Religious leaders, pastors, clergy, lay leaders, elected and appointed officials and the community at large will be on hand for the second installation of
Reverend Terrence Griffith as president of the Black Clergy of Philadelphia and Vicinity Sunday, February 10, 2013. All officers of the Black Clergy
organization will be installed on Sunday as well.

The installation service will take place at First African Baptist Church, where the new President of the organization, Reverend Terrence Griffith, is the
senior pastor. The installment service will start promptly at 5PM. The First African Baptist Church is located at 16th and Christian Streets in South

At a time when the Philadelphia Police Department continues to search for three people who kidnapped and harmed a five year old little girl, to the concern
for the Philadelphia public school system in particular and the slow progress of our children getting the best grades they can get on standardized test, to
the continuing violence on our streets and more, the Black Clergy of Philadelphia and Vicinity is needed more today than ever.

Reverend Terrence Griffith as leader of the Black Clergy group, over the past 12 months, has accomplished, with strong executive officers and dedicated
members, many of the things he said he would do when he was installed last February. He said the Black Clergy of Philadelphia and Vicinity would stay ever
vigilant over what happens with the Philadelphia Public School System.

They’ve done that. He said they would be vocal about concerns related to political elections when need be, so when the photo voter ID Law went wrong last
year, the Black Clergy helped to lead the charge to postpone the law going into affect before last years’ presidential election.


For the first time in the history of the Black Clergy of Philadelphia and Vicinity, under Terrence Griffith’s leadership, they have established a
professional office in center city Philadelphia for the Clergy organization to operate from. In past years, the Clergy headquarters historically has always
been the church of whomever is president at the time. Rev. Terrence Griffith and his leadership team of the Black Clergy are making things happen.
