Second Episcopal District Welcomes President, Brother Dwight Patterson

March 26th, 2018 by


Proverbs 11:14 (NLT)- Without wise leadership, a nation (organization) falls; there is safety in having many (wise) advisers (executive board).

The Second Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church is happy to welcome Brother Dwight Patterson as its new president to complete the term of Sister Valerie Bell. The District congratulates Sister Bell on being elected President of the Global Connectional Lay Organization.

Brother Patterson pledges to bring continuity to the presidency as he seeks God’s Guidance and grace. He is humbled by the honor to serve the Second District as it moves through the many challenges that face congregations from Western North Carolina to Maryland. He is quite familiar with the expectations of the position having served as First Vice President for many years.

The African Methodist Episcopal Church faces many adversities of unprecedented scope, but we know that the Church of Allen will endure as long as its constituents remember the bridges over which God has successfully brought them. Brother Patterson possesses a caring and God- centered spirit, and he believes that the main objective of the Lay , that of teaching and training, but with an intergenerational approach will strengthen the church of the future. It is with this profound belief that Brother Patterson will lead the Lay Organization. Added to the executive board are:

First Vice President………………………Sister Adrienne Warren

Second Vice President…………………Brother Woodrow Winchester

Third Vice President……………………Sister Maria Warren

Young Adult Representative………..Brother Donte Foote

Brother Dwight Patterson with the executive board anticipate a successful year supporting the programs of Bishop James Levert Davis, as the organization works to make the Second Episcopal District First for Christ and Second to None.

Ephesians: 6:10-11 (KJ) – Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil.
