The Connectional Lay Organization welcomes you to our newly redesigned website!  We are excited about this wonderful opportunity to expand lay ministry throughout the A.M.E. Church Connection.  Please spend time reviewing our rich history, downloading educational materials and connecting with our districts, conferences and local churches through the many references available on our website.  Once again, welcome!

"Communication is a Vital Element"

The Connectional Lay Organization's Website is the digital "front door" to communicate information and our vision. It is designed to share and connect with each Connectional Officer, Episcopal District, Conference and Local Levels of our Zion globally. While sharing our experiences, photos, and interests, our goal is to turn visitors into prospects of becoming active members of the Lay Organization.
