Hundreds of Members of the African Methodist Episcopal Church Gather in Ozark for Annual Conference.
OZARK -- Members of more than 75 African Methodist Episcopal churches within the 9th Episcopal District are gathering in Ozark through Saturday.
They will be hosting their annual Southeast Conference at the Flowers Center and Ozark Civic Center. The conference gives the churches a chance to meet with their presiding bishop, share reports and get evangelism training.
The week kicked off on Wednesday with the Women's Missionary Society met on Wednesday in the Ozark Civic Center.
Church leaders said the conference is more than just reports and fellowship.
"We learn from each other too," Bishop James L. Davis said. "We learn from one church to the next, what other churches' methods are using and we can implore those methods."
