O’Neal Clark has accepted the position as Minister of Music for the Hope of Sparta Church
O’Neal Clark has accepted the position as Minister of Music for the Hope of Sparta Church in
Sparta, MO. Sue Ann’s qualification as Minister of Music is a task that she has prepared for her
entire life. Beginning in the Children’s Choir at the age of three at Seminole Baptist Temple in
Springfield, MO, her musical gifts have been heard by thousands.
Following a long run in the Music Capital of the World in Branson, Sue Ann has been
traveling as a music evangelist across the nation. Recording a radio favorite written by John
Stallings, “Touching Jesus” reached the top ten of the Christian Country Charts sustaining on
that chart for nearly a year. And what has become a fan favorite written by Sue Ann as a tribute
to her Dad, “The American Farmer” was soon to follow.
Sue Ann hosted a tourist outreach in Branson every Sunday for a number of years located at the
IMAX theatre called “Celebrate Sunday”. Celebrate Sunday became the name of her ministry
and thereafter she was ordained by the Sanctuary of Hope Church in Branson by Pastors Sam
Kaunley and Dr. Berl Best. Keeping this ordination, Sue Ann joins Pastors Michael and Kayte
Hamilton as they become a ministry team in this new “Missions” church, Hope of Sparta.
Hope of Sparta Church, a non-denominational church, began January 2011 and has recently
moved to the century old location on the corner of North and Scott Street in Sparta. Besides
special events and Sunday Services, Hope of Sparta will present a good old fashioned Sunday
sing monthly. The once a month events called “Hope Sings” will highlight local talents as well
as familiar names to Gospel Music.
For information regarding the “Hope Sings” upcoming events or about Hope of Sparta Church,
