Who is Angela Clinton
My life is written by God. I am lucky enough to play a Small Role. Here's to a Beautiful Story.
"The question is not what we intended ourselves to be, but what He intended us to be when He made us." ~ C.S. Lewis
We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps. - Proverbs 16:9
I currently work full-time for the Church of God in Christ, Inc as their Online Content Manager. I manage the Website Content, Social Media, and Brand Presence of the web. I also provide graphic support and function in a variety of other capacities for the Church. In addition to that, I am the Co-Owner of OptimzingYourFaith.com - a company that provide web design services, Social Media Strategies, and many other services to churches, ministries and businesses. I have mad it a point to continually sharpen my skills in coding, brand marketing, graphic design, and social media. It may seem that I "have it all together", but that is not quite true and it has definitely not always been the case...
While attending the University of Texas at Austin on a Full Paid Academic Scholarship, I began working at Dell Computers. My plan was to work at Dell until Law School, where I planned to focus on Corporate Law. Unbeknownst to me, God had a very different plan for my life. You see, I was not saved at this point in my life and to be totally honest I did not think I needed God. When you do not have a committed relationship with Christ, many times you make very poor choice. That is exactly what I did. I ended up pregnant which caused me to lose my scholarship as a stipulation of this scholarship was that I had to be single with no dependents. But God used everything the devil meant for bad and turned it around for my good.
When ended up moving from Austin, TX to the Houston, TX area I began working for a Software Company which is the largest member and customer management software in the world. I continued to gain invaluable knowledge and experience in this field in a wide array of areas - including Web Design and Web Development. After God saved me, sanctified me, and filled me with His precious Holy Ghost, I became very involved in church. I never knew the number of churches that did not have websites. Also, I never knew how many churches had sub-par websites for which they drastically overpaid. However, God knew and He had a plan.
I continue to develop and fine-tune my skills in web design, graphics and social media - being largely self-taught because I had been taught in school and at home how to think for myself. I also have always had a love for reading, which has helped me in innumerable ways. With over a decade in this industry, it has become my passion to help churches and ministries spread the message of the Gospel of Christ. As a member of the Church of God in Christ, God has allowed me to become the Online Content Manager for the National Church - an opportunity that I am humbled and honored to have been given. I truly know that all things work together for our good, because God has done, and continues to do, just that in my life!
In addition to that, God has allowed me to prosper in both my business, OptimizingYourFaith.com and my ministry Angela Clinton Ministries. I give Him all of the glory for what He has done in my life and I believe we have not yet seen the half of it!<----
