A large part of his life was spent giving his spare time to the community as a volunteer and member of many non-profit organizations (more than 20), in which he got involved as a member of boards with titles of director, Vice-President and President. Also, sitting at round tables of social comity for the community's well-being in different aspects regarding health, social and most importantly, their primary necessity.
He was appointed chaplain on July 30th, 2011, because he has credentials that add to his life experiences and studies. He is a professional outreach worker who worked for seven years as a Travailleur de Rue (Street Outreach Worker) at the Centre d'Intervention et Prevention en Toxicomanie de l'Outaouais.

Archbishop In Christian denominations, an archbishop via Latin archiepiscopus, from Greek αρχιεπίσκοπος, from αρχι-, 'chief', and επί 'over'+σκοπος 'seer') is a bishop of higher rank, the title is borne by the leader of the denomination. Episcopal sees are generally arranged in groups in which one sees bishop has certain powers and duties of oversight over the others. He is known as the metropolitan archbishop of that see. In the Catholic Church, canon 436 of the Code of Canon Law indicates what these powers and duties are for a Latin Church metropolitan archbishop, while those of the head of an autonomous (sui iuris) Eastern Catholic Churches are indicated in canon 157 of the Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches. All Catholic metropolitans are archbishops, but not all archbishops are metropolitans, though most are. In many organizations like the pentecostal elect a Bishop President, we like to let the term president to a company and use a more church title.
A bishop an English derivation from the New Testament Greek ἐπίσκοπος, epískopos, "overseer", "guardian" is an ordained or consecrated member of the Christian clergy who is generally entrusted with a position of authority and oversight. Within the church, bishops are seen as those who possess the full priesthood and can ordain clergy – including other bishops.
The term epískopos meaning bishop in Greek, the early language of the Christian Church, was not from the earliest times clearly distinguished from the term presbýteros (literally: "elder" or "senior", origin of the modern English word priest), but the term was already clearly used in the sense of the order or office of bishop, distinct from that of presbyter in the writings of Ignatius of Antioch (died 108 CE), and sources from the middle of the 2nd century undoubtedly set forth that all the chief centres of Christianity recognized and had the office of bishop, using a form of organization that remained universal until the Protestant Reformation.
The earliest organization of the Church in Jerusalem was, according to most scholars, similar to that of Jewish synagogues, but it had a council or college of ordained presbyters (Greek: πρεσβύτεροι elders, priests). In Acts 11:30 and Acts 15:22, we see a collegiate system of government in Jerusalem chaired by James the Just, according to tradition the first bishop of the city. In Acts 14:23, the Apostle Paul ordains presbyters in churches in Anatolia.
Often, the word presbyter was not yet distinguished from overseer (ἐπίσκοπος episkopos, later used exclusively to mean bishop), as in Acts 20:17, Titus 1:5,7 and 1 Peter 5:1. The earliest writings of the Apostolic Fathers, the Didache and the First Epistle of Clement, for example, show the church used two terms for local church offices—presbyters (seen by many as an interchangeable term with episcopos or overseer) and deacon.

This does not mean that the episcopate, in the sense of the holder of the order or office of bishop, must have developed only later, or have been plural, because in each church the college or presbyter-overseers (also called "presbyter-bishops") did not exercise an independent supreme power; it was subject to the Apostles or to their delegates. An explanation suggests that the delegates were bishops in the actual sense of the term, but that they did not possess fixed sees nor had they a special title. Since they were essentially itinerant, they confided to the care of some of the better educated and highly respected converts the fixed necessary functions relating to the daily life of the community.
In Timothy and Titus in the New Testament a more clearly defined episcopate can be seen. We are told that Paul had left Timothy in Ephesus and Titus in Crete to oversee the local church (1Tim 1:3 and Titus 1:5). Paul commands them to ordain presbyters/bishops and to exercise general oversight, telling Titus to "rebuke with all authority" (Titus 2:15).
Early sources are not clear but various groups of Christian communities may have had the bishop surrounded by a group or college functioning as leaders of the local churches. Eventually the head or "monarchic" bishop came to rule more clearly, and all local churches would eventually follow the example of the other churches and structure themselves after the model of the others with the one bishop in clearer charge, though the role of the body of priests remained important.
Eventually, as Christendom grew, bishops no longer directly served individual congregations. Instead, the bishop appointed priests to minister to each congregation, acting as the bishop's delegates.
An archbishop is the Supreme Bishop of the Eric Michel Ministries Int'l and is elected by the General Assembly of the Church. He is the Chief Executive Officer of the Church. He also holds an important pastoral role being the Spiritual Head and Chief Pastor of the Church. He has precedence of honour and prominence of position among and is recognized to have primacy, over other bishops.

EMMI polity is a hierarchical form of church governance ("ecclesiastical polity") in which the chief local authorities are bishops. (The word "bishop" derives, via the Vulgar Latin ebiscopus, from the Ancient Greek επίσκοπος epískopos meaning "overseer".) It is the structure used by many of the major Christian churches and denominations, such as Catholic, Eastern, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican and Lutheran churches or denominations, as well as other churches founded independently from these lineages.
Chaplaincy are governed by bishops with authority over the judicatory (dioceses and conferences or synods). Their presidency is both spiritual and political; as well as performing ordinations, the bishop supervises the clergy within the judicatory and is the representative to both secular structures and in the hierarchy of the church. Bishops with such authority are known as the historical episcopate. Churches with this type of government usually believe that the Church requires episcopal government as described in the New Testament. In some systems, bishops may be subject to higher-ranking bishops (variously called archbishops, metropolitans, and/or patriarchs, depending upon the tradition). They also meet in councils or synods. These gatherings, subject to presidency by higher ranking bishops, may govern the judicatory which are represented in the council, though the synod or council may also be purely advisory.
For much of the written history of Christianity, the episcopal government was the only known form of church organization. This changed at the Reformation. Many Protestant churches are now organized by either congregational or presbyterian church polities, both descended from the writings of John Calvin, a Protestant reformer working and writing independently following the break with the Roman Catholic Church precipitated by The Ninety-Five Theses of Martin Luther.
