Deacons Make History
On Friday, June 6, 2008, the Western North Carolina Annual Conference commissioned the largest class of probationary deacons in the history of the conference and potentially the denomination. Six of the eight probationers are graduates of the MCE program of Pfeiffer University and seven participated in the Center for Deacon Education partnership with Wesley Seminary. This class represents the "first fruits" of the partnership that was created in Jan 2006.
