Meet Carla Clark of Lion’s Roar in East Atlanta

Today we’d like to introduce you to Carla Clark.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Carla. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I have a two-fold story. I am one an educator of over 27 years as well as a minister of the gospel. I started Lion’s Roar Ministries over three years ago. It is a ministry created to help people hear the voice of God in their life. I am married to a pastor who has been in ministry for over 20 years. My mission in life is to help people find their God-ordained spiritual gift and help them to walk in purpose.

In building my ministry, I am always researching the topic of prophecy. So, instead of always researching information, I decided to write my own books.

I have authored several books on the prophetic. the titles include Finding my Roar: a prophetic training manual, Finding the Lion within A Prophet’s Journal, 30 days of Prophetic Activations. I also have two journals that I published for people who want to write their dreams down.

The books can be found on Amazon.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
This road has not been easy. When you start a business, organization or ministry from scratch the process can be daunting. It comes with its ups and downs. The struggle comes with finding committed people to help drive the vision and the ebb and flow of the participants. Resources can be a struggle as well. In this age of social media, you either have to pay someone or learn how to do it your self. Right now, I manage my own social media, I create my own graphics and I maintain my own website. I look forward to the day when I will have a media manager to manage all of that. Time is also an issue. Because I work a full-time job, I have to divide my time between ministry opportunities and still maintain my work schedule.

What else should our readers know?
Lion’s Roar was created to help the participants to hear the voice of God and develop their spiritual gifts. It is an established ministry for all ages. I teach men, women, and even children how to find their spiritual gifts with a focus on the gift of prophecy.

I facilitate this teaching through small groups in a workshop style classroom setting. As a matter of fact, I have an opportunity to travel to Obusai, Ghana to teach in a ministry there.

I am most proud of the people that have come through the classes. There is tremendous growth for the people over time as they commit to using and impacting the world.

The classes provide a safe, non-threatening environment for the participant to practice their gifts. They can succeed and fail in a safe place.

What was you like growing up?
Growing up, I was a very precocious young lady. I challenged authority at every turn. I was and still am a vivacious reader that loved learning about new things. I read several books a week. Instead of playing games or hanging out with friends, I could often be found reading books. I guess like most teenagers, I loved the latest trends. I was seen as quiet by those that did not know me. In truth, I am a serious introvert to the “imp” degree. For those that know me, I will talk your head off. When asked to pray or prophecy to others, people say I am long-winded. Go figure!
