From Wikipedia

Marshall Gilmore, the 41st bishop of the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, was born in Hoffman, North Carolina, January 4, 1931. From infancy, his early Christian nurture was within the bosom of the Pleasant Hill CME Church family. Upon his hearing and answering the call to preach, his home church granted license on January 2, 1954 – two days short of his 23rd birthday. The North Carolina Annual Conference admitted him on trial in 1955, and in the same year, Bishop William Yancy Bell ordained him deacon. The following year Bishop Bell ordained him elder.
