AAMA has organized cluster meetings according to geographic locations. Cluster Meetings are held to have a time of worship, fellowship, ministerial sharing, and other networking purposes. Although it is divided regionally, everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend other cluster meetings. As we grow, we see a great need for this community to continue to create a place where our members can build deeper meaningful relationships; reminding each other we are walking this journey called life together for the glory of God.

Family Winter Retreat
AAMA hosts a space for our families to get together for deeper fellowship and connection around the time between Christmas and New Years. It is a combination of worship, fellowship, continuing education, and council meeting. There were such times, when the Bishop or our District Superintendents graciously led seminars and small groups which greatly supported our members in deepening our pastoral and administrative leadership skills. Everyone is invited to register and participate, including our families. Please join us in this time of Family Retreat! For more information, please contact Rev. Won Gyu Lee, AAMA Vice President ([email protected]).
