Class Leaders

Jacqueline Reese, Leader & New Members

The Class Leaders’ Council is a organizational unit of the AME Church. It connects each member to the local church. The Class Leaders’ Council organizes all class leaders for the purpose of keeping them abreast of the Church’s membership. The class leaders’ responsibility is to provide support to their assigned members by visiting and communicating with them,listening to and praying with and for them. They also act as liaisons to the Pastor and the Official Board on the well-being of their assigned members. Class leaders must also motivate the members to attend and participate in the Church and its related activities and events.

The St. Paul A.M.E. Church Class Leaders are dedicated members who are focused on the tasks of providing spiritual support and guidance to the members of the church. Class Leaders are chosen by the pastor to serve needs of the congregation, which extends to fulfilling the mission of Jesus Christ in preparing for God’s Kingdom.

St. Paul has a designated class for our new members who are so very precious to us.  This class goes beyond and above to make sure new members feel connected to St. Paul AME and are free to question and learn in an environment with other new members.  Please contact us for your New Members Class leader.
