Our Church Boards & Ministries
Church Organizational Chart
The AME Book of Discipline outlines that each local church shall establish several commissions. Each Commission has an appointed Steward as their chairperson. Commissions are responsible for the ministries under their appointment.
The Board of Stewards are the spiritual lay leaders of the Church. The aspects of their duties are spiritual, financial, advisory and administrative. Stewards are appointed by the Pastor, confirmed by the Quarterly Conference, and serve for a period of 1 year.
The Board of Trustees is made up of at least three members and no more than nineteen. The Pastor shall nominate twice the number of Trustees to be elected. The trustees are elected by the Church membership. Elections are held annually. Trustees manage the temporal concerns of the Church, make improvements upon the property or real estate when authorized to do so by the vote of the simple majority Church members in good standing.
The stewards are the religious leaders in the church appointed by the pastor. They must know and love the Word of God and Doctrine. He or she must also be fruitful and of good natural or acquired ability to transact the spiritual and temporal business of the church.

The purpose of the local lay organization is to get the membership of the local church involved in spiritual and political areas of the AME Church.
The Lay Organization of the AME Church is commissioned to teach, train and empower its members for lay ministry, and global leadership and service following the beliefs of Jesus Christ.
