Convention Scripture – Micah 7:6-8 (NKJV) 
“For son dishonors father, Daughter rises against her mother, Daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; A man’s enemies are the men of his own household. Therefore I will look to the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation; My God will hear me. Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; When I fall, I will arise; When I sit in darkness, The LORD will be a light to me.”

At the 101st General Assembly, Bishop McKnight rolled out the vision to honor our seniors 75 years and older.  Those who know the history of this great church are aware of the tremendous accomplishments they have made over the years and our goal is to honor them. The word of the Lord reads, “Honor your father and mother which is the first commandment with a promise” (Ephesians 6:2 NIV). We are planning to do just that. 
The banquet is not for the general population but for seniors and invited guests. To help defray the cost of the event, we’re asking you to purchase a Senior Sponsorship ticket.  Please consider doing your part to honor these warriors for Christ. Please select the REGISTER HERE tab above to support a senior today.
