The Executive Committee of the CCOCM expresses thanks for Bettye Lewis’ leadership over eight years in the conference office. Bettye’s ministry in the Tennessee Annual Conference included local church leadership as well as district and conference leadership. Her hard work at all levels within the conference is a credit to her commitment to and faith in Jesus Christ.
The Executive Committee in appreciation for Bettye’s service has nominated her for an Order of Saint Andrew Award. The Order of Saint Andrew, in addition to recognizing excellent leadership within the Tennessee Annual Conference, provides scholarships for students wishing to pursue pastoral ministry.
In addition to a lovely luncheon with conference staff, Bettye was recognized and honored at Warmth in Winter by 2400 youth and adults this January as well as at the 5th Sunday Service with the Tennessee Conference Black Methodist for Church Renewal (BMCR) at Gordon Memorial UMC.
