Terrell and Taneisha have their beginnings in Roosevelt high school, Yonkers, NY. As high school sweethearts, they remained together and married in 2002. Life began quickly for the Pugh’s, purchasing their first home one year later, along with the arrival of their first child. It was only two years later in 2004 they both entered active ministry. Their journey has not gone without tribulation with the loss of their daughter Gabrielle Hadassah Pugh in 2006. While these and other challenges were being experienced, God was imparting them with godly wisdom through their family, leaders, and life lessons. Today, they have seven beautiful children, a growing ministry, and a successful business. They have a passion for studying and teaching God's Word. Leisurely, they enjoy exploring the great outdoors, traveling, road tripping, theme parks, ziplining, and a good movie.
