Listen to Michelle's Story

As of April 2012, Michelle is an elder and youth director of “Youth Church” at the LaSalle New Life Church in Montreal,
Quebec, Canada—a program she co-founded with her sister, Tammy Clarke, where young people can praise and
worship in unique ways (poetry, music, drama, dance, etc.). Although not hired by the conference as such, Michelle fulfills the role of a pastor. She provides counseling to the youth, visitation, Bible studies to all age groups, the role of church Bible worker, preaching, and programs and social activities for the youth. Michelle was born and raised in Montreal. Her passion has always been winning souls. At 17 she felt God’s call to ministry. She earned a BA in ministerial theology/biblical languages from Oakwood College (University), then an MDiv from Andrews University. Michelle’s ministry focus is evangelism and youth ministries. She desires to make the gospel palatable and relevant to young people and to the
unchurched. She wants God to use her—an ordinary person—in extraordinary ways. What fuels her soul daily is Philippians 1:6: “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perfect [finish] it
until the day of Jesus Christ.”
