Jamal Harrison Bryant (born May 21, 1971) is an African-American pastor, as of February 2008, of the Empowerment Temple AME Church in Baltimore, Maryland in the U.S. He is the son of Bishop John Richard Bryant and Rev. Cecilia Williams-Bryant, the latter of whom, as of this date, is an official of the 4th District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. The younger Bryant is a graduate of Morehouse College and of Duke Divinity School.
He earned a MA of Divinity degree from Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. In 2005, he received his Doctorate of Ministry degree from the unaccredited Graduate Theological Foundation. In 1988, Bryant spent a year in West Africa in what he calls his "Damascus Road experience."
Officials of the AME denomination intended, as of February, 2008, to enter into discussions regarding Bryant's leadership, following mutual filings for divorce by Bryant, and spouse and fellow Hampton alumnus Gizelle Bryant.
In February 2008, both of the Bryants, Jamal and Gizelle, a fellow Hampton University graduate, are described in a reliable published account as having mutually filed for divorce, "[h]e… seeking a 'limited divorce,' while his wife has requested an 'absolute divorce,' according to papers filed in Baltimore Circuit Court." They have 3 daughters.
