Michael O. Minor

47, Hernando, Mississippi

POSITION: Baptist pastor

NOTABLE FOR: His faith-based war on obesity. The Delta preacher banned fried chicken from his congregation’s gatherings more than 10 years ago. He’s since taken his crusade national, aiming to install a trained “health ambassador” to oversee antiobesity education programs at each of the National Baptist Convention’s roughly 10,000 churches this year.
