Bishop Clement W. Fugh, presiding prelate of the AME 5th Episcopal District, will headline the 7th Annual Community Revival starting Thursday, May 11 through Friday, May 12, at 7 p.m.

The services, sponsored by the Southern California Conference Lay Organization (SCCLO) of the AME Church, will be held at Second AME Church, 5500 S. Hoover Ave., in Los Angeles. The theme is “Laity Called to be a Holy Nation.”

A native of Memphis, Tennessee, Fugh was elected and consecrated as the 131st bishop in 2012. Four years later, he was assigned to his current position where he serves as chief shepherd and administrator over AME churches in the 15 states, including Hawaii, west of the Mississippi River.


Previously, he led several churches in Tennessee, Kentucky and Ohio for more than 30 years and was elected as general secretary and chief information officer of the AME Church.

Dorothy Vails-Weber is the SCCLO president, Exhorter Gwendolyn Williams is the revival chair, the Rev. Carolyn Baskin-Bell is the host pastor and O. Fay Swan is the host Lay Organization president.
