"Clergy are so focused on the hereafter, but we should know more about planning for life after work."
-Rev. Dr. Bert White, a retired Methodist clergyman and lecturer at Boston University
The Association of Clergy & Ministry Leaders, Inc. is an interfaith non profit organization specifically designed to support the well-being, livelihood, and community efforts of clergy, their key supporting staff, and their families by providing essential benefits and resources to ensure that they, their families, and their hard work are safeguarded for the future. Driven by a passion for ministry and a heart for those who sacrifice their lives in the service of others, the need for such a place of advocacy and support became very evident to us. Our beliefs, our convictions, our faith all play key roles in the foundation of our society, and is evidenced especially in times of crisis and uncertainty both personal and global. Our resiliance in these circumstances is often a testament to the work of these facilitators of social justice and community empowerment who point us upward and onward, inspiring us, reminding us that life is more than it seems. Who do they turn to in times of need? Who will advocate for them, support them, their ministry efforts, their families? This is the mission of The Association of Clergy & Ministry Leaders, Inc. and we are dedicated to this cause.
