"For we are co-workers in God's service; you are God’s field. You are God's building." 1Corinthians 3:9
The purpose of the Lay Organization is to organize and train the laity of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. It is dedicated to create a love and appreciation of the history, traditions, principals, discipline, evangelistic and financial and general well-being of African Methodism; to stimulate and educate laity in the total program of the church; teach and practice stewardship and work with the youth to teach them Methodism. The Lay is also charged with keeping the memory of our founder, Bishop Richard Allen. We, the members of the Connectional Lay Organization, bring forth and live a ministry of service and witness. The Lay Organization of the African Methodist Episcopal Church and our Local Lay Ministry must not just be here for a moment, but we must go beyond the walls of our established circles and comfort zones. Moving Beyond the Walls forces us to become global in our thinking, in our mission, in our ministry, and in our witness. We are a church of many believers with diverse needs; we are…. "Laity Fulfilling the Great Commission.” If you are interested in joining the organized Lay Organization of our church,
