Philadelphia Council of Clergy was founded in 1984 by Archbishop Anthony Floyd, Sr., to gather clergy of all denominations to address challenges that face the Church and community of Philadelphia. PCC is designed to be a facilitator of discussion and collaboration between Philadelphia's Clergy and Christian leaders. We want to be a connector to help the Church stand together as one unified body and share God’s amazing love with our City and region.
Archbishop Floyd also ordained dozens of Pastors who now serve around the world. With the gift of Evangelism, he developed the "Evangelism Master Class" to give people the tools we all need, so that we can be ready to share the good news of our faith when the opportunities present themselves in the workplace, our neighborhoods, and anywhere we find ourselves.
In 2019 the leadership mantle was handed to the Archbishop Mary Floyd Palmer, the first black female Archbishop in the state of Pennsylvania, and the second female in the state's history. She too has the gifts of evangelism and leadership. Her heart is to see Christ's people serve Him together, united in His love, regardless of denominational differences. Her vision is quickly bringing the organization's structure and goals forward, with a tremendous focus on leadership collaboration across Philadelphia.
She brought on Rev Michel Faulkner, an NYC transplant whose heart has been pierced for Philadelphia. Michel served as a pastor for over 30 years. He knows what it is to build a church from the ground up in Harlem and to take over a renowned pulpit in Manhattan. He has run businesses and even run for Mayor. But now - his passion is for those who walk in the shoes he has already worn, and to be a shepherd and friend to shepherds.
As a collective, the Council maintains good standing with our local government officials, and acts as a voice representing Christ "at City Hall" and with all civic organizations as needed. After decades of hosting inter-denominational and diverse-racial discussions for Philadelphia's Christian leadership, PCC now believes that God is releasing a spirit of Collaboration in Philadelphia, that will take us from conversations to action. PCC is establishing new infrastructure by which Clergy and Christian Non Profit leaders can work together to share the love of Jesus in Philadelphia through Evangelism, Pastoral Care for Shepherds, Coordinated Prayer and Ministry Collaboration.

Is our church using Facebook or another social media platform instead of launching its own website? Maybe you think a website is too expensive. It doesn't have to be. The expense of owning a basic website is about $200 per year or less. And, our charge for creating a website, and teaching you how to maintain can be as little as $800.
Does your church have a domain, but your website's style is outdated? Let's bring you into modernity. I with a new website that can be attached to your current domain.
Website Updating and Maintenance
Does your church already have a pretty good website, but you lack the staff to stay on top of updating it? Consider things like:
Updated Calendars and Announcements
New Pictures of Recent Events
A Pastor's Blog (weekly or daily devotional for example)
Social Media Connections
New Features You want to launch
These all take time and know-how. Depending on the complexity of your needs, weekly maintenance of your site does NOT have to be that expensive.
Branding is not just for corporations. Even your denomination has a 'brand' in a sense. Is your worship a full band, multi-media experience? Is it an organ in a stain glassed cathedral? Is it a 'full gospel southern baptist' throw down, or a brethren 'somber and reverent' approach? With each description, you had a picture come to mind. Your website, print materials, newsletter ... all that you use for communicating - should reflect YOUR 'style' or brand.
Believe it or not, corporations pay tens of thousands of dollars to have a team evaluate the company goals, target audience and 'vibe' in order to come up with not only a logo, but which fonts to use, which colors to use to make people 'feel' a certain way ... Let me get to know you and your church and help you discover your branding. Once you have branding, everything else follows - from business cards to newsletters to websites - we create based on your church personality or 'brand'
Fliers, Bulletins, Newsletters
Special Events Print
Ghost writing or Editing for Pastoral Projects (whether your writing a book or a monthly daily devotional or a blog...)
End of the Year Reports or Fundraising Presentations
Whatever you need.
Is your women's ministry planning a retreat? Your choir giving a concert? Your youth group doing a missions trip? Special Events may need special materials
Eventbrite Event Page set up, reporting & ticketing
Event "Landing Page" which is like a mini website just for that event that is hosted on your website and attached to a ticketing platform if needed
Print materials, Social media announcements, website updates
What would it be like to have congregants share their stories of God's goodness in their lives? Whether a testimony is one of salvation or provision, overcoming something in God's power, or resting in His peace.
Whether they tell their story on video, or through an interview, or they write the story themselves, this is something I especially love to do. After writing a series of magazine articles on Veterans and Cancer patients, I realized that I have a knack for
Ala Carte Services are "ala carte" because each church's needs can be vastly different. For example, in some churches an executive pastor may have the ability to approve anything I do. While another church may need each item approved by a board, which makes the process much lengthier. But as previous clients can testify, I work "at NYC speed" (much faster than average). And, I am able to tune into each client and produce things that need very little modification.
When You contact me about services, we'll discuss the project and I'll estimate the time needed to complete it, to give you an estimated cost.
Standard Hourly Rate: $25
Client Rate: $20/hr
(for clients subscribed to monthly Digital Communications Packages)
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.
