The Connectional Christian Education and Youth Congress is a gathering in the AME Church held typically every four years (quadrennially) by the church’s Department of Christian Education as an intensive learning time designed for all ages, lay and ordained. AMEs of all ages from around the world come together for this gathering. When many AMEs are asked about the Christian Education event that had the most positive influence in their development as a Christian, many cite attending Christian Education Congress! These gatherings continue to be a wonderful time of worship, fellowship, learning, organizing, planning, and FUN for all ages.

This time, we will have plenaries that help us go deeper into God’s word, leading us to a stronger witness for liberation, justice, and peace. There will be learning labs for youth and adults regarding gift discernment and the diversity of ministries, helping them to answer such questions as: What are my God-given gifts? What is God calling me to be and do? How can I make a difference in the world? There will be Christian Education Certification as well as learning labs sponsored by the AMEC Health Commission. The Office of the General Secretary/Chief Information Officer will also offer an introduction and training for AME Connect, the church’s new data management system. There will be so much MORE! We are planning so that there is something for everyone!


 The Ministries of Christian Education will hold their elections of connectional officers at the Congress as well.  Information about the elections can also be found at https://ameced.com/cecongress.  The department has asked that all persons interested in seeking a connectional office for any of the ministries of Christian Education to submit their intent to run to the department by Friday, April 27, 2018.

Questions or concerns can be directed to the Department of Christian Education at cedoffice@ameced.com or 615.242.1420.
