Thousands Attend Church Conference Bringing $1.5 Mil to Mtgy.
The African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church is holding several conferences lasting ten days. The event is drawing thousands of people from across the world and bringing millions of dollars to the city.
"We travel to a lot of conventions," says Inez Pennington. "They ask us to come and set up our hats and jewelry, shoes and whatever."
Three thousand members, clergy and missionaries from across the world are attending the conference and are stopping by the booths between schedule events.
The city of Montgomery competed against other cities to win this conference. In past years, it's been held in Charlotte, North Carolina, Dallas, Texas and Houston, Texas.
