Willie & Hannah Clark
Deacon - Awana, VBS, Junior Church
Willie was born and raised his first 12 years in Southern California. In his sixth year of school his family moved to the Willamette Valley in Oregon. Only through divine intervention did his parents enroll him into a Christian school and it was there, when he was in the middle school, that he trusted Christ as his savior.
Willie met his wife, Hannah, on eHarmony in October 2007 and knew right away that she was the one the Lord had for him. After a short engagement they were married in July 2008. Hannah was married once before but unfortunately the Lord took him home early in their marriage. Although Hannah and her first husband, Gabe, were married only a short time, they had a little boy together named Gabriel. Willie and Hannah have had 3 other boys together as well: Billy, Boaz and Hudson, followed by their latest adopted blessing, Samuel.
As deacon, Willie’s oversees DBC children’s ministries. Those include Sunday School, Jr. Church, AWANA, and VBS (Vacation Bible School). Hannah is a great support in all these children’s ministries and nursery, often filling in when needed. She also leads Jr. Church for ages 2-4 and is very hospitable when hosting SALT Group in the fall, winter, and early spring in their home. Willie and Hannah feel very blessed to have the opportunity to serve at Discovery Baptist.
Willie has been a school teacher for 20 years (currently at Washington Youth Academy — National Guard Challenge) and he enjoys coaching baseball in the summer months.
