THE PHILADELPHIA COUNCIL OF CLERGY
We are a Non Denominational Organization
Serving Greater Philadelphia's Clergy
and Christian Non Profit Leaders
The Leadership of PCC is here to serve YOU, as you serve your flock.
If you are a pastor, priest, or the Director of a Christian non profit, you may feel alone - alone in your work, perhaps a solo voice in social justice fight, or alone without peer relationships with people who understand the struggles and joys specific to leading a ministry and the lonely proverbial pedestal that often comes with it. The question often arises, 'Who will care for YOU as you are caring for your flock?
The Philadelphia Council of Clergy was established as a non-denominal organization to provide a forum for pastors to pray together, to build peer relationships that support and empower one another, and even to collaborate in serving neighborhoods or a target groups, No matter what denomination covers you, you are invited to join us.
Our Gatherings will be on Zoom until further notice.

PROVIDING & PARTNERING
AGENCY OF ORDINATION
Your denomination provides certain things you need, but may not provide others. And, if you are non-denominational you may be in need of even more. As a licensed, accredited agency of ordination, we're here to fill the gap, or provide you with the covering you need. We can even walk with you in the development of new leaders within your church, and their ordination if they seek it.
EVANGELISM MASTER CLASS
The late Rev. Melvin Floyd founded the school of evangelism in 1993. His daughter, Archbishop Mary Floyd Palmer created a master evangelism class that has been taught to congregations across Philadelphia for over 40 years. This class has been carried forward by Archbishop Mary Floyd Palmer, and helps your congregants understand lifestyle evangelism, and how to share thier faith in truth, but non threatening ways with people they interact with every day.
We are now partnering with The Antioch School of Church Planting and Leadership Development to provide low cost, Certificate of Ministry programs, and Batchelor's, Master's, and Doctoral degrees in the area of Theology and Ministry.
In many ways, pastors and ministry leaders are like small business owners. You may be on your own to get services you need, such as health insurance, accounting services, or media services. PCC is growing our resources to provide you with things like these, if you need them.
We believe there are enough people who need saving to fill every church in this city. YOUR church will be perfect for some, but your neighbor's church will be perfect for others. So we want to assist you in executing and promoting collaborative ministries and events. For, we are better together than alone!
THE PHILADELPHIA CHURCH SURVEY
It is estimated that Philadelphia has between 2,500-3,000 churches. Whether a church has 40 members or 2,000 regular attenders, every church body has purpose. Often times, a small church faithfully serving a neighborhood can have a big impact as a staple of the community. We have designed a survey of Churches and Christian Non Profits to find out where they are, and what they are doing. What churches have a youth group ... a clothing distribution ... a homeless ministry... a ministry to seniors ... provide a location for an AA or NA meeting? These are things that even a google search won't reveal. Our goal for the survey is to both collect this kind of information to be published on a site that can be used by anyone to find ministries they need, or would like to volunteer with. We also want to connect leaders of likeminded ministries to support one another and even "do things together that they cannot do alone"
HONOR ONE ANOTHER ABOVE YOURSELVES ~Rom 12:10
The leadership of PCC count it an joy to give honor to those who have worked faithfully in the Kingdom, in ways from which we can all learn. In 2020 we inaugurated our "Honor the Dreamers" Award in the memory of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We look forward to making this an annual event.
For, Philadelphia is rich with people worthy of honor.
