The following news was received too late to appear on Thursday’s Religion Page.
The 2008 Armorbearers Conference will open Saturday, with registration from 10-10:30 a.m. at Anointed Church of the Living God on South Miles Avenue in Union City. There is a $10 registration fee, payable at the door. Pre-registration is required by calling the church at 886-0186, Elder Stephanie Marshall at 446-7826 or Deborah Gilmore at (731) 514-3686. Pre-registration will allow organizers to plan for the noon meal, which will be provided by E.W. James & Sons deli.
The conference will be in session 10:30 a.m.-4 p.m., and Bishop Barbara Bolden, pastor of the church, and her staff of bishops, elders and ministers in training will be teaching the foundational truths associated with serving the leaders of churches as armorbearers for those people.
Being an armorbearer, she says, involves carrying the vision of the leader in the heart and adopting that vision as one’s own. Questions about the role and duties or armorbearers, developing an armorbearer ministry and dealing with the side effects of armorbearing will be answered.
