Subject: Strong leadership, moral leadership

Offering leadership in these trying times.  Together.
Bishop W. Darin Moore of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church preaches at the opening of the 2017 Christian Unity Gathering in Silver Spring, Maryland.  Bishop Moore is the leader of the Mid-Atlantic Episcopal District of the A.M.E. Zion Church, and is now the Governing Board Chair of the National Council of Churches.
Strong, moral leadership

Bishop Moore has brought exemplary leadership to the National Council of Churches and has been key to its revitalization.  He was elected Governing Board Chair in November, having served as the NCC Vice-Chair for two years prior. Before that, he served as chair of the Finance Committee, in which role he restored fiscal health and discipline to the Council. This was a monumental task which required many hours of work and delicate diplomacy. Bishop Moore accomplished this with grace and tact. 
Not only a strong administrative leader, Bishop Moore showed moral courage when he was arrested with other clergy members protesting against the recent tax bill. On his own Facebook page he stated, “At 11 a.m. today I was arrested at the US Senate Office Building as I engaged in a non-violent protest through prayer and reading Scripture.” 

The post included images of a restrained Moore being escorted out of the building by Capitol Police along with a quote from the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King: “There comes a time when silence is betrayal.”

The National Council of Churches is strong.

The National Council of the Churches of Christ in the U.S.A. is the oldest and largest ecumenical organization in the country. The A.M.E. Zion Church is a founding member of the NCC, which was founded in 1908 and first known as the Federal Council of Churches.
