At the Church of God in Christ California Northwest 55th Convocation in Oakland last month, Emma Clark was seen wearing many hats.
She served as support staff to the Convention Coordinator, Executive Secretary and the Director of Finance’s offices. She was also a Convocation Institute speaker, whose topic was “Preparing for the Night.”
Mrs. Clark also wears other hats in the Jurisdiction as President of the Business and Professional Women’s Federation, Jurisdiction Union Meeting Secretary, Historian, Evangelist Missionary and Jurisdictional Headquarters support staff person and CNW-Tidbits email ministry writer.
Despite her “busyness” at the northern California level, she finds time to don her national hat to serve as National Business and Professional Women’s Federation Membership Chairperson and chair of Recording Secretaries of Women’s International Convention/Crusade.
She is the Founder/Librarian of the Dr. Mattie McGlothen Library-Museum in Richmond where she is digitizing many issues of the COGIC Whole Truth Magazine and over 100 National Holy Convocation and Women’s International Convention Souvenir Journals for the McGlothen Library-Museum website.
Mrs. Clark loves beautiful hats and she says she does not feel fully dressed on Sunday without a hat. She buys only a few, but many are given to her as gifts.
