Teri Urban

Born on the earth, August 6.   Born into His glorious Kingdom, Easter month 1987.   I am single with 2 daughters and 2 grand daughters.

Salvation:  I was pregnant with my second daughter, and while cleaning the house, I paused vacuuming to change channels from cartoons to something more adult when I happened on Jimmy Swaggart’s program just at the time he was giving an invitation to accept Christ.   I had been struggling with my salvation for several months feeling as if I didn’t do something soon , I would physically die.  I accepted the Lord right there on my living room floor with the vacuum still in my hands.  I found that I understood more in the Assemblies of God and soon filled with the Holy Ghost.
I went through a horrible divorce shortly after being saved and lost custody of my then two small girls to their father.  I knew God wasn’t going to leave me, nor was this setback a set up for failure, but for my COMEBACK!!   The girls grew, and went to services with me.  Their dad didn’t secure their faith, but I was sure to make sure they had covering in the Lord.  Today they both have accepted Jesus and are raising their families knowing Jesus as Lord.
I cannot remember exactly when I came to be apart of Refreshing Winds Ministry, but after the first time being a guest, I knew it was where my hand needed to be.  I can tell you that this ministry has walked with me throw some of my healing process, and be a direct result of my discovering my joy that was stolen from me.  It is because of this team, I can say they are my sisters in Christ.
I work in my local church, Abundant Life Christian Center in La Marque Texas under Pastor Walter and Cindy Hallam.  My membership is in it’s 17th year.  During my time there, I have attended bible school, worked in the media, drama, and helps ministry.  Been on several outreaches and currently serving in both sound booth during services and feeding homeless in the inner city of Houston every other week.  I attended Ordination training and services through Joan Hunter Ministry, receiving my ordination in October of 2012.
I walk in His anointing daily, and my favorite scriptures are IS 40:31 and Jer 29:11.
