Welcome to Wayman AME’s virtual community of diverse believers.  Our theme "Operating in Excellence while Maximizing Every Opportunity" describes what we, as a body ofChrist, strive to achieve.  Our desire for you is to experience God’s goodness and His grace.


Please engage with us where you are and be prepared to soar to new levels of spiritual growth.  With all that happens in our daily lives, we need to connect through fellowship and prayer with those who are spiritually strong in the Lord.  We are a generational church that addresses the needs of children, youth, couples, men, women and our seniors.  Connect where and how you believe best and God will use you. 


According to Acts 2:42-47, Wayman as a body and each one of our members, generously gives of our spiritual gifts and financial resources to experience miracles, unity and growth.  Join us to uncover and live your true purpose in life and soar!
