BISHOP AND PASTORS
Bishop Jefferson-Snorton has scheduled a MANDATORY meeting for all active pastors in the three Alabama Regions via Zoom at 3 pm central on Sunday, September 27, 2020. The log-in information should have come to you from your Presiding Elder.
Retired pastors, clergy-in-residence, supernumerated ministers and ministers on trial who are not pastoring are welcome to attend.
The meeting should last about one hour and will focus on the work of the local churches and regions during the upcoming months as the pandemic continues, including considerations around re-opening church buildings.
Direct questions to your Presiding Elder.
