Greetings in the Name of Mission
and Service

​Mrs. Connie Richardson

I give praise to our Lord and Savior for allowing me this opportunity to serve as the Central Conference Women’s Missionary Society President.

We give thanks to the dynamic leadership of the Central Conference, Rev. Hartford (Bernice) Lee, Presiding Elder & Consultant of the Daytona Beach District; Rev. Henry L. (Beverly) Postell, II, Presiding Elder of the North Orlando District and Rev. Valarie J. Walker, Presiding Elder of the Orlando District, our Pastors, Missionary Sisters and our Young People for your love and commitment to Mission.

We believe that as Missionaries we have been called to be change agents in our churches and communities. The word asked us to be our brothers and sisters keeper; to feed the hungry, clothe the naked and to minister to the disenfranchised. Today, we strive also to address the issues of homelessness and domestic violence.

The Central Conference Women’s Missionary Society is comprised of 60 local societies, throughout 12 Counties; it is the work from these Societies that give life to the Mission work in our various communities.  We are grateful for the work of the Area Chairs who help the conference to spread the good news of Missions. Our Conference is divided into seven Areas: The Daytona Beach District – The Lillie M. Pickett Area – Yvette Hill, Area Chair; The Mary L. Jennings Area – Tonya Lewis, Area Chair; The Morse-Tucker Area – LaShandra Abel-Tucker, Area Chair. The North Orlando District – The Laura Sampson Area – Diane Peeples, Area Chair; The L.R. Randall Area – Eddie Ishman-Davis, Area Chair; The Orlando District – The Jessie D. Smith Area – Nicie Nedd, Area Chair.  

As we enter this Quadrennial 2015 - 2019 we have been given the task from Romans 12:1-5; to “Transform Lives, Build Communities, and Impact the World”; it is our prayer that the Lord will pour out His Spirit and empower us to be the Missionaries that will change lives. To be the hands and feet to transcend the lives of men, women and children in our homes, churches, communities and the world at large.   

The Central Conference Women’s Missionary Society is on a Mission that has been ordained by God to be Intentional about the Ministry of Mission and with God’s help, we will be Victorious!!! 

[In closing, on behalf of the Officers and Missionaries of the Central Conference Women’s Missionary Society we are ready and willing to serve the people. “To God Be the Glory.”​​

​Bettye J. Ivey
​Conference President
