Tekoa Pouerie, is an anointed Minister and accomplished nonprofit Executive. Tekoa received Jesus Christ as her Savior at the ripe age of 10 years old. She submitted to the call of ministry at the age of 12 under the tutelage of Dr. Geneva Boyd. At 16 years old she was licensed and ordained in ministry by Apostle R.G. Williams of the World-wide Christian Fellowship Association. Tekoa has always been passionate about exemplifying Christ in both the church and marketplace.
Like most, Tekoa’s passion is derived from pain. She grew up on welfare and before finishing high school she endured the loss of both her parents. Her mother remarried before she passed therefore, her second father was left to raise 5 children as a single father. At an early age, Tekoa had to overcome trauma, depression and loss. With the help of her church, she reversed the stereotypes and became the first person in her family to attend college. While in college, Tekoa founded one of UCF’s fastest growing female Christian organizations, Women’s Prayer Band. After receiving her degree in Criminal Justice, Tekoa launched her ministry and motivational speaking career. This afforded her the opportunity to travel in and out of the U.S. sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and sharing her story of overcoming adversity. As a result, she was given the opportunity to consult program providers on how to effectively work with youth growing up in at risk environments. Seeing that there was a greater need, Tekoa partnered with Dr. Lesia Crumpton- Young and co-authored six workbooks for the “You’ve Got the Power” educational curriculum, which is currently being used in Title 1 schools.
Pursuing her passion of empowering underserved women and girls, Tekoa became a Subject Matter Expert on Childhood Trauma, Domestic Violence and Disproportionate Minority Contact; today she works with Pace Center for Girls National Office and the National Criminal Justice Institute bringing awareness to both issues. As a result of her work, she has received two Congressional Recognitions and was presented with the Sheriff Citation Medal. Additionally, Tekoa has been interviewed on various tv and news shows as well as Ebony Magazine and the Orlando Business Journal. Although, these achievements are commendable, her biggest accomplishment is her family. Tekoa is the mother of 2, Maximus and Bella. She is married to FaithSocial Chief Strategy Officer, Dio Pouerie; together they Pastor Acceleration Church.
