Greetings on behalf of our Chairman of the Board of Christian Education, Bishop Dennis Vernon Proctor; First Vice Chairman, Bishop W. Darin Moore; Third Vice Chairman, Bishop Nathaniel Jarret, Jr. (Ret); and Third Vice chair, Mrs. Ava Swinton:

PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW. I am so excited that I cannot keep it to myself! I want each of you to share in my excitement over what I know we will experience at TRUTHVILLE 2018 in Philadelphia, PA, December 26 - 30, 2018. THRIVE is about Strengthening Families and Developing Leaders. As you have heard over and over again, "The Winter Meeting and Leadership Intensive" are open to everyone!

Bishop W. Darin Moore, the Presiding Prelate of the Mid-Atlantic Episcopal District and Host, Co-Episcopal Directors, sis. Ashley Charles and Reverend Patrick Barret, II as well as Site Chair, Sis. Ravelle King and her committee have been working non-stop with the CED Team to ensure that you will THRIVE during and following the TRUTHVILLE 2018 LEADERSHIP ADVANCE AND FAMILY LIFE CONFERENCE. This is a first-time experience that will yield lasting results - one that will change lives, alter conditions, revive and cultivate new and lasting relationships, and on that will create new opportunities for us to increase our love for self, families and for all of God's children, regardless of our stations in life and one that will enhance our investment in our leaders!

For all who did not have an opportunity to register but are anxious to attend TRUTHVILLE 2018, you may register on November 30th and December 1st and will still receive 5% discount. Visit bit.ly/Truthville2018 to register!

Our CED website will also highlight our lineup of powerful preachers and guest artists as well. Please review the promotional information, provided by Rev. Barrett and Rev. Jackson, that highlights all that is available to prepare you for what, we know, will be a POWERFUL meeting!

GET READY! GET READY! TRUTHVILLE 2018 is just "around the corner."
