Reverend Dwayne A. Walker of Little Rock AME 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 and determining the direction of the denomination.

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

The way to run

Walker, who is in his third campaign, is running for one of four available positions that have become vacant because three bishops are retiring and one bishop has died.

He is up against 12 other candidates from across the country and is one of two pastors running from North Carolina.
