In A Bicentennial Commemorative History, The African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, 1972-1996 by Bishop J. Clinton Hoggard, former Secretary of Christian Education, George L. Blackwell emphasized the significance of A.M.E. Zion’s schools and colleges when he addressed the 41st General Conference:

The church has no treasure more valuable than the institutions of higher learning founded and nurtured by it . . . The A.M.E. Zion Church has always counted on the marriage of liberal learning and vital piety as being the most profound form of faithfulness in the gospel.
