Church of Jesus Christ (Apostolic)'s 42nd Holy Convocation
Hey Everyone! It is officially summer so that means it is the season for Conventions, Convocations, and Conferences. The first conference I am going to talk about is the Convocation for the organization Church of Jesus Christ (Apostolic), which maintains its headquarters in Paterson, NJ. This year marks their 42nd year of congregating together in fellowship. The Convocation is from June 23rd to June 30th in the city of Paterson, NJ. This also marks the second year since the transition of Presiding Bishops within the organization. I still find it hard to believe that it has already been two years since Bishop Walter McKoy was installed as presiding bishop succeeding the late Bishop R. C. Williams. The theme for this year’s Convocation is “Strive to Enter”, with its theme scripture taken from St. Luke 13:24. The lineup of speakers is: Bishop B.C. Hibbert, Minister Stephens C. Stephens, Dr. Colin Cawley, Evangelist M. Mitchell, Evangelist Marion Watt, Pastor Glen Bingham, Bishop Wilbert Peynado, Bishop C.T. Richards and Bishop E. R. Thomas. This line up shows CJC staying true to their Jamaican-American culture. One great thing about this year's Convocation is that they have all their services streaming live on the website ustream. I believe that this year's Convocation will be heavily attended by the delegates within the organization. I honestly believe this will be a power packed week, where the Holy Ghost will manifest itself like never before. We are praying for CJC to have an amazing time, and that the glory of God is manifested in your conference.
