Our Bishop W. Ron Sailor Sr. was consecrated as Bishop
March of 2008. He came to Christ the King when we were a small group of
sincere believers, who founded and maintained the church and its mission.
Under his leadership, Christ the King has been blessed to add thousands
to its membership rolls and blessed the lives of many others.
Our Bishop is a native of Atlanta whose entire academic, pastoral and
professional career spans over 36 years. He is a much travelled preacher
of the gospel whose approachable spirit and down-to-earth teaching has
been a blessing to the many thousands who have been in his presence or
have met him via television.
As a veteran television, radio and newspaper commentator, Bishop Sailor
has been awarded the highest honors of his profession. He is a seven-time
winner of the EMMY award for his outstanding performance in television.
On three occasions he was named the outstanding television commentator
in the Southeastern United States. Bishop Sailor was the first African-American
to serve as commentator for the evening news for a major southern television
station, when he served in that capacity with WSB-TV Channel 2. He was
also the first African-American to host an afternoon television program
in Atlanta, when he hosted the “Backtalk” program on WXIA-Television.
Most recently he was consecrated to the Office of Bishop by Bishop Paul
S. Morton and other clergy from around the nation.
Bishop Sailor resides in Buford, GA along with his wife, Rev. Marion Sailor.
He is the father of 4 sons and 2 daughters.
