Brena says that, "Children's ministry is the perfect fit for our young family. My life's purpose has always been to share the gospel and spend eternity with as many people as possible in heaven.

Teresa Harmening is an anointed and powerful conference speaker as well as a gifted worship leader who has had a heartfelt love for music since she was a small child. Since the age of three, Teresa has been playing piano by ear and singing praise to the Lord. She continues to use that gift for the Lord as she ministers as praise and worship leader and women’s conference speaker. She has ministered as church pianist and worship leader at Leesville Baptist Church for 33 years. Her passion and enthusiasm for the Lord and His Word are evident as she leads God’s people in worship.

You will be blessed as she shares her testimony through the songs she has written and by the unique way she blends the music with God’s Word. As God opens doors of ministry opportunities for Teresa to speak to women, her joyful enthusiasm challenges the audience to have a hunger and thirst for God by falling in love with His Word. As a songwriter and as a result of what God has done in her own life through scripture memory, Teresa’s passionate desire is to encourage women to hide God’s Word in their hearts and to help women experience the joy of meditating on God’s Word. Equipping women with tools to help them grow in the Word and challenging them to seek His face in His Word is the heart of her ministry. Teresa’s love for the Word is evident in her two CD’s of scripture verses put to music she has written entitled “WORDSONGS I” and “WORDSONGS II.” She also has a CD of original songs that she has written entitled “AWAKENING.
Teresa and her husband Boyd have been married for over 35 years and have two grown children.  The Harmening family lives in the small community of Addielou, near Paris, Texas.
