SPECIAL SESSION FOR ALL STEWARDS
AND TRUSTEES
AT LEARNING ACADEMY!

 

 

Message from Bishop E. Anne Henning Byfield

Dear Members of the Thirteenth District: 

I hope that you are preparing for the 2024 Learning Academy to be held July 11-13, 2024, at the Bowling Green Convention Center, Bowling Green, Kentucky.   By now your church has received the hotel information and I trust you have made your reservations.  

Much is affecting the life of our global Zion and the churches in the Thirteenth District. The strengthening of the church and community are only two areas of critical concern.  Another area of concern results from the many questions by pastors and lay about how decisions should be made in the local church, who’s in charge, conflict, growth, finances etc.   As I have listened to these concerns, I am clear a refresher course is necessary for clergy and officers of the church particularly stewards and trustees.   

All stewards and trustees are asked to attend on Friday, July 12th for the Preparing Leaders for Leadership Class taught by me.  This is not optional.  If your stewards/trustees cannot attend, at least the pro tems must be present so that we can grow and serve together.  Each person attending will get a certificate of appreciation.  The Chistian Education Department has set a day registration for persons who cannot stay for the entire learning academy.  

The class will be held on Friday, July 12 at 9 am.

It is my expectation that you will attend and help us become better leaders.

Leaders lead,

Bishop…

East Tennessee Annual Conference
@ Bethel AMEC-Knoxville


September 14        YPD Conference
September 17        WMS Conference
September 18-21   Annual Conference

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

May 20, 2024 Letter from Rev. Myron D. Hill and Bethel AMEC-Knoxville Annual Conference Planing Committee:

Greetings to the Presiding Elder and members of the East Tennessee Annual Conference,

Thank you for accepting Bethel’s invitaton to host you at the 124th session of the East Tennessee Annual Conference. It is scheduled for Sept. 14 (YPD Day) and Sept. 18–21.

We will be receiving our new Bishop and Supervisor some 15 days before the start of the conference. While we are unaware of who they will be, we are readily preparing for their arrival just the same.

Your hotel accommodations for our time together will be at THE CROWNE PLAZA, 401 W. Summit Hill Dr., SW, Knoxville, TN. This hotel is 5 minutes from Bethel and was recently refurbished in 2021. The rooms are handsomely appointed; we know you will be pleased with your accommodations. The rates are as follows: One queen or two queen beds, $145; king, $160 plus tax. Parking is $15 per night. The room block is Tuesday to Saturday. Please tap on the reservation link on this email to secure your room.

Be advised: Knoxville is a busy city. Had UT played the weekend you are here, the rooms would be $1800. However, there is another city-wide function going on which drives the nightly rates upwards to $300 for the weekend. We have secured the best rate for your entire stay. Therefore, please make your reservation NOW. We are sharing these rates with East Tennessee only at this time because this is our conference. After our Church School Convention, then we will open it up to all of the 13th, who will come meet, greet and sit under our new Bishop since our conference is first. It was quite difficult to get rooms for the duration of the conference at this rate!

We are preparing to host you well, feed you well and accommodate your stay with us. May the blessings of the Lord be yours forever!


Yours in Christ,
Myron D. Hill, M. Div., Host Pastor
and the Bethel Conference Planning Team

 

Link instructions: Once you access the following link, change the dates to the days you are staying for the conference.  Make sure the rate preference says GROUP RATE. Once you press enter, you'll see BETHEL AME CHURCH on the tab that lets you know you're getting the conference rate:
