Hood Theological Seminary will host its annual Endowment Convocation on Wednesday, Feb. 10, at 7 p.m. in the Aymer Center on the seminary campus. The public is welcome to attend.

At this special convocation each year, the bishops of the 12 Episcopal districts of the AME Zion Church conduct a moving and inspiring service at the seminary and bring collections from their Episcopal districts for Hood’s permanently restricted endowment. Last year, a record-breaking total of more than $175,000 was brought forth during the convocation for the seminary’s restricted endowment.

Dr. Vergel Lattimore, president of Hood, encourages all Zionites, friends and supporters of the seminary to attend this year’s convocation and to participate in its joyous fellowship.

Bishop Michael A. Frencher of the Eastern West Africa Episcopal District will be this year’s convocation preacher. He is a graduate of the University of Detroit in 1976 with a bachelor of science degree. He received his M.Div. degree from Hood Theological Seminary in 1981 and his D.Min. in 1992 from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. Frencher was elevated to the episcopacy in 2012 from Trinity AME Zion Church, Greensboro, as the 101st bishop in succession.

Hood Theological Seminary, located at 1810 Lutheran Synod Drive in Salisbury, is a graduate and professional school where intellectual discourse and ministerial preparation occur in tandem within the framework of a community of faith. Sponsored by the AME Zion Church, its student body comprises persons from many different denominations. Hood’s mission is to provide an educational community in which Christian maturity and ministerial preparation take place together.
