This is ACLC in action around America and the world.
Atlanta ACLC is focused on hosting a September True Family Values Award Banquet as part of a Marriage Blessing initiative in Georgia. When ACLC National Co-Chairman Dr. Ki Hoon Kim visited Atlanta in March, a core team of clergy met with him, eager to revive the Atlanta Chapter of the ACLC and committed to holding monthly meetings in Atlanta to build momentum and expand the network.
The goal is to have 300 participants at the banquet, with the Governor presenting the awards to the awardees. To prepare for the awards banquet, ACLC will hold a monthly ACLC breakfast. Upcoming events will focus on issues of marriage and parenting, with themes including “Why we marry,” “Enriching your marriage,” “Protecting your marriage,” “A marriage ministry for your congregation,” etc.
The core team established a new umbrella organization to “make marriage great again” in Georgia. The name will be something like, Georgians for Healthy Marriages and Families. One of the goals of the GHMF is to share the Marriage Blessing with 100 couples in each of the fourteen U.S. Congressional Districts in Georgia.
The next ACLC breakfast will be on Thursday, May 18, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.

On St. Patrick’s Day, 2017, we gathered for a Pastors’ Forum at the United Missionary Baptist Church. Rev. Bruce Grodner (ACLC National Executive Director) facilitated discussion about why Jesus’ disciples could believe in Jesus but John the Baptist and the Pharisees could not.
At the ACLC Prayer Breakfast on Saturday, April 1, 2017, Evangelist Blinky Williams from True Vine Baptist Church warmly welcomed everyone in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on behalf of True Parents and the American Clergy Leadership Conference. Immediately following this, musicians from Sadoc Christian Peace Family Church unleashed the power of the Holy Spirit with praise and worship.
Twelve clergy convened March 13-14, 2017, for an ACLC Biblical Principles seminar entitled “Jumping with Both Feet into the Will of God.” The ministers truly experienced two days of deep Biblical insight revealing God’s formula to redeem mankind. They were deeply moved and asked for more.
Over 50 guests and women leaders from various churches and organizations gathered together at St. Mark AME Church, for the New Jersey ACLC Women In Ministry Prayer Breakfast. Some were new guests from a neighboring Episcopal church, as well as old acquaintances from over the years. Rev. Bruce Grodner, who recently took over the position of ACLC National Executive Director, was also in attendance.
