The church clerk, like every other church officer, is a ministering servant of God. Every Christian believer is called to ministry, gifted by the Spirit, and in baptism ordained for ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12). At the Potomac Conference Corporation, we want to help local church clerks work as effectively as possible to maintain accurate and up to date records for their churches.
