Elder Carl Cornell Clement was born October 28, 1969, to Hayden Clement and Elizabeth Haymes Clement. Elder Clement has three brothers Gary, Sherwood, and Sherwin Clement. He attended the Morning Star Holiness Church in his youth where he was baptized and received the Holy Spirit. Elder Clement attended Halifax County High School and graduated in 1988. Uncertain of where to continue his education, he decided that Danville Community College would be the logical choice. It was in this setting that he began to develop a passion for drafting, but later made the decision to study machine technology. While at D.C.C. he was chosen to take part in a co-op to work for the Naval Surface Weapon Center (N.S.W.C.) in Dahlgren, Virginia for one year. It was during this time that he had a life changing experience. At a Wednesday night prayer service, Elder Clement rededicated his life back to God. Soon after this, he was married to Charlene Ferrell, May 26, 1990. They attended Greater Morning Star in Washington, D.C., and District Elder Charles Johnson was their pastor. When his year at the co-op came to an end, Elder Clement and his wife returned to South Boston, and he commuted to Danville every day to college. This went on for two weeks, and then Elder Clement and his wife moved to Danville to live. They attended Morning Star Holiness Church, under the leadership of Elder Chestley Hargrove. In order to have a place of worship in Danville, Elder Clement received permission from his current pastor to attend church at Christ Temple Apostolic which was under the leadership of Pastor Robert L. Tapper. He began to work in the church, and then five or six years later he became a deacon. As a deacon, he taught bible class and spoke on some Friday and Sunday nights. Next, he became a Sunday school teacher for the junior’s class, a van driver for Sunday school, worked with the prison ministry, and served as Brotherhood President for the church. His duties expanded to the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World. He was the Virginia State Council Brotherhood Vice President for five and a half years. He served as President for the Brotherhood Department of the Virginia State Council for six years. Carl accepted his call to the ministry in 2004 and became an ordained elder July 7, 2006. Next, he was appointed the Assistant Pastor of Christ Temple. Presently, he still holds this position along with being one of the leaders of the children’s choir. Elder Clement received a Bachelor of Science in Religion with a minor Christian Counseling and Church Ministries in 2013 from Liberty University, and he is currently pursuing a Master’s in Divinity with a specialization of Theological Studies. To this very day, he is still pursuing his lifelong goal of being all he can be for Christ.
