A Message from Bishop Lewis
No Cabinet changes for 2017-2018

Dear Virginia Conference, 

I am delighted to be here in the Virginia Annual Conference and look forward to our shared ministry of “making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”  After prayerful discernment, I have decided  there will be no Appointive or Extended Cabinet Changes in 2017-2018.  I would like to continue to build the present team and allow myself an additional year to meet and learn the clergy that could be an additional asset to the Cabinet in the coming years.  Please continue to keep us in your prayers. 

Peace and Blessings, 
Bishop Sharma D. Lewis
