Abstract
Mount Zion African Methodist Episcopal Church is located in Harlem, in New York City. It is an aging and declining congregation with few children and young adults. The Demonstration Project developed a year-round after school Children’s Program in an attempt to both fill an urgent community need and to help revitalize a declining congregation. A congregational study revealed a need for a visionary with insight into what would bring renewed energy to the insiders in the church and would allow insiders to observe the needs of outsiders in their neighboring community.
Following the teachings of our church, demonstration project created a model for children’s Outreach Ministry of Educational and Spiritual support bridging the gap between Mount Zion A. M. E. Church and its neighboring community. The primary focus of the church seems to be specifically on the members within the church and raising money to keep the church afloat. By instituting the Children’s Program, a church will provide an alternative to the insular and unwelcoming present of the congregation and promote an ambitious program to attract new members and increase the vitality of both the congregation and the community.
