Bishop R.E. Howard, general overseer, will serve as host and special speaker.
The theme for the meeting is “The Forward Look and Spiritual Uplift.”
The G.A.E. is coordinated by Bishop Damous McGee from Broken Arrow, Okla.
McGee, assisted by the late Bishop Willie Boone, organized the G.A.E. in 2004.
The G.A.E. was designed to maintain contact, fellowship, interaction and renewal between colleagues, McGee said.
At the first meeting, 43 people registered with delegates from several states and the Virgin Islands.
Jack Wilkinson Jr. from Cleveland was appointed treasurer at the first meeting. Dr. Raymond Pruitt from Mississippi served as the recording secretary.
In the 2005 meeting, the Emergency/ Assistance Fund was organized to provide assistance during difficult times for G.A.E. members, pastors, evangelists and for any minister, as funds are available.
Thousands of dollars have been distributed by the board of directors, who are elected and rotated beginning with the chairman.
The present board of directors consists of Wilkinson, chairman; McGee, vice chairman; Eugene Weakly of Tennessee; W.E. Johnson of Mississippi; and Tommy Queener of Florida.
