TeSchara is originally from Trumbull, CT. and is the youngest of 2 children born to Deacon James and Betti Teel. She started singing at the age of 3 in “The Starlight Choir” under the direction of Reverend Michael Cummings and the late Reverend Dr. Maxine Durham, at her home church East End Baptist Tabernacle Church. God gave her a gift to sing for Him, and a passion to Worship Him. Even at a young age, she saw how lyrics of The Word of God, coupled with melodies and instruments really drew her and others closer to God. TeSchara moved to Jacksonville, Fl. In the late 1990’s to attend Jacksonville University. Shortly after graduating, she began to attend Circle of Faith Ministries under the leadership of Pastor Joseph McRoy and Pastor Johnny Wells, where she gave her life to Christ.
Soon after receiving Christ, TeSchara began writing. She wrote many songs, but they did not go any further than her notebook, until one day God spoke to her and said, the songs that I have given you will never reach the world sitting in your notebook. She quickly took heed and began her journey to record. God is the source and the strength of TeSchara’s life, pleasing Him is always what she aims to do. She loves touching the hearts and minds of people to encourage them that if they only believe, trust and obey God’s Word, all things are possible. She loves people, and her goal is to be very instrumental in advancing The Kingdom of God with more people who are truly on fire for The Lord, and want an actual real relationship with Him, not just protocol, rules and religion.
TeSchara is currently the Psalmist for BeautyForAshes International Ministries under the leadership of Apostle Felicia Stanley. TeSchara’s favorite scripture is Matthew 6:33-34. But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right…the attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also. So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (Amplified) She believes that as we seek Him FIRST! And love one another unconditionally, everything else will fall in line.
