Paul was a passionate theologian, gardener, scholar, poet. and lover of the ocean, mountains and sky. He drank in life and saw each day as a gift. His love for his family and friends was wide and deep.

For the last 50 years, Paul served as pastor, an international interim pastor, Christian educator, mentor and clergy coach. Paul’s thirst for knowledge and a deeper understanding of God’s love for the world was threaded throughout his relationships.

Paul is survived by his wife Brenda Rozier Clark; their two children David Paul (Bronwyn) Clark and Elizabeth Clark (Victor) Thasiah; and four granddaughters Eden, Athena, Marenna and Maeve.

Paul and Brenda’s church home, First Baptist Church of the City of Washington, DC, is hosting the service. Technical questions about the service can be sent to office@firstbaptistdc.org.
