Terri Talley has always loved working with children. Even from a young age, she served as a student helper in Vacation Bible School and in preschool, Mission Friends at her home church in Mesquite, Texas. Upon graduating from Texas A&M with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in education, Terri taught nine years of elementary school. After the birth of her second child, she became a stay-at-home mother. Seeking a close knit community and a church where they could serve faithfully, Terri and her husband joined New Life First Baptist Church in the Spring of 2012. She served in VBS, Extended Care and in the infant Sunday School class before gradually moving into the role of Co-Children’s Coordinator. Terri has been married to Benjie for 12 years and they have three children: Ty (9), Rachael (7) and Alyssa (5).
