Telisa was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana but was raised in Houma. She is one of five children. She has been married to Phil since 1982 and has two married sons. They have four grandchildren. Their favorite pastime is enjoying time with the grand-babies on the weekends.
Telisa’s family was active in church during her childhood. At the age of 12 years old she accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. She dedicated her life to God at that time and knows that it is the best decision she has ever made. Telisa has been at Bayou Blue Assembly since 1994. She has served in various areas of ministry. In 1998, while cleaning the church she asked God, “If ever there is an area of ministry where I could be of service on staff, would you please consider me?” Just months after that prayer she was approached and asked to work in the church office on a part-time basis. She knew that God had heard and answered her prayer. Eleven months later she became full time as the church secretary/bookkeeper and has enjoyed her job ever since. Telisa teaches a Discipleship Class for our Sunday Morning Live and loves to share the Word of God and watch people grow in Christ.
