Stated Clerk supports justice and advocacy work at historic N.C. church, from    on Vimeo . Front-line justice and advocacy work like that being done at First United Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, is at the heart of many Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) congregations. Stated Clerk J. Herbert Nelson, II, and Nora Leccese with the PC(USA) Office of Public Witness spent time on the ground in Charlotte, supporting and encouraging the ministry and mission of First United, a 150 -year-old church founded by former slaves.
