The Reverend Terence  R. Gray, I
NRS Ezra 7:10    For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the LORD, and to do it,
and to teach the statutes and ordinances in Israel.

NRS 2 Timothy 2:15     Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved by  Him,
a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly explaining the word of truth.

We are pleased to welcome you to this website.  We hope that it will be a useful tool for you and those matriculating through ministerial academias, practicums, and practices.   The highly-qualified and motivated members are here as ecclesial gatekeepers for ministry to strengthen the kingdom of the God through the arm of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. The Board of Examiners examines qualified candidates and provides instructions for ministry.

Each year, the presiding bishop appoints the Board of Examiners’ chair and members.  They are graduates (Master of Divinity) of seminaries accredited by the Association of Theological Schools or similar accrediting agencies (exception to this requirement is at the discretion of the Annual Conference with the approval of the presiding bishop). The bishop also appoints the Conference Dean of the Ministerial Training Board (Committee on Instruction) who, in turn, nominates the staff committee leaders who are then confirmed by the Annual Conference.

The Ministerial Training Board is organized into the following Committees on Instruction:

 Class on Admissions
Class on First Year Studies
Class on Second Year Studies
Class on Third Year Studies
Class on Fourth Year Studies
