Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International is the largest African-American Baptist denomination with over 800 affiliate Churches across the globe. Bishop Walker began his pastorate at the then Mt. Zion in 1992 with 175 members. He was selected to succeed the founding International Presiding Bishop Paul S.
