Ministers’ Wives and Ministers’ Widows from across the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean will gather at the Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, June 26, through Friday, July 1, for their 71st Annual Conference. Dr. Beverly W. Glover, International President, will preside over the event.

The interdenominational group of ministers’ wives and ministers’ widows meet annually for a week of fellowship, study, and worship. The mission of the group is to prepare and encourage ministers’ wives for greater service in their respective communities. This year, President Barbara Watkins and the California State Association are hosting the conference.

“The public is cordially invited to join us in our evening services beginning with the Communion Service on Sunday evening at 7:30 p.m. The messenger will be Rev. Edwin Watkins of Mount Zion Baptist Church in San Francisco,” said Dr. Glover.

On Monday at 7:30 p.m., the California State Association will officially welcome the delegates with local and state dignitaries bringing greetings. Tuesday’s schedule includes the convention musical at 7:30 p.m., under the direction of Dr. Margaret Pleasant Douroux.

The Awards Banquet is set for Thursday evening. Mrs. Denise Hunter, first lady of First A.M.E. Church – Los Angeles and CEO of the FAME Corporation, will receive the Bright Light Community Service Award in recognition of her outstanding service in the Los Angeles community and across the United States.
