More About Teresa Nelson

* A Passionate MIssion

Flexible and fun, Teresa shares with audiences a variety stories of faith from her own life and from Scripture.  Her greatest joy is seeing people come to the precious understanding that they were meant to be redeemed by God, and live in His soul-healing grace and thrive in HIs eternal refuge of  love.  As a 10 year old farm girl, she turned her life over to Christ for His forgiving, transforming, and keeping, and is very thankful every day. 

* A Childhood Prayer

Being adopted, her childhood was full of wondering about  her "real" identity and family.  Her adoptive parents were wonderful and she always felt safe and secure, but there were lingering questions and prayers deep within her heart. God in His Sovereign Grace, brought her to her birth family at the age of 30, and she bravely shares with audiences the hand of God in her very unique story of pain, purpose and peace. 

*Calling,  Career and Cancer

Teresa is a pastor of a rural MN congregation.  She holds her credentials as an ordained minister through the International Ministerial Association.

Much of her work and ministry has been helping people who are in need.  For several years, she worked as a case manager guiding and teaching people who lived in poverty.  

She was given the opportunity to experience cancer, and travel the challenging road of treatment and recovery.  With that experience behind her, she moved on to become the executive director of a Christian caregiving organization.  A special joy was developing a Christian cancer support group within the nonprofit, ministering to patients through their illnesses. 

In recent years, "I'm going to jail," became a common phrase of hers, while pastoring and working as a high school teacher, She taught academics and life skills to incarcerated adults.  God has captured her heart to minister to the inmates on a regular basis, and is doing so still today.  

* A Call To Write, and more

The ache in the hearts of the inmates and their desire to know God in a powerful, life-changing fashion led her to write the book, Tender Mercies for Tough Moments: a 31 Day Journey into the Blessings of God.  Her heart was stirred to bring the unconditional, redeeming love of God through Christ to ALL people who wanted more of God, or had nowhere to turn in times of trouble, or no one to bless them. 

For extra-curricular fun, as a licensed auctioneer, Teresa helps nonprofits and churches gain profits through live auctions.  That is just plain fun for her.  

A Fun Family

Teresa and her husband, Steve, enjoy the wildlife on their farm, their four grown children, their spouses, and nine absolutely adorable grandchildren.  For refreshment, she believes there is nothing quite like drinking very good coffee, while engaging in great conversation with exceptional grand friends. She would love for you to be one of them!
