The Rev. Titus Clarke Joins Policy Council
LAMPa welcomes the Rev. Titus Clarke as our newest policy council member from the Lower Susquehanna Synod. Pastor Clarke began his ministry, in Liberia, West Africa where he was born, and lived until 1992; when he came to the United States as a result of the Liberian Civil War. He developed and organized the Peoples’ Community Evangelical Lutheran Church in Baltimore, Maryland in 1992 and served as their pastor for several years. He currently serves St. Mark’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in York as Pastor/Redeveloper.
He earned his M.Div. from The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia and has done coursework in Pastoral Counseling pursuant to a Master of Science degree in Spiritual and Pastoral Care at Loyola University Baltimore, MD. He has vast training and experience in church and leadership development. For Pastor Clarke, central to congregations’ development/redevelopment, is forming organic and authentic relationships; that change lives, empower people and transform communities.
He is humble, Spirit driven, faithful and passionate about ministry. Guided by the model of Christ’s Ministry; witnessed to in the Gospel of Luke, Pastor Clarke sees all people as simultaneously saints and sinners, saved and equipped by the grace of God to reflect God’s grace and purpose. He believes in the giftedness of each human being and seeks to create space for each person to live out their calling. He firmly maintains that the calling of the church is to proclaim and work toward extending the Kingdom of God. In this kingdom, swords are beaten into plowshares, spears into pruning hooks; righteousness and justice walk together and each human being is freed to be who God made them to be.
