President’s Message

I am grateful and honored to serve as President of the Association of Ministry Guidance Professionals. I look forward to working with the board and our membership in the coming year.

I congratulate all you who continue to serve Christ in Ministry Guidance. Today’s students represent the future of ministry of the church in its many facets. Your hard work and dedication to our organization with the colleges, universities, State conventions and seminaries you represent, is of paramount importance.

All members of AMGP need to engage (or re-engage) in our professional organization. During tough times, joining AMGP remains a tremendous option. I will be working to keep us intentional in broadening our outreach to include those doing ministry guidance who are not yet AMGP members. We should be deliberate about working with other evangelicals and those doing campus ministry.

As always, AMGP will offer the best quality conference we can while minimizing the cost of attendance. I’m looking forward to our 2024 annual meeting in Raleigh, NC., at First Baptist Church. We’ll be meeting in conjunction with two other professional organizations. We will offer a variety of meaningful presentations and workshops designed just for us. You will be able to see the preliminary 2024 schedule and content soon, on this site.

If I can help in any way, please feel please contact me.

Even though retired, I am grateful to serve with you. Join AMGP here.

Randy Deering, D.Min.

AMGP President
