Mission Statement

The American Middle East Christians Congress (AMECC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) Michigan-based American community organization.

Michigan is home to the largest concentration of the Middle Eastern communities in the world living outside of the Middle East and is home to well over five hundred thousand Middle Eastern Christians locally.

There are over six million Middle East Christians across the United States including Arabs, Armenians, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Coptic, Maronites, Syriacs and others.

The Middle East Christian communities are spread across the Arabian Peninsula, Asia Minor, Northern Africa and across the Globe.

  • Community Organization:

    AMECC is a congress of unity, between the various Middle Eastern Christian Communities and organizations, that shares the same vision and mission under one umbrella.

  • Nationally:

    Establish a dialogue with other Middle Eastern and NON-Middle Eastern Christian Communities.

  • Internationally:

    Support and strengthen the relationship between the American Middle East Christian communities and the Christian communities in the Middle East and abroad.

AMECC Committees are Government, Civic and Public Affairs, Medical and Humanitarian, Heritage, Education, Cultural, Commerce and Public Relations.

AMECC will coordinate and affiliate with other American-based organizations to achieve its goals.
