The Clergy Family Information Center is a global online email notification ministry, its MISSION, an online conduit of Compassion and Caring. The ministry is a component of the Commission On Social Action of the African Methodist Episcopal Church; Bishop Reginald T. Jackson, Commission Chair, Mrs. Jackie DuPont Walker, Director, Consultant and Mrs. Ora L. Easley is the Administrator of The Clergy Family Information Center. The ministry sends email notifications globally to thousands of members of the African Methodist Episcopal Church from Episcopal Districts 1-20. The ministry is a seven-day a week and holidays endeavor reaching across continents and oceans.
The primary function of the ministry is to inform e-mail recipients of deaths occurring within the families of God’s called servants, from our church leadership, of bishops, general officers, judicial council, connectional officers, presiding elders, pastors, ministerial staff and their families, to the families of the AME Church endorsed chaplaincy, presidents and deans of the AME Seminaries, Universities and Colleges.
The verification process precedes the posting of email notifications. Deliberate care and sensitively is exercised with each notification to avoid the posting of erroneous bereavement notifications and or service information. Many follow-up letters of sympathy are emailed to bereaved families with email addresses or e-cards are sent.
***An attempt is made by The Clergy Family Information Center to verify every bereavement notices posted via family or the funeral home establishment; therefore, follow-up information, updates and addendums are only posted at the request of Presiding Bishops, unless the deceased is denominational church leadership or from Districts 14-20.
