36th Annual Convention Wrap-up
At the 36th Annual Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of West Tennessee, new elected and appointed officers were named and commissioned. You can see all elected and appointed officials here. The Convention heard a report on works of ministry already underway at St. Columba, developing sustainable ministries including the West Tennessee Pollinator Project, the Walk in 901 program, Memphis Center for Food & Faith and Memphis Tith, and the exciting news of plans and resources committed to relaunch a newly conceived ministry on the University of Memphis campus. We adopted a $1,656,313 mission budget for the coming year. Bishop Johnson gave his annual convention address and sermon that spoke to his reflections at his last regular Annual Convention before the electing Convention scheduled next November when his successor will be elected. In the end, it proved to be a positive and uplifting convention.
