It was my privilege to be with the Tennessee Valley Conference on August 10 and participate in their 2019 Annual Conference.
Compassion Church in Dickson, Tennessee, served as the host. Pastor Jamie Grisham and his team provided quality service and hospitality.
Bishop Manuel Pate presented an exceptional State of the Conference Report with a strong emphasis on ARISE 2033 incorporating the goals of strategies for the Tennessee Valley Conference to be an aggressive participant. There was clear statistical information provided to validate growth and advancement. Bishop Pate is committed to engaging an increased multiethnic emphasis and is experiencing progress in reaching the Hispanic population that is growing across the boundaries of the conference. Bishop Pate provided an extensive breakdown of county to county evaluation and demographics which will drive their efforts and resources. Let’s all agree with the Tennessee Valley Conference for kingdom advancement and an increased harvest.
