BISHOP POWEL ELEVATED TO PRESIDENT
OF THE BOARD OF BISHOPS
Bishop Staccato Powell, recently took the helm as president of the Board of Bishops of the 1.4 million-member AME Zion Church. In a heart-warming ceremony on Wednesday, February 12, 2020, the native of Hallsboro, North Carolina, stood before the auspicious gathering to accept the president's gavel from past-president Bishop Dennis Proctor. Many Zionites, friends and family attended the ceremony held at the Marriott in downtown Birmingham, Alabama. Bishops from across the United States and Africa were on hand for the event.
Powell, a Granite Bay, California resident, was flanked by his children, son Rev. Dr. Staccato K. Powell, and daughter, Missionary Supervisor Nicole Powell. The Powells painted a picture of elegance and love as the children gently wiped the tears of joy from their father's face. Powell's comments reflected his sincerity when he said, "It’s humbling to occupy the pinnacle privilege at such a seminal moment in time, I look forward to serving the denomination in this new leadership capacity propelling Zion into a new decade of service and kingdom building.”
