The General Officers of the A.M.E. Zion Church are elected administrative department heads that are created by and responsible to the General Conference and a supervising bishop. The purpose of these departments is to provide resources and services that will enable individual congregations to serve God effectively in the world. Through the work of these departments, The A.M.E. Zion Church is able to maintain a common vision, mission, and ministry throughout its worldwide connectional system.
Most all of the administrative departments have their own governing board of lay and clergy members. Others may just have a supervising bishop. Members of these boards are selected from individuals nominated by annual conferences and other groups. In addition to board members, there are staff members who coordinate and carry out the day-to-day ministry work of each department.
These administrative departments are organized by function. If you or your church organization needs assistance in any part of your ministry, the general officer or a staff person stands ready to assist you.
