Congratulations First Lady Lou Ann Clayton!!! God bless you!!! ❤️❤️❤️🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

Area Mother LouAnn Clayton
Central Area
Louisiana East First Jurisdiction

A humble spirit, LouAnn Clayton was born and reared in Pineville, Louisiana to the late Superintendent Freeman and Missionary Readie Young. She has been in the Church of God in Christ all of her life. Missionary Clayton was baptized at an early age while serving at her home church, the Antioch Church of God in Christ in Pineville, Louisiana.

Missionary Clayton received the Holy Ghost as a young woman under the leadership of the late Elder Burley LaFleur. She remained a faithful member until she married Elder Leon Clayton, Sr. and joined her father’s church, Wise Street Church of God in Christ, in Alexandria, Louisiana. Together Elder and Missionary Clayton have been married 49 years and were blessed with five children (one deceased), eight grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
Missionary Clayton attended Grambling State University, majoring in Elementary Education. Having a passion for nursing, she later attended Louisiana State University, pursuing a degree in nursing. She secured employment at Pinecrest Support Services where she worked as a Direct Care Worker, and later became a House Supervisor, overseeing the clients and staff in six-unit homes at Pinecrest. Missionary Clayton retired from Pinecrest after 38 loyal years.

Missionary Clayton works even more diligently at her local church in various capacities, wearing many titles. She is president of the women’s department at Young Temple and teaches the Home and Foreign Missions classes. She also serves as the church “Mother” and the Area Mother for the Central Area and 1st Jurisdiction of the Churches of God in Christ.

Missionary Clayton has a passion for the culinary arts and often prepares meals for the sick and shut-in. She has aspirations of becoming an entrepreneur and starting a catering service to help the homeless in the near future.

Her favorite scripture is from the book of Romans which reads, “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39).

Missionary Clayton humbly serves under the leadership of Bishop Alphonso Denson; her State Mother, Dorothy J. Richardson; Superintendent, Robert Price, Sr.; District Missionary, Martha Taylor, and pastor, Elder Leon Clayton, Sr.

The members of Young Temple COCIC grieve the lost of Henry Marshland, a great pioneer for the body of Christ and warrior who had a heart for God’s work. He was faithful to the call until the end. Minister Marshland shared a great love for his family, leaders, church family and the community! He will be missed dearly. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. 🙏🏽❤️

Love ,
Pastor Leon Clayton Sr
1st Lady Lou Ann Clayton and your YT Church Family

Today was a beautiful day for our YT family. We honored our Pastor and First Lady 15th Year Anniversary. We had church on our conference call this morning, a drive by to bless our leaders and ended the day with a bike, bible, blanket, and food give away! Most importantly the word of God was given with prayer for our church and community! Today was a wonderful day for a great cause. In times like these we all need to be lifted and encouraged. Giving back and showing love to our community made our hearts glad!

We also honored the late Supt. Freeman Young Sr and First Lady Readie Young along with Thorne of Grace COGIC, following a candle light memorial. Pastor Huey Long and First Lady Shirley Long thank you for sharing with us!

It was truly a blessing for our community! We thank God for all who donated to make this a great success!! A special thanks @
Re//DEFINED! We pray Gods blessings on all families during this season.

Love ,
Our YT family
Pastor Leon Clayton Sr and 1st Lady Lou Ann Clayton
