Director of Children's Ministry
Jody was raised in a Christian home and accepted Christ as her personal savior at a young age. She attended a Christian school and learned to serve God in church by helping in Sunday school during her junior and high school years. Jody attended Bob Jones University to pursue a cosmetology license in a Christian setting. In 1989, she was married to Mike and soon after the newlyweds visited T4C at the invitation of a college friend, Gaylord Tsuei. The Tellers settled into the community at T4C serving as Sunday school teachers and getting involved with small groups in the English ministry. Mike and Jody have raised and homeschooled their three children, Jacob, Emily and Jason. Upon beginning the homeschool journey with her family in 2003, Jody began a study plan of her own slowly working towards a degree in education. The opportunity to serve part time as Children's Ministry Director beginning in May 2015 is a culmination of Jody's passion to teach and to bring God's word to children. As Children’s Ministry Director Jody coordinates the children's Sunday school class teachers and curriculum, Boys and Girls Club during Friday night fellowship, and summer Vacation Bible School.
