The polity they operate with is episcopal. It was founded by Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr. in 1994. Bishop Joseph W. Walker, III is the current Presiding Bishop. The FGBCF has an Executive Council, a Bishops Council, and several Auxiliary Bishops. The FGBCF has an annual 6 in 1 Conference that convenes in various locations (Atlanta, Georgia; New Orleans, Louisiana) typically in July.
