Tekoa Pouerie, is an anointed speaker and accomplished 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 16 under the tutelage of Dr. Geneva Boyd. Tekoa is passionate about empowering women and communities and has built a long-standing career and ministry around it.
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. She knew God brought her through her storm to be an inspiration, both in church and in the community. She reversed the stereotypes and became the first person in her family to graduate from college. After receiving her degree in Criminal Justice, Tekoa launched her motivational speaking career. This afforded her the opportunity to travel around the world sharing her story and consulting 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 women and communities, Tekoa became a Subject Matter Expert on Childhood Trauma, Domestic Violence and Disproportionate Minority Contact; she works with Pace Center for Girls Headquarters 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 business growth expert, Dio Pouerie; together they Pastor Acceleration Church.
