The American-founded African Methodist Episcopal Church's 14th district covers Benin, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Togo. It has a significant presence in Nigeria,[1] the bishop of the 14th district is since July 2016 Bishop E. Earl McCloud, Jr. from United States.[2]


In Nigeria, the rise of Boko Haram has displaced churches of the AME Zion denomination and threatened their viability.[3]
