The Supervisors Council of the African Methodist Episcopal Church is pleased to welcome you to share in an at-a-glance view of our mission, vision, leadership and work, at home and abroad. Collectively, we are dedicated to God, family, church and community.

As Supervisors, it is our on-going effort to pro-actively engage our time, talent and resources in creatively planning and implementing program initiatives that will embrace the needs of those whom we seek to serve. Specifically, our work is directed toward women and children, in particular. Our programs are quite diverse, including, but not limited to, caring for orphans, educating children, facilitating summer youth camps, promoting leadership training, providing information and ensuring counseling and testing facilities for holistic health and wellness.

Whether our mission work has been fulfilled in the United States or in a global location, our goals and objectives have been to remain pertinent to the salient needs of our time. Together, it is our hope that our example raises the standard bar and exemplifies attitudes and behaviors that are worthy of emulation as we champion being servant leaders. We understand that as we help others, we help ourselves.

Collectively, through volunteerism, we strive to demonstrate worthy qualities of leadership, honesty, forward-thinking and competencies that empowers others; to be passionate and inspiring as we see the big picture to achieve, the possible; to be competent in life-long learning, for example to listen and hear as well as to understand others, as we seek to take people from where they are as individuals or circumstances to where they can be, as our work for human betterment continues. Our approach is intuitive. As we address the plethora of challenges assigned to our hands.

Our role as a helpmate to our spouse, encourages our fresh dedication to family. The more you invest in a marriage, the more valuable it becomes. In marriage, each partner is to be an encourager rather than a critic, a forgiver rather than a collector of hurts, an enabler rather than a reformer. A great marriage is not when the 'perfect couple' comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.
