Church Announcement: Rev. Frank M. Reid III, The Next AME Church Bishop!
Reader the Rev. Frank M. Reid III, one who has used his religious clout to climb the ranks of popularity among Baltimore City’s Black church community, is the senior pastor of the widely recognized Bethel AME Church, located on Druid Hill Avenue in West Baltimore. As the African Methodist Episcopal Church celebrates its 50th Quadrennial Session of the General Conference and Bicentennial, Reid is a candidate for Bishop in the church.
“God just made it clear to me that I was called to run for Episcopal service, and if I get elected I will go where the [AME] church sends me and will give the church good day’s service, Reid told the AFRO. “If I don’t get elected, I’ll come back to Bethel and grow Bethel to even greater heights.”
Reid’s campaign theme promotes sound and effective leadership, particularly in Baltimore City. He has resided in Baltimore for 28 years.
