A concern of many Women In Ministry are interested in electing another "Female Bishop" such as Presiding Elder Carolyn Guindry of the 5th Episcopal District, because of her administrative abilities as an Elder and vision of expansion for the church. And with the team efforts of Bishop McKenzie and Candidate Guindry would be more of a viable asset to our church.
