heart, and bear fruit with patient endurance.” 

Luke 8:15, NRSV

 

 
GREETINGS!

 

 

A new Quadrennium in African Methodism comes with new demands and expectations. We have already begun to consider a future in a culture determined to be smarter than God. Yet, it is our call and duty, as followers of Jesus Christ, to stay the course with an ancient assignment: “Make disciples!” Under the Scripture-based theme, ‘Church Growth: A Long-term Investment Required. 

The Department of Church Growth and Evangelism is making every effort to meet these new demands. I pray that you will make plans to meet Dr. Wade and the full cadre of evangelism-focused clergy and lay in Memphis, Tennessee. The date is set, January 4-6, 2017. We know you will leave inspired! 

A.J. Richardson

Commission Chair 

 

 

As the Executive Director of the Department of Church Growth and Development, it is my immense pleasure to extend the invitation to you to join clergy and laity from around the AME Connectional globe, January 4-6, 2017, in Memphis TN at the first Annual Seminar on Church Growth and Evangelism and Certification Programs for the new Quadrennial! 

It remains clear that if our churches are to experience numeric growth, if our communities are to be rooted by the Good News of True Vine, then our members must be provided with the requisite tools to induce spiritual growth. Healthy, good growth requires time, patience, and the willingness to faithfully and lovingly tend to the small as well as the large crops and the issues that impact each. Hence, this Seminar is dedicated to cultivating the groundwork that has been laid at previous Seminars, while also providing opportunities to plant seeds in seldom considered or randomly explored vineyards.

The preachers, presenters, and facilitators who will be present with us, will give us “good food” to nourish and nurture our minds, spirits, and souls, so that we may return to our respective locations to do the same to and for those in our respective local congregations and other settings where we are located. 

Therefore, I implore you, make your reservations, pack your bags and meet us at the Hilton Hotel on Ridge Lake Blvd, Memphis TN., where together we will open our minds, hearts, and hands for GROWTH THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME!
