Description

Louis Boyd interviews Jill Clement. Clement talks about her early life in Massachusetts and her decision to attend Piedmont College in Demorest, Ga., where she met her husband, Charles Clement (see FPP -0020). Clement discusses her decades of involvement with the Presbyterian Church, where she advocated for more leadership roles for women and became one of the first female deacons and elders in the church. Clement briefly touches on her time as a missionary in Everett, Kentucky--deep in the heart of coal-mining country--where she attended a church with a congregation that handled snakes.
