Dear International Ministers and Lay Association:
With the annual meeting for the International Ministers and Lay Association fast approaching, the association and I look forward to your safe arrival, participation, input and collaboration. I would like for us to collectively embrace the theme, “A Changing Church, but an Unchanging God.” Since the inception of our denomination, “Zion” has faced and met challenges without fail. Given the present condition of our society, our association continues to be called upon to be a guiding force in helping others witness the power of God at work, even in the midst of a plethora of things that attempt to overshadow progress that is being made daily. With a host of very important concerns on the heels of Legislative Summit held November 7-9, 2018, let us be poised to continue building upon a legacy passed down to us, while never forsaking the need to raise the bar to “serve this present age” faithfully. What an awesome time to express our continued love and dedication to the ideals that helped our association to be as great as it is. With God’s help, we will return home from Greensboro, NC all the more enthused than when we arrived.
Looking forward our collective time of sharing.
In His Service,
Dr. Anthony Witherspoon
