Teresa is married to Dr. J. Eric Davis, Senior Pastor at Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church, Shelby, NC. They have been married since Nov. 25, 1979. She and Eric have two wonderful sons, Alex 34, (married to Amberlee), and Tyler 30, (married to Stephanie). She is a proud “Mimi” to Eli, who was born Oct. 31, 2017 and to Anderson, born on September 30, 2019.
This is Teresa’s third time serving as Interim Music Director at Pleasant Ridge, and she has a great passion for sharing her love of Christian music with everyone. Teresa is also employed at Gardner-Webb University and began working in the Christian Life and Service Office there in 2003. Through her years there, she has the opportunity to minister to young college students on a day to day basis. Leading student mission trips with Eric is one aspect of her job that she loves the most!
Teresa asked the Lord into her heart when she was nine years old and lives a life of great joy and gratitude for how He has walked along beside her throughout her journey. Along with spending time with her family, Teresa has a love for music, missions and a persistent passion for women’s ministries. She enjoys speaking, leading bible studies and organizing women’s retreats, but she says that nothing replaces the one on one, face to face encounters with one another.
