On Saturday, April 9th, Religious Leaders from across the country gathered at Mt. Vernon Missionary Baptist Church to Celebrate the Apostolic Succession of Kenneth Adkins to the office of Bishop of The Lord’s Church.
International Presiding Prelate of The Independent Church Fellowship of Covenant Churches, Bishop Terrance Calloway, administered the Charge to Bishop Kenneth Adkins after a vote was taken in an earlier private ceremony that included a College of Bishops from the Fellowship and Churches from around the Country. Bishop Adkins Episcopal Catechism certifications were issued by Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches. The Newly Consecrated Bishop will attend the College of Bishops in Cleveland Ohio in March 2017. Following the Sacred Ceremony, hundreds of friends, family, clergy, business and political leaders gathered to celebrate at Bishop’s Kenneth Adkins Banquet which was also held at Greater Mt. Vernon Church.
