Bishop Andy C. Lewter Gears Up for Episcopal Training of Eleven New Bishops

In a momentous undertaking for the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship, Bishop Andy C. Lewter of the Hollywood Full Gospel Baptist Cathedral is currently overseeing the rigorous training of eleven candidates poised for elevation to the esteemed position of bishop. Bishop Lewter, entrusted with the vital role of episcopal training, is spearheading this comprehensive program designed to prepare the candidates for their new responsibilities within the church.

These eleven individuals, hailing from diverse corners of the United States, have embarked on a transformative journey that will culminate at the 2024 Annual Conference in New Orleans, LA, where they will be considered for elevation. The candidates, selected for their exemplary leadership, spiritual insight, and dedication to the church, are engaged in intensive training sessions spanning the months of November, December, and January.

The training program, a collaborative effort with the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship under the leadership of Bishop Joseph Walker of Nashville, TN, is a testament to the commitment of the church to cultivate and empower new leaders. Bishop Lewter, recognized for his dynamic leadership at the Hollywood Full Gospel Baptist Cathedral, brings his wealth of experience to the forefront in guiding these aspiring bishops.

The candidates’ training sessions are being held at two prestigious institutions: Beulah Heights Bible University in Atlanta, GA, and Xavier University in New Orleans, LA. These locations were chosen not only for their academic excellence but also for the spiritual and historical significance they bring to the training experience.

As part of the rigorous evaluation process, the candidates will face a panel of bishops tasked with examining their theological acumen, pastoral skills, and leadership capabilities. The examination will include a comprehensive 200-question test designed to assess the candidates’ depth of knowledge and readiness for the responsibilities that come with the episcopal role.

“We are witnessing a moment of great significance for our church as these candidates undergo a transformative training experience,” remarked Bishop Andy C. Lewter. “Their journey is not only about personal growth but also about how they will contribute to the continued success and expansion of our fellowship.”

The Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship has a rich history of nurturing leaders who have made significant contributions to the church and society at large. The training of these eleven candidates reflects the church’s commitment to ensuring that its leadership remains strong, capable, and equipped to address the evolving needs of the community.

As the candidates immerse themselves in this intensive training program, the anticipation for the 2024 Annual Conference grows. The Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship looks forward to welcoming a new cohort of bishops, ready to carry the torch of spiritual leadership and contribute to the fellowship’s ongoing legacy of excellence.
