First District Resources
An Opportunity to Share and Learn
Welcome to the Clergy Corner. This section of our website is designed to provide a variety of valuable resources and information to clergy of the First Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. This is a work in progress and we invite colleagues to share resource information and or ideas for information that should be published on this webpage.
Working in ministry as a clergy professional is demanding and oftentimes challenging particularly for a Pastor of a local church, a Presiding Elder responsible for the administration of a District and even for our Episcopal leaders. But, where do we go for information and resources to help make our jobs and lives a little less stressful; the answer we hope will be found in this section of the District Website titled the Clergy Corner and its subsequent pages.
The image above outlines many of the areas of our focus as clergy and requires that we continue to study and continually be willing to learn more about our craft regardless of the stage of our career in ministry. We would like to take a moment to thank our Episcopal Father in Christ, Bishop Gregory G.M. Ingram for his visionary leadership and willingness to share a wealth of information and valuable resources at our various District Meetings as well as through many of his own personal works and writings on these subjects. This website and particularly this section will serve as a Portal and Repository for all clergy persons in the First Episcopal District to have access to the many handouts, documents and other resources distributed at our District Meetings and other gatherings that are either presented by our Episcopal leadership, guest lecturers as well as our colleagues. We pray you will enjoy visiting the Clergy Corner often!
