In 2016 she was one of five new bishops elected at the quadrennial gathering of the Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference, held at Lake Junaluska, North Carolina. The Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference is the regional authority overseeing twelve UMC conferences in the states of Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida. Lewis was elected on the first ballot, and according to news reports, there was cheering and applause when her election was announced. It was a historic moment, as she was the first African American woman ever to be elected to the position of bishop in the Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference. She was also the first African American woman bishop to be elected within the UMC since 2000.

In the United Methodist Church, bishops are elected for life. They serve an episcopal district for a four-year term, and generally stay for two terms in a region. Lewis was assigned as the bishop for the Virginia Conference in 2016. Her predecessor was Bishop Young Jin Cho. She is the resident bishop of the Richmond, Virginia, area.


Lewis became the district superintendent for the Atlanta-Decatur-Oxford District in the UMC's North Georgia Conference in 2010.


After earning her degree in 1999, Lewis was ordained. She was appointed by her bishop to serve as the associate pastor at Ben Hill UMC, in Atlanta. She was later promoted to senior associate pastor at Ben Hill.


As a young woman, Lewis was passionate about science, and her first career was as a biologist and chemist. She graduated from Mercer University with a Bachelor of Science in biology in 1985. She then went on to graduate school, completing a Master of Science degree in biology at the University of West Georgia in 1988. After graduation, she began working as a scientist in corporate settings and academia for a few years. She had applied to medical school twice and been denied. She applied a third time, but while she was waiting to hear if she had been accepted, her Aunt Essie, a Methodist minister, encouraged her to pursue ministry instead.


Lewis' election occurred sixty years after women were granted "full clergy rights" in the United Methodist Church, allowing them to serve as fully-ordained ministers. The UMC elected its first woman bishop, Marjorie Matthews, in 1980. The first African American woman bishop, Leontine T.C. Kelly, was elected in the UMC in 1984. Between 2012 and 2016, the UMC had no active African American women bishops. In 2016, seven women were elected as bishops across the UMC denomination, of which four were African American. In addition to Lewis, the active African American women bishops in the UMC are: Tracy Smith Malone, Cynthia Moore-Koikoi, and LaTrelle Miller Easterling.
