The African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church has a new bishop, George Crenshaw, an American national, who was presented on Sunday to the faithful of this congregation in Luanda.
With the nomination of this prelate in last August by the college for a term of four years renewable for the same period, it reaches the number 103 in the line of bishops of this church.
George Crenshaw, replacing in office George Batler, is now the new head of the Episcopal Conference South Central, composed by Angola, South Africa, India and Zimbabwe.
The bishop said that during his mandate he will continue the ongoing projects in Malanje for example, with the construction of two schools, the episcopal residence and the headquarters building in Luanda.
He informed that his church will work hard in order to help the state to minimize increasingly the problem of poverty and early and unwanted pregnancies in adolescents, realities found in the provinces of Cuanza Norte and Malanje.
