Charlotte pastor runs for A.M.E Zion bishop in 2024

Reverend Dwayne A. Walker, of Little Rock A.M.E Zion Church in Charlotte, is running for bishop of the African Methodist Epsicopal Zion Church in 2024. 

A bishop, Walker told QCity Metro, is the highest position in the AME Zion denomination. 

Bishops are responsible for assigning pastors to churches, determining the direction of the denomination.

The church has more than a million members worldwide and is headquartered in Charlotte.

The road to running

Walker, who is on his third campaign, is running for one of four available positions that opened because three bishops are retiring and one bishop passed away. 

He is running against 12 other candidates from around the country, and is one of two pastors to run from North Carolina.
