General Conference

The General Conference is the lawmaking body of The A.M.E. Zion Church, which meets every four years. The General Conference is composed of an equal number of ministerial and lay delegates, representing Annual Conferences from around the world! The purpose of the General Conference is to address current church legislation and consider new legislation that could impact the life and organization of the Denomination. One of the most important actions of the General Conference is to elect Bishops, who serve as its General Spiritual Superintendents, General Officers, who provide day to day administrative oversight of its programmatic areas and the Judicial Council that represent the appellate function of the Church.
