This is an interesting story from Jamaica: Rev Sarah Frances Davis was appointed as the bishop of 16th District of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) denomination, whose jurisdiction will include churches in Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, Barbados, the Virgin Islands, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Guyana, Suriname, London and Holland.
According to the article,
Before she became a clergywoman, Davis was on an accelerated climb to the top of the corporate ladder. She holds an undergraduate degree in mathematics and a master’s in management science. Davis was working in the telecommunications field and earning an attractive salary. But, there was uneasiness in her life… She entered the pastorate in 1991 after completing her masters. She was made a bishop in 2004 and assigned to the 18th Episcopal District of the AME…She was listed by Ebony magazine as one of the 50 Most Intriguing Persons of 2004.
I would love to know how Bishop Davis has used her technical education in her job.
