Official Website of the AMEC Department of Retirement Services


A Paradigm of Progress

Since being re-created by the 37th General Conference in 1964, the modern-day retirement plan sponsored by the African Methodist Episcopal Church has enjoyed unprecedented growth in both asset value and clergy participation. From its meager beginning, more than 50 Years ago, it has evolved into the largest and most valuable retirement plan of any predominantly black religious denomination in the world today.

In its continuing strategy to avail itself to the rapidly changing world of technology and improve operational efficiency, accuracy and transparency; a management decision was made to completely computerize the protocols and processes of the Plan in the year of 2000.

For the past 16 Years, this change has served to greatly reduce administrative costs, enhance overall productivity and improve access to Plan information for participants. But the advances in technology over the past decade now requires the department database to be made even better. As a result, during the current quadrennial, we will continue to improve our department website to better interact with current internet speeds and programs.

As an important part of this upgrade and as recommended to and approved by the 50th General Conference, the formal name of the department was changed to the AMEC Department of Retirement Services to better identify with its mission and responsibilities. We appreciate your continued support and thank you in advance for your understanding and patience during this period.

As I begin my 5th Quadrennial as Executive Director and Plan Administrator, it has been my honor to serve the dedicated clergy and laity of the AME Church and I am humbled by your continued confidence during my tenure. Last but certainly not least, I am pleased to welcome Bishop Samuel Lawrence Green Sr., the Presiding Prelate of the 7th Episcopal District as the Chairman of our Commission. I look forward to the continued success of our department under his visionary leadership and committed support.
