Pastor Melinda Clark
by Shana Thomas
Her smile speaks compassion, concern, and empathy that will draw all men from every race, creed, and ethnicity. When she enters into the room her stature speaks holiness, uniqueness, vigilance, and most importantly, a woman of God. She takes charge with every step, her mouth speaks with great assurance, and her body is covered by the holy armor of God, giving off a vast light to those walking in darkness.
Pastor Clark has a heart for people and has constantly and compassionately poured out her love, resources, and assistance to those in need. She teaches the uncompromised Word of God and believes in "Restoring Hope, seeking the lost, and strengthening the believer". Her objective is to impact the Tallahassee community, and the nation where transformation must take place. She firmly believes that ministry is greater than just preaching, it’s about changing lives. Her enjoyment is equipping saints to become disciples for Jesus Christ through her teachings and interceding.
Pastor Clark’s most heartfelt sermons were, "The Power of the P" and "I Heard I Became and I Believe" She has truly touched the lives of those underneath her voice during the sermons where she targets the hearts of the people.
Pastor Melinda Clark is truly a pastor after God’s own heart. She is a loving wife and a mother whom God has instilled Godly wisdom in the nurturing and upbringing of her children. She is married to a mighty man of God, Brother Dwayne Clark, the love of her life, and the mother of three, whose names are Allen, Courtney, and Landis. Along with her three biological children, God has blessed her with many spiritual children where she has made a tremendous difference within their lives.
The response to the call into the ministry was "Yes Lord." She accepted the call with an open heart and a willing mind to allow God to manifest His glory within every area of her life. Today, she is continuing in pressing toward the mark of the high calling of Jesus Christ. God has positioned her in a place where she can experience God’s love daily within herself and the lives of those who are attached to her. The work is truly plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore she chose to become a faithful servant in the up building of the kingdom and will not grow weary in well doing.
I believe that my pastor, Pastor Melinda Clark deserves a retreat. She is a full time employee and Full time pastor along with many other roles she has to play. One thing with her is she never opporates half heartedly. My desire is for her to finally get an opportunity to be refreshed, because the load of my pastor is heavy. We are a fairly new ministry. I see my pastor labor diligently in conditions she shouldn't have been able to survive. Every Sunday and Wednesday she is teaching the word of God while having to handle all the sheep because the laborers are few. She truly has a heart for God and his people.
