Lay pastor profile

Teena, her husband Orland, and their son A.J. moved to NZ to work and live on a local dairy farm. Teena and Orland studied at a Theological College in the Philippines, and served on church staff in the areas of women’s ministry and worship. Since coming to Ellesmere, they have gathered the Filipino community together, forming home groups, and a weekly worship service. Teena is gifted in evangelism, discipleship training and small group development. Orland, while working fulltime on the farm, contributes greatly as worship leader and supporter of Teena; and A.J. is great on drums!
