What We Do

One goal is to teach churches how to gather facts about African American contributions to The United Methodist Church (UMC) they may not have known. Another goal is that such information fosters greater appreciation, insight and encouragement about effective discipleship, evangelism and mission. We provided tools to equip churches in uncovering historical contributions of African American pioneers in their own local churches that are perhaps not widely known.  Numerous ways of preserving and sharing information by experts in the field of research.”

The Heritage Center celebrates telling the stories of the struggles and victories of African Americans called to enhance the mission and ministry of the denomination. AAMHC seeks to creatively develop and disseminate,through print and electronic media, discoveries that have brought us thus far on the way.The collections reveal God at work in the lives of God’s people and offer guidance for the future.
