The Southwest Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of California will hold its Annual Holy Convocation on Monday, June 11, through Friday, June 15, at the 88th Street Temple Church of God in Christ, 8825 South Vermont Avenue in Los Angeles.

Bishop B. R. Benbow is the Jurisdictional Prelate, Mother Joan Walker is Supervisor of Women, Superintendent Noble Henson is Administrative Assistant, and Elder Anthony L. Williams is the host pastor.

“We are anticipating a mighty anointing from the Holy Spirit where souls will be saved, delivered and set free from the bondages of sin. Everyone is invited to attend and be blessed,” said Bishop Benbow.

The theme is ‘Seeking God‘s Way for Succeeding Generations through Obedience, Prayer and the Word’ based on II Chronicles and Ezra 8:12-14. Services begin at 6:30 p.m., with an Institute Hour taught by Dr. Hillrie Murphy and District Missionary Lula Clark. Evening worship starts at 8 p.m.

The Convocation opens Monday night with a musical directed by Dr. Iris Stevenson and Evangelist Lillie Smarr. Elder Stevie Sutton, Elder Norman Guilford and Elder Willie Bowers will bring the gospel message. On Tuesday, Pastor Ben Wachiye will preach and on Wednesday, Dr. William Atlas will speak. Bishop Benbow will deliver the official address on Friday night.

Women’s Day will be observed on Thursday starting with Morning Glory Prayer at 10 a.m. The Institute Hour will begin at 6:30 p.m., and worship at 7:30 p.m., with Supervisor Walker as keynote speaker.
