SANFORD–School Board Chairman Shawn Williams, who was also Pastor of Fair Promise AME Zion Church, one of the oldest AME Zion churches in Lee County, has left the Conference after being reassigned by the Bishop a week ago.  Williams made it through Conference re-assignments in November but was reassigned to a smaller church in Harnett County last week.  Williams told WWGP news Monday that after prayerfully considering the matter, he decided not to accept the new assignment and to start his own church.  He said he preached his final sermon at Fair Promise last week, and Sunday, preached at a facility in Broadway.  He said he is looking for space  large enough to  accommodate his afterschool program.  Williams is a candidate for re-election to the Board of Education.

More local news can be heard Monday through Friday on WWGP 1050 and Classic Hits & Oldies.
