On June 30, 2018 the officers and ministry department leaders gathered at John Wesley to organize the ministry of the Boston District of the AME Zion Church for the 2018-2019 annual conference year. The Boston District is spread over the 5 New England states. The meeting was in two parts: first was an executive meeting in which the clergy met for initial planning purposes, followed by a second, larger meeting, which included officers and ministry department leaders, both ordained and non-ordained persons. The Boston District Organizational meeting was lead by Rev. Lloyd McKenzie, Jr., our presiding elder.
