Holy Women Upholding

The Foundation

And Landmarks
Of Our Faith."

Psalms 11:3
Proverbs 22:28
23:10
FOREWORD

As w e reach the turning point of the 21st Century, we have


seen many changes in our communities, schools, nation as
well as in the religious arena. We are aware, however, that
methods may change, but principles remain the same.

Holy women, in this world of changes, w e must uphold the


foundations and landmarks of our faith. Let nothing shake
or destroy your faith. We have been instructed to "Remove
not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set."
(Proverbs 22:28)

"Therefore my beloved brethren (sisters), be ye stedfast,


unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord,
forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in
the Lord."
(I Corinthians 15:58)

The Committee
ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
With deep appreciation, it is indeed a privilege to thank
and commend Mother Mattie McGlothen for her ability to
present such an enriching and edifying program for the
women of our church and for allowing women all over the
country to have a part in this program.

We acknowledge the support given us by our Presiding


Bishop L. H. Ford, the General Board, Board of Bishops,
including the Bishops of Tennessee and all Co-Hosting and
Supporting Jurisdictions.

We express special gratitude and "thanks" to Mother


Freddie J. Bell, the staff at the Department of Women's
Headquarters Office, the various c o m m i t t e e s and all
persons who have worked untiringly toward the compilation
and publishing of this Journal and also the coordinating of
the activities for our Convention.

The Committee
THE STORY OF OUR CHURCH
"THE CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST"
THE CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST is a Church of the Lord Jesus Christ in which the word
of God is preached, ordinances are administered and the doctrine of sanctification or holiness
is emphasized, as being essential to the salvation of mankind. Our church is commonly known
as being Holiness or Pentecostal in nature because of the importance ascribed to the events
which occurred on the Day of Pentecost, the 50th day after the Passover, or Easter as being
necessary for all believers in Christ Jesus to experience. On the Day of Pentecost, the first day
of the week, the Lord's Day, Supernatural Manifestations descended in marvelous copiousness
and power. The gift of the spirit in the fulfillment of the promise of Jesus to clothe those who
would wait in Jerusalem with power from on high, was accompanied by three supernatural
extraordinary manifestations. The sudden appearance of the Holy Ghost appealed first to the
ear. The disciples heard a "sound" from heaven which rushed with a mighty force into the house
and filled it-even as a storm rushes-but there was no wind. It was the sound that filled the
house and not a wind, an invisible cause producing audible effects. Next, the eye was arrested
by the appearance of tongues of fire which rested on each of the gathered COMPANY. Finally,
there was the impartation of a new strange power to speak in languages they had never learned
"as the Spirit gave them Utterance."

Our Church is also considered to be a member of the great Protestant body though it did
not directly evolve from the European or English Reformation but had its origin within the General
Association of the Baptist Church.

Elder Charles Harrison Mason, who later became the founder and organizer of the Church
of God in Christ, was born September 8, 1866, on the Prior Farm near Memphis, Tennessee.
His father and mother, Jerry and Eliza Mason, were members of a Missionary Baptist Church,
having been converted during the dark crises of American Slavery. Elder Mason was converted
in November, 1878, and baptized by his brother, I. S. Nelson, a Baptist Preacher, who was
pastoring the Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church near Plumerville, Arkansas. In 1893, he
began his Christian Ministry with the accepting of ministerial licenses from the Mt. Gale
Missionary Baptist Church, in Preston, Arkansas. He then experienced sanctification through
the word of God and preached his first sermon in "Holiness" from 77 Timothy 2:1-3; "Thou therefore
endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ." On November 1, 1893, Elder Mason matriculated
into the Arkansas Baptist College, but withdrew after three months because of his dissatisfaction
with the methods of teaching and the presentation of the Bible Message. He then returned to
the streets and to every pulpit that was opened to him declaring Christ by the word, example,
and precept.

In 1895, Bishop Mason met Elder C P. Jones of Jackson, Mississippi; Elder J. E. Jeter, of
Little Rock, Arkansas; and Elder W. S. Pleasant of Hazelhurst, Mississippi, who subsequently
became Bishop Mason's closest companions in the ministry. Jointly, these militant gospel
preachers conducted a revival in 1896, in Jackson, Mississippi, which had far-reaching affects
on the city. The theophanic manifestations of the revival, which included the large numbers
that were converted, sanctified, and healed by the power of faith and the dogmatic teachings
of Bishop Mason on the doctrine of sanctification caused church doors within the Baptist
association to become closed to him and to all those that believed and supported his teachings.

So in 1897, when these pioneering, persistent preachers returned to Jackson, Mississippi,


Bishop Mason was forced to deliver his first message from the south entrance of the courthouse.
A Mr. John Lee, who desired to see Bishop Mason's ministry continue, provided the living room
of his home the next night. Because of the overwhelming number that attended, a Mr. Watson,
the owner of an old abandoned gin house in Lexington, Mississippi, gave his consent to transfer
the revival meeting to the gin house located on the bank of a little creek. This gin house
subsequently became the meeting place for the Church of God in Christ. This miracle deliverance

"The first day in the meeting f sat to myself, away from those that went with me. f began to thank God
in my heart for all things, for when f heard some speak in tongues, 1 knew it was right though 1 did not understand
it. Nevertheless, it was sweet to me. I also thanked God for Elder Seymour who came and preached a wonderful
sermon. His words were sweet and powerful and it seems that 1 hear them now while writing. When he closed
his sermon, he said 'All of those that want to be sanctified or baptized with the Holy Ghost, go to the upper
room; and all those that want to be justified, come to the altar.' f said that is the place for me, for it may
be that I am not converted and if not, God knows it and can convert me... " "Glory! The second night of prayer
I saw a vision. I saw myself standing alone and had a dry roll of paper in my mouth trying to swallow it.
Looking up towards the heavens, there appeared a man at my side, f turned my eyes at once, then f awoke
and the interpretation came. God had me swallowing the whole book and if f did not turn my eyes to anyone
but God and Him only, He would baptize me. I said yes to Him, and at once in the morning when f arose,
I could hear a voice in me saying, "I see..."

"I got a place at the altar and began to thank God. After that, 1 said Lord if 1 could only baptize myself,
I would do so; for I wanted the baptism so bad that I did not know what to do. f said, Lord, You will have
to do the work for me; so I turned it over into His hands." "Then, f began to seek for the baptism of the Holy
Ghost according to Acts 2:4, which readeth thus: 'Then they that gladly received His word were baptized,' Then
1 saw that I had a right to be glad and not sad."

This new pentecostal experience which Elder Mason found for himself, for he began to proclaim
to others upon his return home to Memphis, Tennessee as a New Testament doctrine. A division,
subsequently, became evident within the ranks of Elder Mason's contemporaries when Elder
J. A. Jeter, the General Overseer, Elder C P. Jones, and others regarded the new Holy Ghost
experience of speaking in tongues as a delusion. Being unable to resolve their difference in
doctrine, the General Assembly convened at Jackson, Mississippi in August of 1907, to discuss
this New Testament doctrine. The General Assembly terminated by withdrawing the "right hand"
of fellowship from C H. Mason.

Elder Mason then called a conference in Memphis, Tennessee of all ministers who believed
in receiving the baptism of the Holy Ghost according to the scriptures in Acts 2:1-4. Those
who responded to Elder Mason's urgent call were E. R. Driver, J. Bowe, R. R. Booker, R. E.
Hart, W. Welsh, A. A. Blackwell, E. M. Page, R. H. I. Clark, D. J. Young, James Brewer, Daniel
Spearman and J. H. Boone.

These men of God organized the first pentecostal General Assembly of the "Church of God
in Christ." Overseer C H. Mason was then chosen unanimously as the General Overseer and
Chief Apostle of our denomination. He was given complete authority to establish doctrine, organize
auxiliaries and appoint overseers. Dr. Hart was appointed Overseer of Tennessee; Elder J. A.
Lewis was appointed Overseer of Tennessee; Elder J. Bowe, the Overseer of Arkansas; later
Elder J. A. Lewis was appointed Overseer of Mississippi. As the church grew, Elder E. M. Page
was appointed Overseer of Texas; Elder R. R. Booker, Overseer of Missouri; Elder E. R. Driver,
Overseer of California and Elder W. B. Holt as the National Field Secretary. As the Chief Apostle,
he immediately dedicated twenty days, November 25th through December 14th annually as
a meeting time for all of his followers to fellowship with each other and to transact all ecclesiastical
and secular affairs pertinent to growth of the National Organization. This segment of the year
was chosen because the majority of the communicants of the church lived in the farming districts
of Mississippi, Tennessee and Arkansas. By this time of the year, they had sufficient provisions
and financial resources from the harvesting of their crops, to enable them to attend and support
a national meeting.

The first National meetings were held at 392 South Wellington Street, Memphis, Tennessee.
The first National Tabernacle was built and completed at 9 5 8 South Fifth Street, in 1925. This
Tabernacle, however, was destroyed by fire twelve years later in 1936. In the interim until
1945, our National Convocation was held within the Church pastored by Bishop Mason at 672
South Lauderdale. In 1945, Bishop was able to visualize the culmination of his dream. He
dedicated the Mason Temple at Memphis, Tennessee which was built for less than $400,000
during World War II. This auditorium became the largest convention hall owned by any colored
religious group in America.

Under Bishop Mason's spiritual and apostolic direction our church has grown from ten
congregations in 1907, to the second largest pentecostal group in America.

The Office of the General Secretary of the Church of God in Christ in 1973, stated that the
estimated membership of the Church is currently three million. Churches under the parent body
in Memphis, Tennessee, are now established throughout the United States, in every continent,
and in many of the islands of the sea.

To the Delegates of the Forty-Third


Annual International Women's Convention:
Greetings to you and may the blessings of God be with you and yours.
I am happy for this opportunity to thank you for your loyal support of the Women's Department
and the International Women's Convention.
We truly thank God for our Presiding Bishop L.H. Ford. We can see that through his God
given leadership ability and efforts, the Church is growing spiritually and the works in Memphis
and Lexington have truly taken on a new look. We thank God for the privilege to be allowed
through the Women's Department to be a support and be a part of the dream of our leader.
I am sure that you that were blessed to visit Lexington recently received new inspiration.
We as women love God, we love our Church and we love the doctrine of our Church. We
are endeavored as Holy Women to Uphold the Foundation and Landmark of our Faith. We are
coming together at this convention to get strength and a renewal of power - spiritual power.
Along with this renewal comes great responsibility and accountability and stewardship of that
spiritual uniqueness that God has given us.
I love you and may the abundant blessings of God dwell with you and yours shall be my honest
prayer.
A member of my local congregation, Sister Ida Parker, read this poem at one of our services
recently and I want to share it with you.
SECRET CLOSET
I looked into the cupboard of my life just the other day
There I found a lot of things I need to throw away.
There is a large can of excuses, I so often use
And that jar of pride I try, so very hard to excuse.
There is that box of good intentions that I need to refill
With actually helping the less fortunate Maybe, visiting those who are ill.
There's the stack of broken promises that were hastily made to God
When from Him I want something, At a time when things were hard.
Of course there is a carton of lies on the back of one shelf
But they're not real big ones, they're white ones, I told myself.
The whole top shelf was filled with ego, that stares me in the face
Makes the going mighty rough trying to run this race.
So badly do I need to work to clean this cupboard out
And replace the contents on each shelf with what real Christian work is all about.

Yours because of Calvary,

A TRIBUTE TO OUR MOTHER
DR. MATTIE McGLOTHEN
Sometimes, when children grow up, the time they and their mother can share
is limited. And even when they find the time, they do not seem to find the
words, but we want to share these words with you, and we want you to r e m e m b e r
them always...

We are proud and thankful that you are the woman who loved us. We'll never
forget the love you have shown us or your constant support and encouragement.
You always believe in us and that has helped us to become the ones we are
today. Our relationships may seem to have changed over the years, but we
know our love hasn't. The bond we share can not be changed; we are together
even when we are apart, for you are forever in our hearts, and we love you.

Tender, wise, caring, and patient - all the things a mother should be, you are.
You have showed your love in all the ways a mother can. You have made time
for us when there w a s no time. You comforted, cheered, encouraged, and taught
us to see our own strengths. You understood and supported us when we needed
to know we were not alone. You helped us to see the beautiful, the good, and
the positive in life. You touched our lives in ways you'll never realize. Thank
you, we love you because you have always been just YOU!!!

We praise God for His unspeakable gift, as we embark u p o n a joint venture in
Headquarters Jurisdiction. Bishop J. O. Patterson, Jr. and Mother Freddie J. Bell's
emphasis for our jurisdiction is "PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE'.

With t h i s in m i n d , God i n s p i r e d M o t h e r F r e d d i e J. Bell t o o r g a n i z e t h e


Missionary and Auxiliary Awareness Institute. The Institute will fulfill all the goals
of our jurisdiction.
It will provide training for the Licensed Evangelist Missionaries with concerns
for Continuous Edudcation after completing the required courses for license. It ad-
dresses the need for auxiliary leaders and laity for a structured a p p r o a c h for their
work also.

Bishop J. O. Patterson, Jr. enthusiastically accepted the Institute for the training
of women in Headquarters Jurisdiction. With Mother Bell's leadership and guid-
ance, our Institute came to fruition.

"Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of oth-
ers, " (Philippans 2:4) motivates the w o m e n of Headquarters Jurisdiction. We are
obligated to share ourselves. One of the most valuable contributions we can make
to others is a willingness to s h a r e "knowledge". O n e of o u r o u t s t a n d i n g Black
Colleges (Morehouse) has a motto: "Those w h o know, teach". Thus, we say to one
another: "I care about you as a person; your need to k n o w becomes our need to
share what we know."

Love is choosing the highest good for others. We have chosen to demonstrate
this love by s h a r i n g w i t h o u r m i s s i o n a r y sisters, auxiliary leaders a n d all lay
w o m e n in our Jurisdiction.

The Missionary Institute trains a n d p r e p a r e s missionaries t h r o u g h academic


pursuits and field ministries. These are prerequisites for the Evangelist Missionary
License.

The Auxiliary Awareness Institute addresses the needs of licensed missionaries,


auxiliary leaders and lay w o m e n in a structured setting.

Upon completion of a prescribed curriculum, participants receive certificates in


Bible Study, Institute Participation, and Field Ministry.

H e a d q u a r t e r s J u r i s d i c t i o n will b e greatly e n h a n c e d w i t h b e t t e r i n f o r m e d
w o m e n . The p a s t o r s a n d local c h u r c h e s will be greatly h e l p e d w i t h better in-
formed w o m e n — aware of their p r o p e r functions in the local church. The District
will receive m o r e enthusiastic members from local churches because of this new
a w a r e n e s s . The Bishop a n d State Mother will be recipients of better i n f o r m e d
m e m b e r s of the Jurisdiction

This o p e n d o o r has been a "God Send" for our Jurisdiction; and we praise and
magnify God for it.

THE HISTORY OF THE LAKEVIEW DISTRICT
B Y MISSIONAR Y ERNESTINE LIPFORD
An offspring of the Carneige District, where its Superintendent J e s s e J. Lipford served
briefly after the demise of Superintendent R. C. McNeal, Sr., the Lakeview District
began in 1987. So soon detached from its mother's apron string, the Lakeview District
had to work as a precocious child, and that the district did.
Lakeview originally consisted of nine churches, after the separation it was reduced
to approximately five churches. Its original enthusiasm had dwindled. But the fiery
District Missionary Willie B. White and the exuberant Superintendent Jesse Lipford
rekindled the zeal with Holy Ghost fervor.
Soon after the enthusiasm was about to peak, there came a sudden change in the state
of Tennessee for the Church Of God In Christ. In 1 9 8 9 it became an open state, as
a result the Lakeview District became a m e m b e r of the newly formed Tennessee Fifth
Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of the Church Of God In Christ.
Superintendent Lipford began to recruit churches, for churches now could choose what
district they wanted to be a part of. Missionary Barbara D. Wells became it's new
District Missionary.
Four of the former churches remained and several more were added. The Lakeview
District grew to a membership of about twelve churches. MISSIONARY ERNESTINE LIPFORD
As one sign of its progress, in 1992 one of its pastors, Elder Granville Scruggs was Superintendent's Wife
promoted to District Superintendent of the Hebrew District. Another pastor, Elder
Dickerson Wells, was appointed to a larger church, the Hebrew Church Of God In
Christ.
Another evidence of progress is indicated by the number of state officials in the district.
The former pastors, Superintendent Scruggs and Elder Wells, are Jurisdictional
Secretary and Jurisdictional Youth President, respectively. District Missionary Wells
and Sister Ernestine Lipford are assistants to the Jurisdictional Supervisor. The
Superintendent J e s s e Lipford is assistant to the Jurisdictional Bishop.
In 1 9 9 3 the Lakeview District is blessed and doing well. Currently it consists of the
following churches:
1. Lakeview Community Temple COGIC, Superintendent J e s s e Lipford, Pastor
2. Emmanuel COGIC, Elder Robert Clay, Pastor
3. Prayer Tower COGIC, Elder George Coleman, Pastor
4. Grace Temple COGIC, Elder L. B. Harris, Pastor
5. End Time COGIC, Elder Carl Williams, Pastor
6. Solomon Temple COGIC, Elder Tony Triplett, Pastor
7. Bethel Rehoboth COGIC, Elder Charlie Martin, Pastor
8. Forgiveness COGIC, Elder Clay Nelson, Pastor
9. All Saints Mission COGIC, Elder Thomas Alston, P a s t o r
10. Power House Mission COGIC, Evangelist D. L. Jackson, Pastor
11. Mt. Carmel COGIC, Elder Charles Patton, Pastor
Superintendent Lipford, Missionary Wells, and all the m e m b e r s of the Lakeview District MISSIONARY BARBARA D. WELLS
give God the glory for all He has done. District Missionary

MISSIONARY PLEDGE

I believe in the doctrine of this, the Church Of God In


Christ, as it is interpreted by our founder Bishop C. H.
Mason, and perpetuated by the ministers of said
church to be the Doctrine of the Bible. As a missionary,
I pledge my loyalty to this church and its doctrine,
pledging to teach it faithfully and no other as long as I
hold its licenses. I further pledge my loyalty to the
leadership of this church, always holding them in
honor and esteem. I also pledge my obedience and
service to the best of my ability, according to t h e
dictation of the Scripture.

We thank God for his manifold blessings that he has bestowed upon us. Thank God for the
peace and h a r m o n y that exists here among the saints in the Second J u r i s d i c t i o n of

are encouraged to go higher in God.

We are grateful for our Women's Department. We have a group of loyal, obedient and faith-
ful women to do the Lord's work. Our bands and auxiliaries are working. The Women's

Thank God for our Bishop A. V. Jordan and his sweet wife. We pledge our loyal support to
him.

Our prayers are with our (Mom) Dr. Mattie McGlothen.

PROJECT MACEDONIA

"And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; there stood a man of Macedonia,
and prayed him, saying, come over into Macedonia and help us." Acts 16:9

"Then said he unto His disciples, the harvest truly is plenteous, but the
labourers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will
send forth labourers into His harvest." St. Matt. 9:37, 38. "...Behold, I say
unto you, lift up your eyes, and look on the fields: for they are white already
to harvest."

This is an invitation to all interested persons who want to see the work of
the Lord continued. Project Macedonia needs ordained clergymen with a
pioneering spirit, dedicated and able to take the challenges in faith.

Kentucky has a population of more than 3,660,257. From North to South 175
miles; East to West 350 miles. The area of Kentucky is 39,669 square miles.
The capital, Frankfort, has no Church of God in Christ. Kentucky is a wide
geographical area and several major cities within Kentucky has no Church
of God in Christ.

THE BISHOP'S WIVES CIRCLE
CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST

We salute our Presiding Bishop L. H. Ford, the General Board


and the CoUege of Bishops for the tremendous job they are
doing in serving our Church..."THE CHURCH OF GOD IN
CHRIST, INC."

The Bishops' Wives Circle gives special thanks to Mother


Mattie McGlothen. In humility and gratefulness, we consider
it a blessing to be able to share in the work of the Lord.
It is our prayer that God would continue to bless here as she
continues to lead the women of our great church in the way
of holiness.
In Mother McGlothen, we have found a "friend", for..."A
friend is one who knows you as you are, understands where
you've been, accepts who you've become and still invites you
MRS. DAISY L. SHERMAN
President
to grow."
Let us aU join together in the spirit of prayer as we strive for
perfection.

BISHOPS' WIVES CIRCLE

THE ORCHID

The Bishop's Wives of the Church Of God In Christ consist of a group of unique Women,
w h o are all willing to be used by God. They resemble the Orchid, which is a plant with
beautiful, queerly s h a p e d flowers that are formed of three petal-like sepals and three
petals, one petal being very different from the other two. The Orchid is widely distributed
in temperate and tropical regions. The Orchid is characterized by having its own style, stig-
ma, and stamens united into a central body. We are a united group of Women who also rep-
resent Christ.
The Bishop's Wives Circle salute the Church Of God In Christ Leaders, who has shown us
strength in the time of sorrow and has brought to us..."Peace in the midst of storms".
Our faith in God has helped us to make the transition from tragedy to triumph; to make the
adjustment from adversity to acceptance; to make the climb from conflict to conquest; and
to make the ascent from anxiety to achievement. This lets us know that God is on our side
and in this year we look forward to greater heights in God, for He has promised that this
would be the year that we would "lack nothing".

THE PASTOR'S WIFE
by
J e a n C. M c K i n n e y

It is a single honor to share with you some of the experiences and insights that
I have received during the 25 years that I have been a pastor's wife.
According to Genesis 2:18 and the Lord God said, "It is not good that the man
should be alone; I will make him a help mate for him," Genesis 2:21-24 states,
"And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept: and He
took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof: And the rib which
the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman and brought her unto the
man. And Adam said, "This now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh: she
shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man: therefore, shall a
man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife and they
shall be one flesh."
The pastor and his wife must realize that since God has made them one that
they are a team in ministry. In order for the Pastor and his wife to reach their
top potential in ministry, they must be moving together in unity. Where there
is a lack of unity between the Pastor and his wife, the spirit of disunity is
MRS
permeated throughout the fellowship. The community as well as the J™* c - MCKINNEY
congregation is taught a negative lesson of disunity by the Pastor and his wife since they are role models.
Frequently, young married couples look for examples from other couples that they can emulate during the early
years of marriage. It is very important that the Pastor and his wife provide the kind of role modeling for young
couples as well as all couples that will exemplify the spirit of love and unity that should exist among Christian
couples.
If you are a pastor's wife, it is not coincidental that you are in that position. Just as God calls the Pastor to his job
as pastor, He has called his wife to compliment that ministry. The pastor's wife need not hear a baritone voice
thundering in the sky saying, "I have called you to be a Pastor's wife." But, when God joined t h e m together as o n e
flesh, the call to the ministry for the Pastor included his wife. To say that the Pastor's wife is called to the ministry
does not mean that she should usurp authority over him, but that she will join with her husband moving in the
same direction.
As we look at ministry today, we are beginning to see more and more pastors and their wives working together as
a unit in the ministry. Many more pastors wives are taking part not only in the area of music for the c h u r c h but
they are beginning to share in the word ministry. The extent to which a pastor's wife shares in an active role in
the ministry depends on that local church or the denomination to which she belongs.
The job of being the pastor's wife is probably the most difficult job in the church other than that of being the
Pastor. I am sure that many of the pastors' wives will feel that there are times when being a pastor's wife seems
more challenging than that of the pastor.

It is significant to note that there are seminaries, bible colleges and schools of ministry throughout the country to
help prepare the Pastor for his job as Pastor, however, there are almost no courses to help prepare the pastor's
wife for her job. She consequently has to rely on the Lord, older ministers' wives, an occasional conference and
the method of trial and error for her training.

The job of the Pastor's wife is ambiguous, since most congregations do not have a job description to define the
specific task of pastor's wife. The role of the Pastor's wife will vary according to denomination a n d congregation.
In some congregations she is expected to be a leader of women, choir director, pianist, fundraiser lecturer
speaker, counselor, role model for dress and conduct and prayer leader. She is accepted as Co-Pastor or Assistant
Pastor in a number of churches. In still other churches she is expected to remain silent and be an ornamental
dressmg on the pew each Sunday.

In spite of the job of pastor's wife being trying, in most congregations there is never a salary appropriated for her.
Some congregations will honor their pastor's wife on a specific day with gifts and offerings. Most congregations

