The Class Leaders are appointed annually by the pastor and they are charged with overseeing their class of atleast 12 members. The class is formed toe discern whether its members are indeed working out their own salvation and teh receive what they contribute to the support of the Gospel. The Class Leaders meet the members in class once a week and, among other things, give instruction in the The Doctrine and Discipline of the AME Church. The Class Leader is to inquire how each member’s soul prospers, to visit their members from time to time, and to receive what they are willing to contribute for the support of the Gospel.
The Class Leaders also visit other classes and remain in close conversation with the pastor about class members. The Class Leaders report to the Official Board members who are sick and recommend those who are eligible at the end of ninety days for full membership.
