General Conference Guide
2020 AMEC General Conference
We, the Second Episcopal District have undertaken an incredible journey. Following the Biblical mandate Jesus gave the apostles, we are planting a brand new church. We do not intend to replant churches that did not previously achieve sustainability. Instead, we are pursuing a new opportunity. While the location has not yet been determined, church planter applications and assessments have been received, and the process is now closed.
If you heard God call you to church planting and applied – you were willing to undertake the grueling work involved – your family wanted to take this leap of faith with you – and, you desired to be a productive member of a ministry team. We thank you for applying to become a co-pastor to our church plant. More information will be forthcoming on this incredible church planting journey. Stay tuned!
A CALL TO ACTION - WMS DORCAS INITIATIVE!
Dear Pastor and Congregation - Second Episcopal District Family:
We are writing this letter to ask your generous support for the Dorcas Initiative sponsored annually by the Women’s Missionary Society (WMS) in the Second Episcopal District. We applaud the WMS for its outstanding work, not only in the Second Episcopal District; but Connectionally and globally to advance God’s Kingdom now and to leave a Kingdom legacy for generations yet unborn.
Many of you have been most generous in supporting the DORCAS work and we are grateful for your benevolent spirit. We are urging all of our congregations to support the WMS’ Dorcas Initiative that benefit so many individuals and causes.
The Dorcas Initiative is an essential tool the WMS uses to raise funds to implement its work throughout the Second district and connection, including, supporting overseas missions, (b) supporting the AME Shelter in Raleigh, NC, and (c) assisting pastors and congregations in smaller churches. Additionally, the Missionaries are able to meet their district and connectional obligations, not only for the WMS but the YPD; from Funds raised at the Dorcas Extravaganza which is held annually during the Midwinter Meeting. This Conference Year the Dorcas Extravaganza will take place in Greensboro, NC, February 13-15, 2020. Also, The funds raised empowers the WMS to award educational scholarships to youth, inclusive of those who need assistance; but might be overlooked in normal scholarship searches. We need your participation and support to ensure that the WMS’ expansive outreach occurs in a manner that’s beneficial to all recipients.
Your local WMS president and members of the local Society are available to fill you in on numerous exciting details regarding Dorcas’ Biblical history, The Extravaganza and its significance in fulfilling what God has called us to be and do for others.
Thanks in advance for your support of the Dorcas Initiative as we continue to encourage our WMS and share our resources to help those in need. In the Spirit of Leaving a Kingdom Legacy, we remain,