86
T h e PaStOr'S W i f e (Continued)
expect the pastor's wife to serve without salary even though she may be well trained in a specific area and have her
own earning power.
The position of the pastor's wife is unique. There are many advantages of being a pastor's wife. The pastor's wife
receives a blessing when she feels God's approval of her work in the ministry. To be involved as an agent of change in
the lives of those who are confused, broken hearted, hungry and spiritually lost is rewarding.
Special blessings seem to follow the pastor's family as if God is saying, "I will not let any sacrifice, deed or
contribution made in my name go unnoticed." Contrary to popular belief, ministers' children are not the worst
children in the world. It is true however, that more attention is focused on them than most other children.
Consequently, any misbehavior on the part of the minister's children tends to be greatly exaggerated. There is great
truth in the scripture that states, "Train up a child in the way it should go and when he is old he will not depart from
it." As a result of the tremendous amount of Christian training that the minister's children get at home they are
among the most successful children in our society.
The pastor's wife is referred to as first lady, giving to her a special distinction and honor that many pastors' wives
enjoy.
It is also a job for many pastors wives to have the privilege of accompanying their husbands to special community
events and special family celebrations within the congregations such as marriages, baby dedications, graduations and
family reunions. The Pastor and his wife may sometimes be called on to meet with national and world leaders in
religion, politics, education, etc.
There are also a number of disadvantages in being a pastor's wife. To plan an exciting vacation and to have it
interrupted because of a need in the church can sometimes be very disappointing.
Learning to be quiet when you know you have a right to speak calls for a very mature pastor's wife.
The constant availability of the Pastor to the congregation frequently presents hardships for the first family. The
Pastor must keep in mind that his first responsibility is to his family and then to others. If the Pastor fails to spend
prime time with his family, the family is neglected.
The pastor's wife adjusting to criticism is a challenge that most pastors' wives find difficult. Although criticism can be
a helpful tool in helping to develop one into his or her top potential, it takes a spiritually aware Christian who
recognizes the spiritual value in criticism.
A few years ago there was a lady in our congregation that continually harassed me. She made being a pastor's wife a
real trial. Nothing that I did or didn't do seemed to please her. Not only did she make it known to me that she was
unhappy with me but she would share her discontent with other associates. As I prayed and complained about this
matter to the Lord, I wanted her to leave our fellowship and fine another church where she would be happy. After I
sought the Lord on this problem, the Lord seemed to have made me aware that this lady was there to help perfect me.
As I received this insight from the Lord, I became more loving, more tolerant and more understanding toward this
lady that I once saw as a thorn in my flesh. It is amazing how I began to grow spiritually because of a change in my
attitude. Because of my attitudinal change her attitude also changed and we became good friends.
No matter what the pastor's wife may be experiencing, her proper attitude will be the bridge that will carry her
through any tumultuous situation. With the proper attitude, problems, difficulty, pain and sorrow can always be kept
in the proper perspective. The proper attitude can only be achieved through consistent prayer and the study of God's
word.
The innumerable demands placed on the pastor's wife by the Pastor, her famiy and the church may cause her to feel
burned out. It is during these times that she may find it impossible to share her feeling with her husband, friends or
family members. Feelings of loneliness may be felt by the pastor's wife as she begins to experience burn out.
I have found that during the time of burn out, I need to spend more time with the Lord in prayer, in scriptures,
attending a conference or taking a vacation. Spending a few hours in the mall shopping during the time of burn out
gives me a chance to relax, away from the pressure of phone calls, counseling and other demands that are draining.
However, in spite of the many disadvantages of being a pastor's wife, I count myself highly favored of God to be
involved in ministry with my husband. I am sure that other pastor's wives who are totally committed to the work of
the Lord will realize that the disadvantage in being a pastor's wife does not compare with the rewards that the pastor's
wife receives. This is especially true when she understands her role as pastor's wife and accepts with gratitude the
task that God has chosen for her.
87
T h e PaStOr'S W i f e (Continued)
Another problem that is worthy of note is the attitude on the part of some of the parishioners of owning the
pastor's family. These kind of members get great satisfaction in attempting to dictate to the family members where
they should go, what they should wear, what they should do or not do. The pastor's family must not permit
anyone to put them in bondage. It is through freedom of the spirit that they can freely serve the Lord.
Stress is an emotion that continually plagues the pastor's household. The Pastor, his wife and children all live in a
glass house, creating an atmosphere of stress. Nearly everything that goes on in the pastor's home tends to be
subject to approval, disapproval or good material for conversation among the church family and all too often in
the community at large. Children of the Pastor and wife tend to resent being in a position of criticism from those
around them and some will frequently rebel. These children want to be treated like all other children, with love,
respect and understanding.
Many pastor's wives deal with a spirit of jealousy. In every congregation there are some women who will seek the
attention of the Pastor and will often act unwisely when they seek to get counsel from him. In such a case, it is
important that the minister's wife have self-confidence and self-knowledge. By knowing who she is and
maintaining a proper relationship with her husband she will have confidence in him and trust him to conduct
himself above reproach. A pastor who makes his wife his best friend will find that his wife feels confident about
their relationship and she will have fewer reasons to have an attitude of jealousy.
It is crucial that the Pastor and his wife view their ministry as a joint ministry. Failure on their parts to accept
their ministry as a joint ministry frequently results in conflict. This conflict will cause a breakdown in the
relationship with each other, rendering that ministry less effective. When a relationship between the Pastor and
his wife is broken down there is an absence of communication. A lack of communication between the minister
and his wife will hinder them from receiving from God the ultimate spiritual benefit that He has for them. The
congregation and family tend to suffer from this type of confused relationship since the Pastor and his wife are
role models.
When the Pastor and his wife work toegether as a team, their accomplishments are extraordinary. For they have
learned the secret of success in the ministry. Standing together in a prayer and the study of the Word and seeking
God's plan for their lives and moving in the direction that God is calling them results in a successful ministry.

THE CHURCH MOTHERS BOARD, NATIONAL AND STATE LEVEL

The role of the local church mother is indeed one of great importance and a "must" for a growing church.

She is to a pastor in the local church what a wife is to her husband in the home.

The day has far passed for a pastor to teach from the pulpit things that women should know. It was never
proper, but accepted because of the time. Today, such teaching and instructing would only embarrass
and drive our present-day generation from the church.

Here is a very important task for the local church mother. She should hold monthly meetings with the
women of the church and teach them things women should know. This is far more effective through the
church mother's board. This board is made up of a group of seasoned and well informed women in church
administration. This board shall consist of a president, vice president, secretary and treasurer.

They must know their obligations to the church and pastor in order to instruct others. This board shall
teach the support of the church and pastor. The women should be taught community respect and appreciation.
Church mothers should most certainly lead and teach along these lines.

The major responsibility is to help to build every auxiliary of the Women's Department in the local church.
The church mothers should have finger-tip information as to the functions of every auxiliary. They should
be able to see to it that they are properly staffed and functioning. A strong church is one that is spirit-
filled and wellorganized. This will not take from the pastor, but will enhance his program and help to
build the kingdom of God.

An effective church mother's board cannot operate without the authority released by the pastor and officers
of the church. It is unfair to appoint a chairwoman of the board and tie her hands and the hands of the
board. Women who cannot be trusted should not be appointed because the responsibility is too great.
A failure in operation will only impede the progress of the church.

There should be a pastor-church mother relationship going on at all times.

Department of Women

We pray that God will continue to crown your heads with wisdom and knowledge as you lead this Grand Ole' Church
Of God In Christ.
During this Holy gathering of our 43rd Annual Women's International Convention, we are praying that the Delegates
and others will receive a special blessing from the Lord.
Second Jurisdiction is blessed to report that God is working wonders through his people. Revivals are being held
throughout the Jurisdiction and people are coming to the prayer Lines and altar giving their souls to Christ. Some are
claiming victory over cancer, drugs and through the spiritual renewing of the minds of many married couples, family
life is being blessed and we are thankful.
Through hard work and faith in God, St. Stephens Christian School was built so that children can get a christian edu-
cation. Our founder, Bishop Charles Harrison Mason so organized this Church that even our present leadership is based
on an abiding faith in God and deep love for humanity. This same faith and love has helped to inspire us to continue to
build, for we want to install these qualities in every individual who comes through or program. In 1989, God blessed us
to open the doors of a 'New Frontier', Charles Mason University, San Diego, giving men and women the opportunity
and tools to reach their highest potential in education with highly qualified Instructors.
In the inner city of San Diego, there are many people crying for help, therefore we have built multiple units for low in-
come housing, dedicated new middle class houses for the low income family and within a very short time, we will open
the doors of a newly built Stucco Building for the Senior Citizens built on the St. Stephens adjacent properties.
Second Jurisdiction is blessed with Missions and a street ministry of feeding, clothing and housing the homeless.
Churches are being added to the Jurisdiction and people are yet being saved. The Jurisdictional Recording Minister's
Wives Chorus have begun new recordings for 1993-
During our Jurisdictional Workers Meeting, we paused for a few hours and held a memorial service for the homegoing
of a Man and Woman who supported and were dedicated to serving the homeless. We feel that it is our duty to love and
respect everybody. Yes, we are inspiried to keep praying, "Keep giving, Keep dreaming, Keep building for the people."
The Lord Hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad.

