In an effort to assist Rev. Bobby R. Best as he aspires to the distinguished office of bishop in the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church in the General Conference in June 2006, the Committee to Elect Rev. Best is sponsoring a black-tie gala at the McNeill Ballroom in the Anderson Center on the campus of Winston-Salem State University on Sat., Nov. 20 at 5:30 p.m.

...
Best has served as pastor in the CME Church for about 20 years.Nine of those years have been at St. John CME Church in Winston-Salem.This praying, humble, compassionate and God-fearing leader spurred a new enthusiastic hope within St. John.This new hope generated a new spirit of unity among the members, which led to the accomplishment of many goals that benefited, not only the church, but the community as well.
The new ministries which begun under his administration at St. John include: the alcohol/drug ministry, the audiovisual ministry, a renamed class leader system, Children's Church, a clothing closet, computer lab, liturgical dance groups, an emergency food pantry, a gardening club, the Methodist Men's Group, the Methodist Men's Choir, an orchestra, a prison ministry, a Boy Scout troop, a senior citizens organization, Shepherd's Kitchen (an outreach to the homeless after worship service), a spiritual renewal organization and a women's ministry.
During the nine years that Best has been in Winston-Salem, he has held, served on, currently holds, or is serving on the following boards: first vice president of the Winston-Salem and Vicinity Interdenominational Ministers' Conference, vice president of the Winston Lake YMCA board of managers, Crisis Control board, AIDS Care Services board, Urban League board, United Campus Ministry board, Today's Woman Health and Wellness Center advisory board, and Hold Out the Lifeline board (works to reduce infant mortality).
He is also a member of the N.C. Council of Churches, the NAACP, the African-American Focus Group and the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity.
Best and St. John have received several community awards for their outstanding service to the community.On May 15, 2003, the pastor and the church were recognized at the sixth annual Black Achievers in Business and Industry Awards Gala for helping raise more than $50,000 for two elementary schools in the Boston community.In 2001 Best received the Winston-Salem Human Relations Commission's Humanitarian Award.The mayor presented Best the award.
Because of his outstanding leadership in the church and the community, Best was among 10 Christian Methodist Episcopal Church pastors recognized during the Phillips School of Theology's eighth annual Pastors Conference in Atlanta, Ga., Jan. 5-8, 2003.
Much of Best's success can be attributed to God's favor on his life and his educational preparation, which began in Wilson, N.C., where he was born to the late A.D. and Helen Summerville Best.He graduated from Ralph L. Fike Senior High School.He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a bachelor of science degree in business administration with a concentration in personnel management.He was awarded a master of divinity degree from Duke University, where he graduated with honors (cum laude).He is pursuing a doctorate of ministry at the Interdenominational Theological Center - Phillips School of Theology in Atlanta.
