"Communication is the MAINSTAY of any civilization!"

We, the members of the Connectional Lay Organization, bring forth and live a ministry of service and witness. Our organization is very similar in make up to the organization of the founding fathers and mothers whose only dream was that of representation and being a part of the governance of the great Zion. We have awakened to a heterogeneous area of service and service related demands.

The Lay Organization of the African Methodist Episcopal Church and our ministry must not just be here for a moment, but we must go beyond the walls of our established circles and comfort zones. This will force us to take a long hard look at our organization and see if we are up to the challenge.

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".