MISSIONARY CIRCLE
The Missionary Circle is a group of w o m e n in the Church Of God In Christ who fall into three categories: Namely Deaconess,
Licensed and Evangelist. (See instructions and qualifications for Evangelist Missionaries.)
Deaconess Missionaries: (A) Women w h o feel an inner call to missionary work. (B) Women who feel in their hearts that they
have been led by the Spirit of God to engage in this work and to assume it's responsibilities. (C) Women who will to the best of
their ability do all that is within their power to faithfully perform the tasks of missionaries. (D) Women who will daily read and
study the Word of God as their rule for faith and practice. (E) Women who will seek for knowledge from a higher power that
they may be able to rightfully divide the word of truth. (F) Women who will live consistent Christian lives as is required for saints
that they may help others by precept and example. (G) Women who will be governed by those in authority to direct their efforts
to greater channels of service. A deaconess aspiring missionary will confine her missionary activities to her local church unless
she is accompanied by a licensed worker. Deaconess missionary work is the initial work of a missionary and it will serve well
to seek missionary training from a Bible School. You will find that training will help you to better serve God and His people.
Licensed missionaries: Licensed missionaries are women with the same qualifications as aspiring missionaries but because of
their past training and experience are licensed to go and teach God's Word beyond their local church. A licensed missionary
may do service throughout the state over which she resides. However, her services must be respected and accepted throughout
the recommendation of her pastor, c h u r c h mother, district missionary, state supervisor and bishop. Should she pass all the
powers that be, she may be recommended to go before the Board of Examiners for Evangelist License and this is to be done only
if she is in a position to travel and conduct meetings wherever called, and has held her Deaconess License for at least two years
and served faithful in the work.
Missionary Circles operate o n a local level w h e r e there are a sufficient number of missionaries. A unique home missionary
program may be set u p for visiting the sick, administering to the needs of the poor, reaching unchurched families and Bible
training classes.
Every district and state missionary circle should be very strong with monthly meetings covering every area of missionary work.
A missionary will have to have two requisites: (1) A mission and (2) a vision. These two elements make for a greater endeavor in
soul winning.
Missionary Circle shall include all of the missionaries, both licensed and aspiring. They are to work with the District Missionary
in every distrct. The District Chairman of the Missionary Circle may work with the District Missionary and the missionaries of
the district. The State Chairman will work with the officers of the district circles in effecting a state missionary program. They
are to carry along with the spiritual program, a financial program also.

PURITY CLASS AND PURITY CLASS TRAILBLAZERS


PROCEDURES OF WEEKLY MEETINGS
Purity Class:

Age: 12-15 Years


Devotion: This portion of the meeting should begin with a song and prayer, scripture, and end with a song.
Business: This portion of the meeting should begin with reading of the minutes from the previous meeting, followed
by reports from committee chairmen. Plans for the next meeting should be planned in advance. It is very important
to have a variety of activities for each meeting. This group can be easily bored with repetitious programs.
Committees: Planning; membership; absentee; sick, floral and decorating; domestic science and art; hobby club;
entertaining (Chairmen of social functions such as dinners, banquets, get-acquainted socials, teas); uniform; finance;
devotion (the chairman of this committee must be a person who is very dedicated to God.)
Meeting Time: If at all possible meetings should be held once a week.
Other Notes: Each purity class group should have a purity class president and purity class lady. In every meeting
the purity class national theme song should be sung (Tune: California Here I Come.) The national slogan (Let Therefore
Purity Reign) should be stated.
Comments: Let us make sure that purity class plays a great part in the local church, for whatever the need is, in the
district, state and national program. We must be seen, felt, and heard in the program of the church.
Purity Class Trailblazers:
Age Level: 16 and above Mr. and Miss Purity of the purity class should entertain more mature programs and activities.
Suggested Activities: Dramatic Club; discussions on their views concerning today's way of life such as home cooking
versus frozen foods, recipes, family life versus a career for our young couples, love and devotion to their own families;
steps to making and keeping the home in every aspect; how to make a budget with your money and live by it; the
future family.
"THE PURITY CLASS SONG"
P is for Purity C is for Christianity
U is for Unity L is for Loveliness
R is for Righteousness A is for Associates
I is for Intelligence S is for Sobriety
T is for Truthfulness S is for Salvation
Y is for Youthfulness
SO JOIN THE PURITY CLASS TODAY OF THE CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST
FOR ALL OF OUR YOUTH, PURITY - PURITY - PURITY, SO JOIN THE PURITY CLASS, S0-J0IN-THE PURITY CLASS.

"The need for Christian Women to overcome


obstacles and triumph over defeat and dis-
couragement through application of their
spiritual faith "

MOTHER LEOLA BRYANT

First- The obvious obstacles. Those we recognize a n d discipline ourselves to h a n d l e -


s u c h as - family ties, worldly allurements, early possessons; weights a n d sin.
Second— Those that a r e n o t so obvious-they o u r in o u r minds—Inner Obstacles s u c h as
UNBELIEF, DOUBT AND FEAR.
T h e r e a r e m a n y ways to c o n t e n d w i t h m o u n t a i n o u s obstacles - But J e s u s said IF YOU HAVE
FAITH AND DOUBT NOT...YE CAN SAY UNTO THIS MOUNTAIN, BE THOU REMOVED AND BE
THOU CAST INTO THE SEA; IT SHALL BE DONE! FAITH! Therefore to o v e r c o m e obstacles a n d
t r i u m p h over defeat a n d discouragement Christian Women w e m u s t e x p e l a n d get r i d of all
DOUBT a n d FEAR a n d APPLY FAITH!
FAITH is a New Testament w o r d . It occurs in practically every b o o k a n d it is f o u n d 16 t i m e s
alone in J a m e s . It occurs o n l y twice in all t h e Old Testament (Deut. 32:20; H a b . 2:4). FAITH
is of t r e m e n d o u s i m p o r t a n c e , first of all it is written in Hebrews 11:6 "But WITHOUT FAITH,
IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD." Secondly, everything d e p e n d s o n it.

BACKGROUND:

Annually we are challenged by the thematic projections of our convention. From it we derive
an inspiration that motivates us to return to our various fields of labor with renewed vigor to
go a little further. This year's theme challenges us as holy women to remember who we are
(our faith), where we've come from (our foundations), and what we are to be about (our landmarks).

Scripture carries a clear prohibition against removing landmarks. In the east, fields and land
boundaries were marked by heaps of small stones, posts or one large stone. It was easy for
a person who was less than honest, to slowly move these stones. Little by little the person
could take over more and more of their neighbor's land. (Deuteronomy 19:14) The Mosaic law,
strongly condemned such actions.
203
Our Lord has also fixed certain standards and principles of faith. We have no authority to broaden
or lessen the boundaries set by God Himself. To move, live and operate beyond these God ordained
holiness principles suggest we are then "operating on satanic territory." Much of our last day
activities comes dangerously close to this prohibition. These boundaries and perimeters are
to be taught to our children. What group is better equipped to uphold God's principles than
the Holy Women of our COGIC Faith.

THEME DEVELOPMENT:

I. Upholding Our Foundations

A. Our Biblical Foundation-Holiness

One of the basic cardinal doctrines of the Bible is holiness. God


commands and expects those who follow Him to be holy.
(Leviticus 11:44-45; II Timothy 2:19; Hebrews 12:14)

B. Our Denominational Foundation - Prayer

The originators of our denomination carefully and prayerfully laid


the foundation upon which we stand today. Through prayer, fasting
and tremendous sacrifice our beloved founder, Bishop C. H. Mason,
general supervisors, Mother Lizzie Roberson, Mother Lillian
Brooks Coffey, Mother Anne L. Bailey and others instilled the
doctrine of holiness and Godly living in our church.
(Ephesians 2:20)

Mrs. Erma K. Hill


First Jurisdiction N. E. Arkansas

C. Our Departmental Foundations - Service

The v a r i o u s a u x i l i a r i e s , b a n d s and u n i t s of t h e W o m e n ' s


D e p a r t m e n t form the foundations upon which the W o m e n ' s
Department was built. They provide avenues through which women
can become involved in ministry that helps to undergird the local,
state and national church. These auxiliaries were instituted for the
purpose of strengthening the local church. (Women's Department
Handbook; Official COGIC manual)

II. Protecting Our Landmarks;

A. By "Recognizing" Our Holiness Boundaries

In order to protect our landmarks we must first recognize that there


a r e holiness b o u n d a r i e s to be p r o t e c t e d . S c r i p t u r e c l e a r l y

204
establishes that we must draw the line (put a difference) between
holy and unholy; clean and unclean. Therefore, as holy women we
must identify those boundaries that sets us apart from the world.
(Leviticus 10:10; II Corinthians 7:1; Titus 2:11, 12)

B. By "Maintaining" Our Holiness Boundaries

As holy women we must guard our holiness principles against those


who would like to compromise them. We must not allow this world
system to infiltrate our stand. We should regard our holiness
boundaries as sacred and not allow anyone to tamper with them
in any way.
(Deuteronomy 4:2; 12:32)

Mrs. Louise Dean


Mississippi North

C. By "Enforcing" Our Holiness Boundaries

We can not afford, as holy women, to see wrong and do or say


nothing about it. Therefore, we must do all we can to compel others
to observe our holiness principles.
(Leviticus 10:10, 11; Titus 2:15; Ephesians 5:11)

III. Preserving Our Faith;
A. By Remembering Our Faith

To adequately preserve our faith we must never forget the tenets


of our faith. They witness who we are and our accomplishments.
(Joshua 24:26, 27; Deuteronomy 8)

B. By Teaching Our Faith

Teaching is the imparting of knowledge to others. As holy women


it is our responsibility to show others through instruction and
training the principles of our faith.
(Deuteronomy 6:6-9; II Timothy 1:5; Titus 2:3, 4)

Mrs. Linda Kelly


Tennessee Central
C. By Observing and Living Our Faith

It is not enough to remember our faith, and teach our faith, but
most importantly we must be a living example of our faith. We live
holy so others may see our good works and then become believers
also. Our lives must be dedicated to the observance of the principles
of our faith. As the lyrics to an old song states: "I want the world
to see J e s u s in my life, by the life that I live and the service that
I give."
(II Corinthians 3:2; Matthew 5:16; I Peter 1:2, 3)

DOCTRINES OF THE CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and contains one harmonious and sufficiently complete system of doctrine.
We believe in the full inspiration of the Word of God. We hold the Word of God to be the only authority in all matters
and assert that no doctrine can be true or essential, if it does not find a place in this Word.

