Word from the Director

Dr. Sandra Davis, Western Episcopal Director of Christian Education


IN THE REGION
by: Dr. Sandra Davis, Western Episcopal Director of Christian Education 

The Bishop of the Church issues a certificate of appointment for a role called Episcopal Director of Christian Education for the Western Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church. It says that this is to certify that Dr. Sandra Davis is hereby appointed Episcopal Director of Christian Education for the Western Episcopal District and is required to supervise, unify and promote Christian Education in the churches in said Episcopal District in cooperation with the Conference Directors and District Directors of Christian Education and report her labors to the Annual Conference, which meets at a particular church on a given date and signed and sealed by in my case Bishop Dennis V. Proctor. 

Oh how I wish that the words on that certificate were so dazzling that every Christian Education worker would here, understand and know that the work of the Kingdom in the Western Episcopal Region is not nearly complete. Let us search our hearts and minds for the real purpose that God has for us as we deepen our relationships with him through the word and works. We want to build our knowledge and understanding of our purpose and position within the AME Zion Church. The CED Department ask that each of us understand our purpose, God’s divine purpose and calling for our lives and the call to fulfill that purpose. 

I invite you to engage your hearts and minds for Western CED work so that we may grow our region in a great way.
