Bishop Joe Pennel (retired) was the speaker of the evening and offered a powerful message to the Conference membership and guests at the Sunday evening service. "One thing that really stood out to me from tonight's sermon was when Bishop Pennel said 'A vital congregation is one that practices the means of grace.' That is one of the few times I have heard the term 'vital congregation' defined, and I believe that Bishop Pennel's definition is a good one," said Rev. Brad Smith, clergy.