THE FATHER
We believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Author and Creator of all things. The Old Testament reveals God in diverse
manners, by manifesting his nature, character, and dominions. The Gospels in the New Testament give us knowledge
of God the "Father" or "My Father," showing the relationship of God to Jesus as Father, or representing Him as the
Father in the Godhead, and Jesus himself that son (St. John 15:8; 14:20.) Jesus also gives God the distinction of
"Fatherhood" to all believers when he explains God in the light of "Your Father" or "Your Father in Heaven" (St.
Matthew 11:25).

THE SON
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Second person in the Godhead of the Trinity or Triune Godhead.
We believe that Jesus was and is eternal in his person and nature as the Son of God who was with God in the beginning
of creation (St. John 1:1). We believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin called Mary according to the scripture
(St. Matthews 1:18), thus giving rise to our fundamental-belief in the Virgin Birth and to all of the miraculous events
surrounding this Phenomenon (St. Matthew 1:18-25). We believe that Jesus Christ became the "suffering Servant"
to man; this suffering servant came seeking to redeem man from sin and to reconcile him back to God, his Father
(Romans 5:10). We believe that Jesus Christ is standing now as mediator between God and man (I Timothy 2:5).

THE HOLY GHOST


We believe the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, proceeds from the Father and the Son,
is of the same substance, equal in power and glory, and is, together with the Father and the Son, to be believed in,
obeyed, and worshipped. The Holy Ghost is a gift bestowed upon the believer for the purpose of equipping and empowering
the believer, making him a more effective witness for service in the world. He teaches and guides one in all truth.
(John 16:13; Acts 1:8; 8:39).

THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY GHOST

We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Ghost is an experience subsequent to conversion and sanctification
and that tongue-speaking is the consequence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the manifestations of
the fruit of the spirit (Galatians 5:22-23; Acts 10:46; 19:1-6). We believe that we are not baptized with the Holy
Ghost in order to be saved, but that w e are baptized with the Holy Ghost because we are saved (Acts 19:1-6,
J o h n 3:5). When o n e receives a baptismal Holy Ghost experience, w e believe one will speak with a tongue
u n k n o w n to oneself according to the sovereign will of Christ. To be filled with the spirit means to be spir-
it-controlled as e x p r e s s e d by Paul in Ephesians 5:18-19. Since the charismatic demonstrations were neces-
sary to h e l p the early church to be successful implementing the command of Christ, w e therefore, believe
that a Holy Ghost e x p e r i e n c e is mandatory for all m e n today.

We believe that m a n was created holy by God, composed of body and soul. We believe that man, by nature,
is sinful and unholy. Being born in sin he needs to be born again, sanctified and cleansed from all sins by
the blood of Jesus. We believe that man is saved by confessing and forsaking his sins, and believing o n the
Lord Jesus Christ, and that having become a child of God, by being born again and adopted into the family
of God, h e may, and should, claim the inheritance of the sons of God, namely the baptism of the Holy Ghost.

Sin, the Bible teaches, began in the angelic world (Ezekiel 28:11-19; Isaiah 14:12-20) and is transmitted into
the blood of the h u m a n race through disobedience and deception and deception motivated by unbelief (I
Timothy 2:14.) Adam's sin, committed by eating of the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge of good
and evil, carried with it a permanent pollution or depraved human nature to all his descendants. This is
called "original sin." Sin can not be defined as a volitional transgression against God and a lack of confor-
mity to the will of God. We, therefore, conclude that man by nature, is sinful and that he hath fallen from a
glorious and righteous state from w h i c h he was created, and has become unrighteous and unholy. Man,
therefore, m u s t b e r e s t o r e d to his state of h o l i n e s s from w h i c h h e has fallen by b e i n g b o r n again (St.
J o h n 3:7.)

MOTHER LUCILLE V. BAZEMORE MRS. ALVER1NE COURTNEY BISHOP ESAU COURTNEY


Jurisdictional Supervisor First Lady Jurisdictional Bishop

It is with great pleasure that the Department of Women, New Jersey, First Jurisdiction, extend
Congratulations to Mother Mattie McGlothen for her Godly and distinguished leadership.

The Department of Women in our Jurisdiction is continuing to make progress under the inspiring and
energetic leadership of Mother Lucille V. Bazemore.

Our Bishop, Bishop Esau Courtney, is supportive of the activities in the Department.

At our 9th Annual Retreat in September, 1992, we were highly honored and blessed of the Lord to have
as our Principal Speaker, Mother Freddie J. Bell, National Hospitality President and 2nd Assistant General
Supervisor for the Department of Women. Mother Bell ministered under the anointing of the Holy Ghost
and as a result many were blessed, healed and delivered. The attendees returned to their various churches
and homes rejoicing, encouraged and spiritually revived. Supervisors from the Tri-State Area were also
in attendance at our Retreat.

Theme for our Fourth Saturday Unity Meeting during 1993 is:

"WHAT DOTH THE LORD REQUIRE OF THEE, BUT TO DO JUSTLY, TO LOVE MERCY AND TO WALK
HUMBLY WITH THY GOD."
Micah 6:8

Mother McGlothen:

In behalf of the Women's Department of Greater North Carolina Jurisdiction, we pledge our loyal support
and cooperation.

With great pride we take special notice of the achievements already attained and we are confident that
through your godly leadership of the Women of the Church Of God In Christ there will be more notable
successes achieved. We are aware that much is yet to be done. A progressive organization looks to the
future more than to the past, nevertheless, from time to time it is important that we review our achievements.

We thank God for your spiritual guidance and a vision for advancement.

Yours in Christ,

HOSPITALITY EXCERPTS
The Hospitality consultants and special projects committee is the committee who
sees to it that the hospitality group has the extra finance to answer the call of the
G e n e r a l S u p e r v i s o r of t h e N a t i o n a l C h u r c h . T h a n k s to e a c h s p o n s o r ,
Jurisdictional Supervisors and Bishops for letting us work in the vocation where
in we are called. Please support the workers in your state. They are taught their
first duty is on the home base.
Never try to do anothers job. If we would learn this valuable lesson, we would
know that hospitality is a vital part of the ministry. Knowing this, we should
never become so involved in things that do not let us show kindness to one an-
other.
The spirit of persons serving, should do so with grace, seasoned with salt. Never
trying to impress others of their greatness. We are servants doing a job God has
permitted us to do.
Paul tells us in I Timothy "to practice hospitality."
I Peter 4:9 says, we are to "practice hospitality ungrudingly to one another."
I Timothy 3:2, "A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant,
sober, of good behavior, GIVEN TO HOSPITALITY.
So you see, this gift of God can be exercised proudly.

JURISDICTION
The Prayer Warriors are women who fast and pray
and have a great love and passion for the church
and a burden for souls. Their involvement in
other activities should be limited so that they can
give themselves wholly to prayer.
The Prayer Warrior should live a consecrated life
and be able to reach God at any time. She must
be able to comfort those who are in need and
strengthen the weak. She must have faith to
believe that God answers prayer. She must be
humble, peaceful, merriful and understanding.
The Prayer Warriors, take charge of the devotional
services, visit the shut ins and continue to pray
for the weak, the church, the governors, nations,
and rulers, and the many problems that confront
die people of God.

THE CHURCH MOTHERS BOARD, NATIONAL AND STATE LEVEL

The role of the local church mother is indeed one of great importance and a "must" for a growing church.

She is to a pastor in the local church what a wife is to her husband in the home.

The day has far passed for a pastor to teach from the pulpit things that women should know. It was never
proper, but accepted because of the time. Today, such teaching and instructing would only embarrass
and drive our present-day generation from the church.

