I greet you in that precious, saving name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
I would like to give a special thank you, once again, to our esteemed leader, Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr., for seeing fit to appoint me to this great task, of leading the Department of Evangelism. Special gratitude is also extended to the General Board and the entire General Assembly for confirming the decision. These last four years (2013-2016) have been tremendous!
It is an awesome privilege, to help fulfill the Great Commission that our Lord assigned to His Church! This Commission goes beyond the borders of my assignment. Every believer is called to evangelize.
The following pages will reflect that the saints, in 2016, were committed to the area of soul winning and evangelism. This information is provided so that you may stay abreast of what YOUR Department of Evangelism is doing to advance the Kingdom! May you be abundantly blessed!
Every time I turn around,
Bishop Elijah H. Hankerson III, BA, MA, DD
President, Department of Evangelism
