“We are pleased and delighted to host the Sixth Episcopal District’s CME Leadership Conference,” stated Brandon Brown, Vice President of Institutional Advancement at the College, “Bestowing leadership within our youth is critical in their development as good stewards of the community and our nation”.

Paine College was founded by the leadership of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, now United Methodist Church, and the Colored Methodist Episcopal Church, now Christian Methodist Episcopal Church.
