CORRESPONDENCE REGARDING THE CANCELLATION OF THE 2020 MEN PERFECTING MEN CONVENTION
March 30, 2020
“Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:2
Greetings in the Name Of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
The COVID-19 Virus has created a new reality that has adjusted our norms and redefined our approach. The International Men’s Conference of the Church Of God In Christ was instituted for the Inspiration, Education, and the Empowerment of Men across our nation. Through this conference homes have been mended, spiritual relationships strengthened, and many new local and jurisdictional leaders have emerged carrying the mandate set by our Presiding Bishop to Men in every locale.
There are moments that transcend personal desires and cause us all to a higher level of awareness and corporate responsibility. As a result of the COVID-19 Virus and subsequent pandemic, the International Men’s Ministry will not host our annually scheduled Conference in Chicago, Illinois as planned. We are currently considering other options to provide our constituents the opportunity for inspiration, education, and empowerment in the days to come. Please know we look forward to what God will do in our 2020 Men’s Day Celebration during our Holy Convocation. To each of this year’s Conference registrants, please know that your 2020 Registration will be refunded upon request or applied to your 2021 Conference Registration as the health and wellness of our constituents is preeminent in moments like this.
For more information please email the office of the Secretariat of the Men’s Department at [email protected] with your contact information and the nature of your request and a staff member will respond in short order.
We are extremely thankful for your understanding during this historic time and please know it is an honor and privilege to serve you.
In His Service,
Superintendent Michael B. Golden Jr.
Conference Chairman & Men’s President
