"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".
