Angela Fusilier is the new women’s ministries coordinator for the Northern California Conference. A Sacramento Capitol City church member, she has been active in ministry for decades.
“We are very happy Angela has joined our NCC team,” said President Marc Woodson. “She has a real calling for ministry to women, and I know her leadership will be much appreciated.”
A native of Ohio, Fusilier served as lifestyle facilitator in the medical missionary work of New Life Health Institute in Ashtabula. She then moved to California, serving as lifestyle-facilitator at Weimar Health Institute. She earned her Master of Social Work from California State University, Sacramento, and currently serves as a social worker for Sacramento County.
I want to create and provide safe spaces for women within the church culture.
Fusilier is a co-founder of the Rites of Passage Youth Program, Young Ladies’ and Men’s Ministry, at the Capitol City church. She is passionate about serving women, stating, “I want to create and provide safe spaces for women within the church culture.”
As she begins her new role, one of her goals is to foster a ministry for women at the local level. “I want to focus on mining the resources in our various churches and communities,” as there is a “component for women’s ministries in every church—even if it’s not formally developed.”
She is eager to get started in her new position. “I look forward to working with the NCC Women’s Ministries Advisory Council, including my assistant coordinator, Janice Nelson,” she said.
Fusilier is an avid downhill skier who also loves water sports. She has been married for 22 years to Erick Fusilier, an elder at the Capitol City church.
Her life verse is Hebrews 2:11: “Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters” (NIV). “This is such a life-giving statement,” Fusilier said. “The God of the universe is not ashamed to call me His family—His sister. It has become my desire to motivate and empower others to walk in the fullness of life provided by the Savior of all, Christ the Lord!”
