WMEC Simplified2

WMEC - Simplified
 
At the onset, The WMEC:  was s all about leadership development, for- poor and disadvantaged, African- American Women in Nashville, TN. (Hopefully, soon to become, leadership development for poor Women of the World), who are internationally conceived of as the “least of the Sisteren”; that is, those most in need of evangelization, salvation/redemption and assistance so they can spread this life liberating experience with their children and extended families.
   “When you did it for the least of the Sisteren”, “You did it unto me”.  This is a paraphrase of the biblical scripture found in (Matthew 25-31-46).
In other words, this is our uniquely local WMEC ministerial expression, of serving Jesus Christ in the world.
Nevertheless, Because Euro-American  women, Asian women, Persian women, Oriental women, African-Disporan, and Continental African women, as well as European women;   and all other women of color, from  both the middle and bourgeois classes, (along with  the, affluent women of the world); have the capacity to be so very highly  beneficial to this ministerial movement; they are greatly sought out,  and recruited for their technical and professional expertise, in training, business administration, and  of course hands on ministry; and financing.
This is particularly encouraged to be done sensitively, with the clear understanding that black men and all other men, traditionally learned leadership development in the religious institutions of their local communities, while limiting (often severely so), the leadership development opportunities of women in these arenas.
Questions and Answers.
Q.  Why is it a church as opposed to just a non-profit?
A.  Because I, Abp. Angela Driver, Founder, and 1 Archbishop of the WMEC,; am first and foremost a Christain; and the WMEC is an extension of my Christain calling and ministry and  also fundamentally who I am in Christ Jesus; in whom, I live and move, and have my being.  Consequently, it is what it is.
 Furthermore, I am also convinced that many of the obstacles we face as African-American women stem from a lack of Christain salvation/evangelization, Christain Education/nurture, and Spiritual development which once resulted in discipline and discipleship, in the traditional home via (home training,) which has either lagged, or not transpired at all in recent generations.  It’s time to get a grip.
Essentially, we are the women and therefore bearers of culture and our traditional cultural values are not getting passed down sufficiently.  This is either by design, by the dominate culture, or simply by way of the overwhelmingly oppressive conditions, under which we operate when un-organized and unchurched.
In any case, only we can adequately address this crisis which is eating away like a cancer; many of the traditions which became the, pillars of strength and bridges over which our ancestors crossed out of slavery and beyond.  We must get back to; at least some, of the old landmarks.
This deterioration has been due to many factors including but not limited to, our continued economic and political oppression.  Which has of course, been tremendously exacerbated through, the flooding of our communities with drugs, a welfare system that largely separates and destroys black men by way of removing them away from their ( women and children ,both  of which are highly civilizing factors in a man’s life and psyche.  Thereby resulting, in a consequent community loss of human and family values, Christain values, Afro- centric values, and the consequent mass incarceration, murder and destruction, exerted upon black males by the dominant society, largely, out of a fear of their genetic and therefore biological dominance and consequent, perceived sexual, and/or genetic superiority.
Although it’s just a start, the WMEC hopes to evangelize, discipleship, love, train ordain and send out  cadres of African-American Christain women  into the community to begin and continue this holy,   positive, religious and socializing cycle,  in a meaningful manner, while pursuing social justice, in many forms   including but not limited to,  voter registration, which we know works for us as a people, on so many levels.;  spiritually, politically and economically, - building as we go; just as the Black Muslims,  the AME’s ,AMEZ’s, Black United Methodists, COGIC’s,  Black Baptists of all Conferences, Black Apostolic’ s and Pentecostals.
Black Episcopalians, Black Catholics, Black Lutherans, Black Presbyterians, Black Quakers, and all other Black church denominations and Black church factions of Adventists, Disciples of Christ, and all other predominantly Euro-American denominations,  which have historically, and so successfully done before us. 
 Withjust one, basic difference;we   the WMEC, shall deliberately although not quite exclusively, aspire to unleash and loose, the power of womanhood and Black Christain, sisterhood, at the highest spiritual levels, onto the World Scene providing all Christain women of   good will, with yet another powerful voice; with which, our spiritually and consciously raised gender, can utilize forever; to speak eternal truths to power,   Gloria Excelsior! (i. e., To the Glory of God, - In the Highest!)
Why Just Women?
Actually that is a misconception.  The WMEC is designed for women and their families.
These days, 60 %, of all American households, both black and white are headed by single parents; the overwhelming majority of whom are women.

 So, it’s really an appeal to the majority of families if you think about. Men wishing to join our fellowship are numerous; and automatically become considered as part of my own family; if they have no female relatives or children already among the membership.  We only ask that they be cognizant that we are trying to develop leadership opportunities primarily, if not exclusively, for poor disadvantaged minority women, who certainly can and do respond to, and learn from coaches and mentors of all genders, orientations, nationalities, and ethnicities.WMEC - Simplified
