The members of the Church of Clarendon invite you to share with us in the joy of welcoming Reverend Danielle Bridgeforth as the senior pastor of our church. This celebration will be held on (Sunday, November 12, at 4:30 PM) in our Sanctuary.
Pastor Bridgeforth is a confident yet humble pastor, entrepreneur, and former attorney who will provide strong leadership and an inspiring example to our community in the heart of the D.C. metro area. She graduated with honors from Howard University School of Law, and spent several years as an attorney in health care litigation, before answering the call to serve in ministry. She made the career change to become an associate pastor at Shiloh Baptist Church in Alexandria, attended seminary, and obtained a Masters of Divinity degree with high honors. In 2015, Pastor Danielle joined the John Leland Center for Theological Studies as the Director of Enrollment and Development.
Pastor Bridgeforth founded Joy4Life Ministries in 2013 and is certified in marital and pre-marital counseling through the Prepare-Enrich Marital/Pre-Marital Counseling Program. Pastor Bridgeforth is also in the process of publishing her first book, a devotional entitled Vantage Point. This is a topical devotional that will help readers expand their perspective, enlarge their faith, and experience God anew. She recently completed training and was certified as a member of the Fairfax County Community Chaplain Corps, an interfaith group which provides chaplain care and support to community members during and after an emergency or disaster.
We are excited about the future ministry of our church under the leadership of our new pastor. We greatly hope that you will join with us as we welcome her to our church and to the community.
