My brother in Christ it is extremly good to hear of your church's intrest in our denomination. I am a pastor in the East Mississippi Conferece of the AME Church. Although I am not certain of what an already existing church must do to become affiliated with the AME church I am certain that this action must first be taking up with the Presiding Bishop of that Church's jurisdiction. In our case that would be The Right Reverend Cornal G. Henning Sr. He and his office can be contacted at (504) 948-4251 or fax (504) 947-4018. The Office address is- 2138 St. Bernard Avenue New Orleans LA 70119. I am positive that not only will he lead your church and you in the right direction but he will also welcome you with open arms. Once again on the behalf of all of us in the Exciting and Energetic Eight Episcopal District I would like to say that we are extremly happy of your interest in this Great AME Church.
God Speed Rev. Demetrese D. Phillips Pastor- Ebenezer AME Church-Benton, MS & Mt Nebo AME Church, Shabuta,MS
