God has blessed us with an anointed and wonderful Executive Staff of incumbents that were re-elected for another four years. They are as follows:
Bishop Dr. Andrew J. Boomer, Jr., Presiding Bishop
Bishop Darryl Rouse, Vice
Sister Ivestia Blake, Executive Secretary
Sister Jamara Stevenson, Assistant Secretary
Trustee Dorsey Spencer, Treasurer
Elder Annie Copeland, District Evangelist
Our fraternal Assemblies from the South (mostly NC) were not with us to celebrate this 88th year due to the severity of Hurricane Florence. The affected Assemblies were: The Washington-Norfolk Assembly (Bishop
Johnson Hazel); The Union Assembly (Bishop Marcus Louis, Sr.); United Foundation Fellowship District Assembly (Bishop Anthony Terrell); Southern Assembly Church of Christ (Bishop Robert Jones); Goldsboro-Raleigh District Assembly (Bishop Chester L. Aycock); Southeastern District Assembly (Bishop Edward L. Pollock, Jr.) and our General Bishop Alton A. Smith.
Many people were displaced and many lost their belongings. The Northeastern District Assembly has an established Disaster Relief Fund for such occurences. All donations are tax exempt. You may make your checks and money orders:
