Carolyn McClendon, Director of Faith Ministries

Recently I had the opportunity to sit down with Rev. Carolyn McClendon, Ed.D, Director of Faith Ministries for the Alliance of AIDS Services (AASC).
I had chosen to write about World AIDS day for the blog because I really didn't know much about it. When I arrived, I told Carolyn this and explained to her that I wanted to know more because I hadn't been personally affected by someone with AIDS. She politely smiled as if she was thankful that I gave her something to talk about- because she was certain that I had been affected and I just wasn't aware. Carolyn has worked with the Alliance, or its former counterparts, for over 12 years. She's dedicated her life to the prevention and education of HIV/AIDS and to the support for those with the disease. Specifically she serves as their Director of Faith Ministries and being an ordained minister, she has a stole that she wears when she preaches. Upon that stole, she has written the names of all the friends from AASC that she has lost to AIDS each year. This year, she has 22 new names to add and no space to write them. When she reads a report that "people don't die from AIDS anymore" or overhears someone say that "this crisis is over," she thinks of that stole, a harrowing reminder of the loss that AIDS continues to bring.

Pastoral Reflection by Rev. Carolyn McClendon, Director, Alliance of AIDS Services, Raleigh

I recently spoke with Rev. Dr. Carolyn McClendon, director of Faith Ministries, at Alliance of AIDS Services-Carolina.
Carolyn has been with the Alliance of AIDS Services for 14 years, but she has been ministering to HIV/AIDS patients most of her adult life. Carolyn is a staff of one, so she is extremely busy. Just this week, she spent all of 1 day in meetings, lost 3 patients, and was waiting on a call concerning 2 other patients at the end stage of their disease . . . and that is just the activities that I know about. She was most gracious to take the time to talk to me about her ministry. She loves what she does and believes it is what God has called her to do. Carolyn's organization believes HIV/AIDS is not a divine punishment, but is a part of the mystery of living, like any other illness. Carolyn tells me there is still a lot of fear and lack of education among people concerning HIV/AIDS. Many people still believe that you can contract AIDS by casual contact. Carolyn says, "If HIV/AIDS was viewed as a health issue instead of a judgment, we would treat them differently." We talked about what churches can do to help minister to those with HIV/AIDS. She says, "People need to look beyond color and status and represent a God Who loves all people. Carolyn says, "Care teams are a major part of what we do. Currently, we have 40 care teams that minister to 60 care partners. The teams are trained to partner with someone who is living with the virus to empower that person to find a safe and sacred space. These care teams are from organizations of faith. Carolyn has a waiting list of people with the virus who are waiting for a care team. Carolyn needs more permanent staff to help with the ministry, but as with a lot of organizations in this economy, the funds simply are not available. She could not do all that needs to be done without the help of volunteers, churches, interns, chaplains, and communities of faith. One of the churches who partners with Carolyn and the Faith Ministry Program started a program called "change for change. This program collects change to buy bus tickets for those with HIV/AIDS who need assistance. Needs are met by donations of food, clothing, and other items. The recipients of the bus tickets and other items are told that the gift is from God through a faith community. Carolyn is passionate about helping people with HIV/AIDS and prays that others will move beyond the stigmas associated with the disease and show compassion to people living with the disease. Carolyn says, "Wherever they are today, we move forward to let them know a God who loves them."
