MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Church of God in Christ (COGIC) will celebrate its 113th Holy Convocation by hosting a virtual worship experience via the COGIC website, COGIC social media app, and cable TV. This virtual gathering of nearly a half-million viewers will occur November 10-14, 2021.
“The Church Of God In Christ is thoroughly excited for our annual spiritual gathering, known as the Holy Convocation. Although we were looking forward to returning to our Headquarters city of Memphis, TN, we decided to host the 2021 convocation in a virtual format, out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health and safety of our constituents. We recognize that while the COVID-19 pandemic is not yet safely behind us, we must continue the work of the Lord. We are determined to do just that,” said J. Drew Sheard, Presiding Bishop of the Church of God in Christ, Inc.
For the Church of God in Christ, the Holy Convocation is always an exuberant time of praise and worship unto the Lord. This year’s meeting will be no exception, albeit virtual. The week will include various services to highlight some of COGIC’s most prominent teachers, preachers, singers and talent. The Impact Network will air the Official Convocation Address by Presiding Bishop J. Drew Sheard on Sunday, November 14 at 5:00 pm EST. Special gospel musical guests throughout the week will include Tamela Mann, Jekalyn Carr, J.J. Hairston, Kathy Taylor and Dr. Myron Williams, International President of the COGIC Music Department.
