Angela and Brian Clark
Angela Clark: Worship Pastor
Brian Clark: Leader of A-Men’s Breakfast and head of Landscaping
Brian and Angela have been married for 29 years. Angela was raised in Myrtle Beach and attended Socastee Pentecostal Church growing up. Brian is from Charlotte, NC and attended Northside Christian Academy and Baptist Church. Brian moved to the Myrtle Beach area during his high school years and met Angela shortly after at Socastee High School. The rest is history. They have been blessed with two beautiful children who are now adults with families of their own; Ashlyn and Kyle Vermeer have given them a grandson, Conner and their son, Chase (who also sings), gave them a granddaughter, Lily. Angela is the owner of Perfect Reflections Salon for the last 18 years and Brian was a police office who left the force to give his full attention to his growing business, BC Landscaping. Angela has been singing since age 5. She has grown up surrounded by gospel music and will continue to use the gift that God has given her by serving with Solid Rock’s Praise and Worship Team. Brian sings in the choir, serves as an Usher, is leader of Amen’s Breakfast, as well as takes care of the grounds at Solid Rock. Both have been extensively involved with local youth. Brian has coached baseball and football and Angela coached the JV, Varsity, and Competition Cheerleading Squads at Socastee High School. Both have volunteered and worked with the Socastee High Performing Arts for the last 7 years. This church has become a home for them and although they have known God since childhood, both have grown spiritually since they became members of the Solid Rock family.
