We are extremely proud to announce that during the 50th Session of the General Conference of the African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church, three graduates of Turner Theological Seminary were elected as Bishops in the A.M.E. Church.

The three were elected during the 50th Quadrennial Session of the General Conference of the A.M.E. Church, held July 5 – 13, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Each Bishop graduated from Turner Seminary as follows: Bishop Mitchell is from the class of 1986, Bishop Brailsford is from the class of 1983 and Bishop Wicker is from the class of 1991. They each were serving as Pastors in the Eleventh, Seventh, and Sixth Episcopal Districts respectively.

To each new Bishop, Turner Theological Seminary offers a heartfelt congratulations and best regards as you begin your new ministries in the A.M.E. Church. God Bless you all.
