Terrell L. Murphy, senior pastor of New Birth-Charlotte, will become a bishop Oct. 16.


The Global Apostolic Council is ordaining Murphy during a ceremony at 6:30 p.m. at New Birth Cathedral, 17001 New Birth Drive in Huntersville. The event is free and open to the public.


Bishop Eddie L. Long, senior pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta and the first presiding bishop of GAC, is leading the consecration of Murphy as the second presiding bishop.


Murphy says he is humbled Long would appoint him.


“The appointment of the office of bishop is a tremendous honor,” Murphy said in a statement. “The Global Apostolic Council is a cohesive organization with a goal to bring visible impact to major initiatives nationally and internationally within the Christian community. While the GAC has a global focus, it will also serve greater Charlotte through a variety of initiatives that support the local church.”


New Birth-Charlotte opened in 2003. The church is an extension of the New Birth church in Georgia.


“To know that an internationally respected faith leader like Bishop Long would see in me qualities of a bishop and support me in moving forth at this level of representation for the church is unexplainable,” Murphy added.
