KINSTON, N.C. - Aug. 5, 2014 - PRLog -- The Kinston Family Network (KFN) recently celebrated their 5 year anniversary with over 2,300 members and a change in leadership. Angela S. Williams - a Kinston native and esteemed community leader - has accepted the challenge to carry the torch passed on by the group's Founder, Wanda Armstead Smith, and to take the group to the next level. Angela has a proven track record of success and has even earned the “Key to the City” for Kinston, NC. Angela is also a preacher, life coach, author and motivational speaker. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology and Biblical Counseling and is pursuing her Master’s in Psychology. She and her husband (Rudy) are the founders of World for Christ Church in Kinston, a ministry they tenured for 24 years before relocating to Charleston SC in August of 2007.

Angela has recently moved back to the Kinston area in hopes of making a difference where needed. “My heart is to return home and to help with the many problems plaguing our youth, but first we simply must get back to FAMILY!” Angela says. Understanding she can’t do this alone, she is currently developing an Advisory Committee for the KFN and has initiated a worldwide Call To Action to current and former Kinston residents who care about this beloved city. “If you want your community to be a better place to live, don’t just sit back and wait for it to happen. Get involved!” Angela is doing just that! In fact, she has hit the ground running in her new role, developing Action Plans for ways she can get all stakeholders involved. Angela, like many others, is committed to making Kinston a better place to live and return to. She is encouraging other community leaders to step up and do the same, but urges them to be patient. “Realize that making your community a better place to live will not happen overnight. It will take time, energy and money to get the job done. Remember, don’t sit back and wait for it to happen. You have to get involved!”

Angela is the founder of ‘Straight Talk for Women Ministries’, a comprehensive, but candid approach to edifying women in the body of Christ. She is the facilitator for a weekly Tele-Conference each Thursday and hostess of ‘Straight Talk for Women Talk Show’ on BlogTalk Radio. Angela gives all glory to God who has transformed her life, marriage and ministry. Through seminars, retreats, and conferences, she has touched thousands of lives; and literally millions by way of radio and television. Angela has made numerous appearances on Christian television and is recognized by her unique voice and uncanny approach to matters involving women. Her radio program, Straight Talk, is heard by millions in the US and around the world. Just recently, Ireland and Australia have been added to her repertoire.
