Ms. Pat Hinds of the Diocese of Dallas is the Province VII DOK president.
More than 70 women from around the province are expected to attend the assembly. The Glory Bound Singers are Daughters from the Diocese of Texas who also will participate in the Sunday, April 24, worship at St. Christopher’s at 10:30 am. Non-daughters are welcomed to attend, but must register and pay their fees.
“Daughters of the King are women and girls between the ages of seven and one hundred and seven who desire a closer walk with the Lord. We are Christian women, both lay and ordained, who are strengthened through the discipline of a Rule of Life, and supported through the companionship of our sisters. We are all at different stages of our Christian journey – some have just begun and some have been on this path for a long time. But no matter where we are on our sacred journeys, our primary goal is the same – to know Jesus Christ and to make Him known to other,” according to the web site of DOK
