Ministry Assistant / Finance Secretary
Tessie serves as the First Southern Baptist Church Ministry Assistant/Finance Secretary. She was hired in December of 2014.
Tessie has been a member of FSBC since 2012, when her and her husband became christians and were baptized in the waters of FSBC. She says, "I am so blessed to call my church home, my workplace. Being able to see my church family on a regular basis, and serve our church warms my heart." Her family consists of her husband, Ciro, their sons Tanner, Elijah and Theodore.
"This job has been given to me to do. Therefore, it is a priviledge. There fore, it is a gift. Therefore, it is an offering I make to God. Therefore, it is to be done gladly if it is done for Him. Here, not somewhere else, I may learn God's way. In this job, not in some other, God looks for faithfulness." - Elisabeth Elliot .
