Zoe Association International

The Association was founded in 1991 by Bishop Frank L. Stewart in Los Angeles, California. In January 2016, Pastor Edward A. Smith became the presiding Bishop of the Zoe Association.


Historically, the Zoe Association was composed of pastors of churches; however, under the leadership of Bishop Smith, we have broadened our reach to include other non-church ministry leaders, business leaders, and individuals who desire to impact this world for Christ's Kingdom Purpose, far beyond what we could do by ourselves.
