Welcome to The People’s A.M.E. Church

A Church with a Heart for Ministry!

The acts of Christian service which lead men, women and children into the fellowship with Jesus Christ is considered ministry. To ensure the spiritual life of the church is maintained and the power of godliness is preserved, a divine call to the work of ministry shall be exhibited by the church. For this cause the various groups shall be called ministries.

At The People’s Church we have over 31 ministries to assist in serving God, HIS people and HIS Church. It is our prayer that each member will find a ministry that is the perfect fit for both their spiritual and mental growth.
