Teresa wears many hats...
Bible Study Leader
Helping lead this ministry.
Teresa was born in Philidelphia PA, and grew up as a PK (Pastor's Kid) of a Mennonite preacher.
She and her husband, Dave, have two children. Megan, who is the oldest. Ethan the youngest. Both attend Taylor University, which is Teresa and Dave's alma mater.
As someone who knows first hand what it's like to walk the journey with a family member who has cancer, she walked with her family as her mother battled cancer. Her mom passed as a result of that battle.
Her step-mom fought the disease as well, and most recently her father left this earth to be with those he loves, including his Savior.
Teresa knows firsthand the pain of loss and the struggle of the fight against cancer.
Teresa began her work at Gilead as a board member. She served as board President and VP numerous times.
It was her mother's death that catapulted her to a level of compassion that lead her to join the board of Gilead Ministries.
Then, in 2006, with God's direction and a burden to serve, Teresa joined the staff.
Her role as Assistant Director and Volunteer Coordinator allows her to not only impact lives through her own ministry to people, but replicate her
compassion, the driving force behind her relationship with Jesus.
Teresa loves people and it's evident in all she does.
