First Lady Theresa Nelson
Co-founder/Youth Director/Daycare Director
Meet Lady Theresa Nelson – she is often reference by her endearing husband of forty plus years as the better half of the Nelson team. Lady Nelson is the entrepreneurial leader of a new catering business known as T’s catering and the director at Grace Angel Academy Daycare. Lady Nelson retells her story of having dreams of becoming a cosmetologist where she attended Massey’s School of Beauty. As she recalls, “those were not the plans God had in mind for me.”
Instead, Lady Nelson took business courses which helped her to land an executive position at The Houston Chronicle. She worked for the renowned newspaper company a great number of years prior to resigning. As a stay at home mom, Lady Nelson cooked, sewed, and cared for relatives and neighboring children in her community. She served several years as the Superintendent of the Christian Education Department and on the finance board of her home church, The Community of Faith in Houston, Texas.
Not long thereafter, did Overseer Nelson receive the call to begin a ministry in Brenham, Texas. Together, they have worked to build the ministry we now know as The Fellowship of Faith. Lady Nelson wears many hats including that of supporting her husband. Some of the ministries carried under her leadership include the Women of the Word ministry, Grace Youth Ministry, and the Sounds of Grace music ministry. In addition, she has served as the director of Grace Angels Academy Daycare for nearly fifteen years.
One of Lady Nelson’s favorite hobbies is cooking and birthed out of that passion, she has developed T’s Catering; a delectable food and baking business which serves the greater Washington and Harris county areas. Lady Nelson can also be found sharing her wisdom and time with younger men and women teaching them about God’s love, self-acceptance, and of course, cooking. Although she is a mother to Tray and Brandee, she is a mother and grandmother figure and mentor to many. She is the epitome of the Proverbs 31 woman and the work of her hands is indeed blessed.
