Central Tennessee Jurisdiction has been truly blessed over the
past 28 years to have experienced such a great level of leadership.
We have a rich foundation to build upon and are greatly challenged
to effectively embrace our present, while we realize our future.
Central is the largest COGIC Jurisdiction in the State of Tennessee,
and it is incumbent upon us to continue the legacy of our great
leader Bishop W. L. Porter.
I believe that just because something isn’t broken, doesn’t
mean we should just leave it alone; with the help of God, we
should make it better. Over the years, we have enjoyed many
programs and initiatives and I strongly believe that our best
is yet to come! There is a great burden to expand and advance
the work of the Kingdom by empowering and fulfi lling the present
needs of local churches in our area.
I have been in prayer concerning how we can further the greatness
of this work here in Tennessee. God has put a few things in
my spirit to share with you who are already devoted to Central
and those He is leading our way. I believe these initiatives,
if embraced, will be to our advantage.