Here is a very important task for the local church mother. She should hold monthly meetings with the
women of the church and teach them things women should know. This is far more effective through the
church mother's board. This board is made up of a group of seasoned and well informed women in church
administration. This board shall consist of a president, vice president, secretary and treasurer.

They must know their obligations to the church and pastor in order to instruct others. This board shall
teach the support of the church and pastor. The women should be taught community respect and appreciation.
Church mothers should most certainly lead and teach along these lines.

The major responsibility is to help to build every auxiliary of the Women's Department in the local church.
The church mothers should have finger-tip information as to the functions of every auxiliary. They should
be able to see to it that they are properly staffed and functioning. A strong church is one that is spirit-
filled and well organized. This will not take from the pastor, but will enhance his program and help to
build the kingdom of God.

An effective church mother's board cannot operate without the authority released by the pastor and officers
of the church. It is unfair to appoint a chairwoman of the board and tie her hands and the hands of the
board. Women who cannot be trusted should not be appointed because the responsibility is too great
A failure m operation will only impede the progress of the church.

There should be a pastor-church mother relationship going on at all times.

The Marilyn Lawana Monroe Educational Center was founded by Sister Mary
Monroe, mother of the late Sister Marilyn Lawana Monroe. The purpose of this
educational center is to motivate children to learn all they can of God, academics
and life skills. This center also serves the comunity. What better ministry can
there be than to captivate the minds of the youth and train them in the ways of
the Lord. Courses currently provided at the center are: Christian Leadership
Training, Home and Life Skills, Actors Guild, Crafts and Study Hall. These classes
also promote better attitudes and learning skills for public education as well.

The most capable Dean of the school is Miss Madelyn Jackson. Miss Jackson
taught public school in the Austin area for a number of years. She has h e r Masters
Degree in Education and is a valuable asset to the school. Teachers for the school
are: Mrs. Demetra Michelle Grant, Mrs. Marline Martin, Mrs. Sherrolyn Rogers,
Mrs. Sherril Ndubuisi, Mrs. Ann Monroe and Mr. Anthony Monroe, Sr. Class ses-

has the time been ripe for a united effort - the blazing head-
lines, the screaming commentators, the shrieking sirens, bullet-ridden bodies, cutthroats
or burned bodies, gangs, mobs and purposeful resentment. This is a grim picture before us
today and most of the picture include young people 10 years of age and up.
I thank God for our International Bishop Louis Henry Ford w h o has made every effort to
bring us back to the basis of our church and encourages us to maintain the heritage of our
church. But the questions come to mind:
What became of the mother who spent Saturday getting things ready for Sunday? What
has become of the mother who can tell where her boy or girl is at night? or the mother
whose first duty is to prepare a hot breakfast for the family and see tht the children are
dressed properly for school or even see that they go to school? What has become of the
mother who refused to allow young people to do in her home what perhpas they may not
be allowed to do in their own homes? What has become of the mother who feels that the
teacher is a co-partner in the rearing of her children and who are never guilty of saying
derogatory remarks about him or her? What has become of the mother who stays at home
nights with her family and sees to it that the home lessons are gotten before the radio or
television is turned on?
The mother who teaches self-confidence and respect to her children beginning early in life
and who solicits the help of those about here with the guidance of them. The mother who
lives to pray and teaches her child to pray and sends it to bed with a pat and a good night's
sleep. Whose warmth is radiated through the child to make it a blessign to all whom it
comes in contact with. The mother who lives as she would have her children to live is a
crying need in the world today.
Oh yes! Mothers, women, and all concerned, let us be about our Father's business - THE
NIGHT IS FAR SPENT.
Most cordially yours,

Mother Kathryn Daniels

MISSIONARY PLEDGE
I believe in the doctrine of this, the Church Of God In
Christ, as it is interpreted by our founder Bishop C. H.
Mason, and perpetuated by the ministers of said church
to be the Doctrine of the Bible. As a missionary, I
pledge my loyalty to this church and its doctrine,
pledging to teach it faithfully and no other as long as
I hold its licenses. I further pledge my loyalty to the
leadership of this church, always holding them in
h o n o r and esteem. I also pledge my obedience and
service to the best of my ability, according to the
dictation of the Scriptures.

"CHRISTIAN HOPE MAGAZINE"
APRIL, 1937
HISTORY OF THE BIBLE BAND
by MOTHER LIZZIE ROBERSON

Miss J o a n n a P. Moore in the Spring of 1885, published the first issue of


a little p a p e r called "Hope". This p a p e r contained wonderful Bible lessons.
The women of almost every denomination in the Southland began to r e a d
this little p a p e r and to organize Bible Bands in their churches. She taught
in Louisiana until some of the white people in that particular section didn't
want to h e a r h e r teach among the Negroes, so they pinned a picture of
a little coffin and a crossbone at her door, so she left Louisiana and w e n t
to Little Rock, Arkansas.

T h e r e she opened a school and had the m o t h e r s and women to come to


h e r school. She taught the Bible so, until many t u r n e d to God. This w a s
in 1 8 9 1 . Oh, how the young women prayed for a closer walk with God!
As they r e a d their Bibles many began to organize Bible Bands in their
churches and clubs of their " H o p e " paper from which they got their lessons.
The women went from house to house reading the lessons from the " H o p e "
and praying for more love.

I moved from Helena to Pine Bluff in 1892, but, I didn't get in touch with
Sister Moore until 1 9 0 1 . I was then a m e m b e r of the Baptist Church, I
received my first " H o p e " p a p e r in the Bible Band of that church. Sister MOTHER LIZZIE ROBERSON
Moore w a s a great woman. Her life touched mine. I w a s m a d e a t e a c h e r First General Supervisor For The
in the Baptist Church of which I was a member. I studied this p a p e r until D e p a r t m e n t of W o m e n 1 9 1 1 - 1 9 4 5
the Lord sanctified me. Sister Moore said that she s a w something in m e
that touched her. She begged the Lord to take my h a n d s out of the w a s h
tubs and fill them with good books and Bibles, that I might go from house
to house and teach God's people that were lost s h e e p , that didn't know
the way.

She had the white Baptist Missionary Society to send m e back to school for two y e a r s . While in the Baptist College
as Matron at Dermott, Arkansas, I received the baptism of the Holy Ghost t h r o u g h Bishop C. H. Mason. I had to leave
the school on account of the baptism of the Holy Ghost. W h e n they put me out, Bishop Mason picked m e u p and said
the Lord sent him to that school to pray out a mother, to p u t over the w o m e n in the Church of God in Christ. In the
year of 1 9 1 1 , under the leadership of the Spirit through our General Overseer, the office of the General Supervisor
w a s created at which time I was appointed to that office.

I began then to organize the Bible Bands in all the local c h u r c h e s of T h e Church of God in Christ. This w a s in 1 9 1 2 .
It w a s my duty to have General supervision over all the w o m e n ' s work, and to organize such activities a s would be
helpful to the work. I w a s to evangelize and systemize the work among the w o m e n . I w a s to appoint from among
the group of Missionaries as State Supervisor endorsed by the State Overseer, such office is k n o w n a s State Mother.
The duty of the State Supervisor is to organize and systematize the work throughout h e r territory. She shall organize
p r a y e r and Bible Bands, Home and Foreign Mission Bands, Sunshine B a n d s , Sewing Circles and the such like; she
shall be subject to the O v e r s e e r with whom she may work. The State Supervisor shall see to each auxiliary, m a k e
a report to each Convocation. This is a little sketch of my work in this church.

Sisters, if you will, read your church p a p e r about our organization. The Bible Band h a s been a great a s s e t to the work.
Brother Mason didn't have a t r e a s u r e in the work until we gave him from the Bible Band $ 1 6 8 . 5 0 . We t u r n e d it over
to Elder Mason, he put part of it in the White Banks and the other in the N e g r o e s ' Band and said, "Now, Sister, you
have given me a standing with the b a n k s , now we can build, so w h e n we w e n t back the next y e a r he had the Temple
ready for us to have meetings.

DR. LILLIAN BROOKS COFFEY
(Little Lillian)

From a very young girl Lillian became attentive to and working in the
Church. God had a great work for her to do. She trained under the dynamic
Mother Lizzie Roberson and became her secretary and finally Assistant
National Supervisor. She traveled extensively with both Mother Roberson
and Bishop C. H. Mason.

In 1 9 4 5 , at the passing away of Mother Roberson, she was appointed


National Supervisor by Bishop C. H. Mason, founder. She did a great job
in supporting both the founder and the Church as well as train women
and put t h e m on active duty.

