Originally from Beckley, West Virginia, Angie received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior in 1994 at the age of 24. She and her husband, AJ, have three sons. Her eldest is 21 with a beautiful baby girl, the middle son is fifteen, and the youngest is twelve. Three boys can keep a working mom very busy but she gets lots of help from her husband, AJ. She and her family are members of Calvary Baptist Church in Clearwater, Florida.
Angie came to serve at NCFTB in September of 2006. Prior to joining us, Angie served as the Office Manager of a physical therapy clinic in Sun City Center, Florida. Her passion is serving Jesus Christ whenever, wherever, and however she can and for the past 19 years that’s been mostly by being a “hands on” mom. Her heart for ministry begins with her own children and extends to helping young mothers in crisis pregnancies through the Pinellas County Pregnancy Center
. Angie is also involved in a non-denominational Christian renewal program called Via de Cristo that holds retreats twice a year to help Christians renew their fire for Christ.
A graduate of the University of South Florida with a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing, Angie has a wide range of experience from working eight years in the financial services industry. Among her many skills are planning seminars, organizing medium sized conventions, providing marketing assistance, customer service support, and managing a small office. She has been given the gift of administration and is excited to be putting this gift to very good use working with our ministry.
