President’s Message

Welcome to the Association of Ministry Guidance Professionals website. Our purpose is to provide professional development for those who have responsibility for ministry guidance, a forum for sharing information and establishing professional standards for ministry guidance. In addition, we seek to create opportunities for members to experience fellowship and inspiration. A key value for us is that the actual practice of ministry is an indispensable part of ministerial education. We believe certain vital lessons in ministry are gained only in the crucible of ministerial experience.

We invite you to join us by becoming a member. Under the Joining tab on the homepage you will find more information about membership. We also would like to invite you to our annual meeting for professional development, fellowship, and inspiration.  The 2022 annual meeting will be May 16-18, 2022 at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. You can find all the meeting details under the Annual Meeting tab on our website.

If you would like to know more about our organization or how to join, please feel free to contact me through the Contact tab. Again, I hope that you would consider joining with us as we seek to sharpen and support one another in the task of preparing students for healthy, lifelong Christian ministry.
