The Angelsong Ministries, Inc. Vision_____________________________
By Pastor Shala Martin-Smalley, Founder/President of Angelsong Ministries, Inc.
2 And Jehovah answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tablets, that he may run that
Thank you so much for allowing us to share the Vision God has given us with you. I am Shala Martin-Smalley.
I am a Minister, a Pastor, and a Barrel Racer with a desire to make a difference in the world I live in, the industry I compete
in, and the youth that carry our future. There are so many voices in the world today, our desire is to show them that there
is "nothing impossible to them that believe"!
How we will reach them?
Through outreach. Angelsong is unique to our area. We are focused on barrel racing because that's what we do
and what we know. There are more barrel racers in Central Oklahoma condensed than any other state in the nation. A large percentage
of those barrel racers are kids, teens, and young adults. A report was released by USDA Washington, D.C March 2, 1999 and by the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), Agricultural
Statistics Board, U.S. Department of Agriculture that said the State of Oklahoma had over 170,000 head of horses. Equine events
are a huge part of the Oklahoma culture. If you have ever seen a young girl and her horse, you know the intense connection
and bond that they have. When we can help that young girl reach her goals in her passion - barrel racing - we can change her
life. We can give her hope, and an assurance that her dreams are, in fact, attainable.
It is our goal to instill in these children the things that are so often lacking in the kids of today:
Honesty Integrity Self Motivation Self Discipline
Accountability Self Respect Community Service
Work Ethics Stability Perseverance Patience
Responsibility Faith Trust Sportsmanship
We instill Biblical values and standards, and a desire to share the God given talents and abilities
with which they have been blessed with those around them. We encourage a deeper relationship with God and a commitment to
purity. We do this through various outreach ministries such as these:
Youth Ministry & Mentoring
Beginning Speed Event and Barrel/Pole Clinics
Angelsong Ministries Rodeo Team
Outreach Ministries to all ages
Cowboy Church and Praise and Worship Services
Production of Christian Based Barrel Races
Ministry Retreats & Youth Rallies
Angelsong Ministries, Inc. is made up of many families and volunteers from all over the state of Oklahoma. Our
Leadership consists of President & Pastor Shala Martin-Smalley, and our Board of Directors of Apostle Lydia Ruth Smith,
Don Martin, and Pastor Bruce Smalley.
Currently consist of our strong and sturdy 150’X300’ pipe fence arena
and 4 horse pens, but we look out and see all of it’s potential for the future!
Sherman, (commonly known as "The Shermanator")
above top two left pics, is our beginner to intermediate lesson horse for kids that do not
yet have their own horses to compete on. He’s taught many a kid the patterns and basics of speed events. 13 yr
old APHA Gelding, The Master Key, is beginning training
on speed events to be used as an intermediate lesson horse for private lessons and clinics. 11
yr old APHA Mare Partee Easy is one of Shala’s competition horses as well as a backup horse for Angelsong Ministries
Rodeo Team Members and advanced students. 9 yr old AQHA Mare Parrs Easybug Gypsy, is Shala’s most competitive competition horse at this time. 3 yr old The
Masters Miracle, is currently in training with Dan Megehee of of 3 Crosses Arena in
Ada, OK and will eventually begin barrel training also and someday will also be used for teaching students in the future.
All of these horses were donated to Angelsong Ministries, Inc. by different individuals
for use in competition and the ministry. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Our Mission in simple. Our heart’s desire is to reach out to this generation of youth and empower them
to become all God created them to be through mentoring
and teaching programs helping them learn more about the sport of Barrel Racing, as well as being a support system to their
families and friends by providing them with the help that they need to raise a confident, responsible, accountable, disciplined,
productive, and victorious child in today’s world of deteriorating values and standards. We intend to change the industry
of barrel racing one soul at a time, and provide families races to compete at that reinforce the strong moral values they
are working to instill in their children. We are providing Ministry Retreats, Youth Rallies, and Cowboy Church Services for
the families that live the Rodeo lifestyle and spend most of their time on the road competing so they can stay strong, stay
focused, and stay blessed. Our Mission is to be a lifeline.
Lifeline - 1: a line (as a rope) used for saving or preserving life: as a:
a line along the outer edge of the deck of a boat or ship b: a line used to keep contact with a person (as a diver or astronaut) in
a dangerous or potentially dangerous situation 2: something
regarded as indispensable for the maintaining or protection of life
