"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." - Matthew 28:19-20
The Greater Allen Cathedral has a long history of commitment to education. Our thriving educational programs are a testament to our church's determination to minister to the spiritual and scholastic needs of the entire person. The Christian Education Ministry oversees the spiritual education and formation of the church with a specific emphasis on Greater Allen’s adult population.
The Discipleship Ministry serves to receive and integrate new converts and prospective members into The Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York Family. The assimilation processes are designed to encourage Christ-centered living, help new members identify ministries within the church that they can serve and be accountable to, and certainly understand the Biblical mandate of discipleship. Ministry members also assist new converts and those who have made a decision to rededicate their lives to our Lord Jesus by offering prayers and providing pertinent resource information, should the need for additional assistance arise.
The Discipleship and Christian Education Ministries work collaboratively to host Greater Allen’s New Members Classes, New Member Receptions, Designed for Discipleship Class Series, 4.4.4 Short Term Intensive Bible Study Classes and Back to Church Sunday Evangelistic Initiative. The Discipleship and Christian Education Ministries employ a variety of avenues to facilitate the spiritual health of Greater Allen’s congregation.
The Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral's commitment to educating the congregation and the community remains strong and central to the mission of our church.
