When Bishop Vashti Murphy McKenzie was elected Bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, she became the first woman elected to this position in the denomination’s 232-year history. Now, she is working to empower other women.

On November 21-23, 2019, McKenzie will host the Selah Leadership Encounter for Women in Dallas. She calls it “a community of women that want to resource other women.” She encourages woman of all ages to attend the event, because sometimes to see how far you can go you just need a little inspiration.

Speakers include, Becky Davis, Pinky Cole, Dr. Cynthia Hale, and Erica Campbell. Visit to register or see dates for upcoming events.