In 1 9 4 4 , she s a w the need for a home for old worn-out Mothers, Missionaries
and W o r k e r s . God blessed h e r efforts and desires and gave her the
Millionaires Mansion, the finest of it's kind, at 154 Arden Park, Detroit,
Michigan. For many y e a r s this grand and magnificent institution stood as
the pride and delight of the women and great asset to the General Church.
By her side w e r e the faithful Dr. Anne L. Bailey, International Assistant;
Dr. Mary A. Davis, Executive Secretary; Mother Jeannie Lou Hunter,
National T r e a s u r e r and many o t h e r s .

Dr. Coffey successfully o p e r a t e d a t h r e e section National Office in Memphis


Temple H e a d q u a r t e r s , and a full-time office and schedule in her home in
Chicago. MOTHER LILLIAN BROOKS COFFEY
Second General Supervisor
In 1 9 5 3 , she, along with h e r d e p a r t m e n t of women, built for Senior Bishop For The Department of Women
C. H. Mason, and his wife, Mrs. Elsie Mason, a lovely ranch home on the Organizer of the Women's International
premises on Mason Street in Memphis, Tennessee. Yes, famous Mason Women's Convention - 1 9 4 5 - 1 9 5 1 - 1 9 6 4
Street which w a s so n a m e d by the city of Memphis in honor of this great
humanitarian and builder.

In 1950, Dr. Coffey had a d r e a m of a Woman's International Convention (annually). She took her plans to Senior Bishop
Mason, who gladly accepted t h e m and granted her request. Truly it proved its worth and yet growing by leaps and
bounds. Bishop S. M. Crouch, of California, made the first invitation to give it a send-off in 1 9 5 1 , and to return to
it's origin every 6th year. This welcome mat has never been taken away, and he has hosted the Convention several
times. Too, it has now been to every large city in the U.S. and many repeats with post trips abroad.

After the Convention in Albany, New York, with post trip to New York World's Fair, she folded her couch and left
the mantle to h e r Assistant Dr. Anne L. Bailey of Detroit, just two years after the passing of Senior Bishop C. H. Mason,
whom she so dearly loved. She willed to Dr. Anne L. Bailey, a great heritage and a high standard set. Because of
the great need and expansion of the Church she added to the work many more State Mothers and dignified the name
with the w o r d s "State S u p e r v i s o r s " , together with, Young Women's Christian Council (YWCC), Mrs. Allie Crutcher
of Detroit, Chairman, Y P W W Chairladies Unit, Mrs. Jennie V. Hearne Of Oklahoma City, Chairman, Light B u r n e r s of
Africa and Dark Areas. Miss Edith Cole of Chicago, Chairman; Volunteer Counsellors (Blood Trailers), Mrs. Jeannie
Lou Hunter of Illinois, Chairman, District Missionaries Unit, Mrs. J. Johnson, of New York, Chairman, Hospitality Group,
Mrs. Mattie McGlothen and Mrs. Elizabeth White, as Chairman and Co-Chairman; Ushers Unit, Mrs. W. Nelson, of
Memphis and Mrs. Regina Lawrence, Chairman and Co-Chairman; Ushers Unit, Mrs. Bertha Polk of Texas, and M.
P. Montgomery of Colorado, as leaders, Editors and Publishers Unit, Mrs. Rose Young Lockett of Kansas as Chairman,
(Pioneer Publishers); Religious Education Personality Club, (REPC), Mrs. Pearl Roberts McCulloun of Indiana, Chairman;
Minister's Wives Circle, Mrs. J. O. Mason of Chicago, Chairman; Bishop's Wives Circle, Mrs. Deborah Patterson of
Tenn., Mrs. E r n e s t i n e Washington of Brooklyn, and Mrs. Sadie Brewer of Conn., as leaders. Stewardess Board, Mrs.
Carrie P. R o b e r t s , of Chicago, Chairman; Church Mothers Unit, Mrs. Birdie Whitehead of Detroit, Chairman, National
Evangelists Unit, Mrs. Retha Herndon of Calif., as Chairman; Secretaries Unit, Mrs. Elizabeth Burwell, now Moore,
as Chairman.

Truly this dynamic leader, old warrior, and pioneer left many footprints on many rings of the "LADDER OF SUCCESS"!

327
DR. ANNE L. BAILEY
Dr. Anne L. Bailey, of Detroit, Michigan, served many, many years as State
Supervisor with much pioneer work in New Jersey, where the State Bishop
yet refuses to let her go. She served as first financial secretary to the first
National Mother, Mrs. Lizzie Woods Roberson until the death of Mother
Roberson. She served faithfully as Assistant International Supervisor to
Dr. Lillian Brooks Coffey, and as Vice-President of the Women's
International Convention until the death of Dr. Coffey in 1964.

She has dug out raw churches in several states, organized women
everywhere, supported pastors and their wives, and families and educated
their children, and taught other women to do this same faithful service
in the church. She sacrificed, traveled with founder Senior Bishop Mason
as companion secretary in his declining years. She took time to counsel,
console, encourage and tell the Gospel story everywhere she went!

It was not easy to pioneer new work in the raw fields for the Church of
God in Christ, since Holiness had been little spoken of among the people
and they just had to get this new experience for themselves in order to
believe it. And too, when a work was fully established and organized and
women working to perfect it, then a pastor was sent to take over and the
raw field was again the only open door.

She worked the states of Washington, D.C, Maryland, New Jersey, and
New York. Joining her in these states were Mother Cox, Mother Fray and
Mother Jackson. In New York, she was joined by the Late Mother Nancy
Gamble of Indiana. In New York, no street meetings were allowed, so they DR. ANNE L. BAILEY
worked in tenant houses, backyards and other sheds and basements. The Third G e n e r a l Supervisor For t h e
people would hang their heads out windows to hear about this powerful D e p a r t m e n t of W o m e n 1 9 6 4 - 1 9 7 5
religion which reflected doctrinal interpretations so different from that they
had ever heard.

Yes, the evangelism was fruitful, and many churches stand today as landmarks of their pioneering hands: Eastern
Shore Church of God in Christ; Salsbury Church of God in Christ, The Mother Church of New Jersey, Old Broom Street
Church of God in Christ, now called Well's Cathedral; Orange New Jersey Church of God in Christ; and the now Kelsey
Temple in Washington, D.C. And in all, she served as Governess to the children of Founder Bishop and Mrs. Charles
Harrison Mason. She rightly deserved the name she is so fondly given by the brethren, "Darling of the Brotherhood."

She became Mrs. John Seth Bailey in 1934. At the passing of Dr. Lillian Brooks Coffey, she was immediately appointed
to take up the banner by Senior Bishop 0. T. Jones, with full consent of the brethren and all the women! The post
of International Supervisor and President of Women's International Convention she held with much dignity and much
progress (1975). Dr. Bailey has served faithfully and peacefully under the administrations of Founder Bishop C. H.
Mason, then the special committee along with Mother Coffey, which was appointed by Bishop Mason Viz: Bishop J.
S. Bailey, Bishop A. B. McEwen, Bishop 0. M. Kelly, The Interim Board, Executive Board, General Board, and Presiding
Bishop J. 0. Patterson, Sr.

Dr. Bailey's work has continued to grow by leaps and bounds. She saw a greater need for other helps in the Church
as the Church has grown rapidly and added the following: Business and Professional Women's Rescue Squad, Mrs.
Josephine Roberson, National Squad Captain; Sunday School Superintendent's Wives Unit, Mrs. Evelyn Williams of
Connecticut, National Leader; National Sunday School Represenatives Unit, Mrs. Ada Gynn Patrick, National
Representative; United Sisters of Charity, Supervisor Mary Hopkins of Detroit, National Leader; National Secretaries
Unit, Mrs. Elizabeth Burwell Moore, of Ohio, National Leader; Junior Missionaries Unit, Miss. Lois Harris and Mrs.
Jeraldine Wright, Chairman; Renewed the Women's Magazine (The COGIC Women), Mrs. Catherine Christie, Editor,
Publisher; and appointed the First National President of the Sewing Circle-Artistic Fingers, Mrs. Pearl Roberts McCullum,
National Leader.

Dr. Anne L. Bailey and her International Bishop (husband) John Seth Bailey are outstanding citizens of Detroit, Michigan
and of God's great kingdom, feeding many hungry mouths and souls, making ways for many "so called" Underdogs,
and supporting great civic and national Church calls. Over their long span of bridges built, many have crossed, many
more are crossing, and yet many more shall ever cross over.

Under the supervision of Dr. Anne L. Bailey, the Women's International Convention spread her wings, and each year
has become greater. She has been instrumental in supporting the Home and Foreign Mission Department by many
thousands annually. Answered and answers many suffering missionary calls both home and foreign. Adds thousands
to the general church need annually, and answers many other untold calls.

Yes, she and her work will ever live as long as the Church lives, and will be ever cherished as long as there is a
woman who lives!
