Were you aware that never, in the history of Fond du Lac, has there been female bishop (that we can find) and specifically not an African-American Woman Bishop? Yet, with your support, when consecrated as Bishop, Pastor Beverly Haywood will become the first and only African-American Female Bishop in Fond du Lac, WI.
A consecration is a sacred ceremony where God sets aside a person, before his people, to complete his work at a particular level of ministry. In this case, Pastor Beverly A. DeShazer-Haywood elevated to the Episcopacy, as a Bishop by the UFCCM (United Fellowship of Christian Churches and Ministries-World-Wide) right here in the city of Fond du Lac, WI.
Given the significance of all of this, Bread of Life Cathedral of Hope would like to honor God by hosting this beautiful celebration here in Fond du Lac and to do so, we ask for your support.
Beverly Haywood has been a pastor for over 20 years of ministry in the City of Fond du Lac. She has been profiled in several FDL Reporter articles inclusive of one titled “A Measure of Success” where her work as a pastor here in FDL was of focus and praised. At the humble behest of her husband (Bishop H.D. Haywood, Sr.) Pastor Bev (as she is lovingly called) will be taking on her maiden name "DeShazer" as her official Episcopal Title and Name Designation in honor of/and as a legacy to her father the Late Rev. Dr. J.R. DeShazer, and to the memory of her Uncle; Pastor James DeShazer and her Brother; Elder Ray DeShazer.
You can help make this possible by becoming a supporter of the Bishop-Elect Beverly A. DeShazer's (Haywood) Consecration Fundraiser. Your support will go towards the expenses accrued to make such an event possible. So we welcome your pledge towards this joyous occasion as we prepare faithfully.

The biblical word "Episcopal" in general terms mean; overseer, superintendent and bishop; respectively. The "Office Of Bishop" 1 Timothy 3:1-13 sets the qualification of a Bishop. *Special note: "man, and one wife" mentioned in the passage; in the context of the scripture, is a product of the tradition and culture of the time marginalizing women, woman and slaves were viewed as property, none of which was the Will of God.
Please take time to view the six-minute video (clips) from our 2011 UFCCM Episcopal Consecration of four (4) Bishop-elects. The Episcopal Consecration and Investiture it is a sacred imagery of celebration ordained by God to overseer churches, pastors and specific regions of the world. The Sacred Service of Consecration transforms the Servant of God into a Bishop before the eyes of People of God.
The budget range and purpose(s) may seem a bit unfamiliar to most, however, it has been set at a bare base low to mid range in order to be economical but realistic in our responsibilities and national assessments set by the UFCCM.
Like all things, there are cost involving certification and to the certifiers. It is no different with an ordination of any high level official or clergy person.
The presider and co-presiders are customarily compensated with an appropriate level gratuity for their time, qualifications and professional expectations.
There will be one Chief consecrator and two co-consecrators. It is customary to submit a $500 - $1,000 gratuity to the Chief Consecrator, and $200 - $500 to the co-consecrator respectively.
Like a wedding guest are blessed with a dinner at the expense of the Bride and Groom. It is no different in this case as we (Christians) are the bride of Christ. We have secured the Radisson Hotel (Conference Center and Banquet Hall for the dinner. The cost is $200 per person = $2,000
Funds that are received in access of the budget will be used as a gift to the new Bishop. This, much in the same way that a new married couple receives funds for their wedding, gifts items and monetary.
