Teresa C. Price
Inspiring, worshiper, reaper and relational are just a few words that have been used to describe Pastor Teresa C. Price of Overflow Worship Center. As a sought after motivational speaker, corporate professional, wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend, she has been a Godly role model for all who come in contact with her.
Raised in Carbondale, IL as a biracial child has taught Pastor Teresa, the importance of keeping her head up during times of adversity. A product of a single parent household, Pastor Teresa and her family at times had no choice but to live in women’s shelters, hotels and with friends while trying to get back on their feet. To help make ends meet, Pastor Teresa would often work a paper route at the tender age of 10. Despite these modest living conditions, however, she stayed encouraged and excelled in school. However, although she was a good student, there were still several voids in her life. She would find out later in life that these voids could only be filled by Christ. It was during her college years that Pastor Teresa was ministered to and accepted Christ as Savior and Lord. Since then, Christ has filled every void and she continues to serve Him with her whole heart.
A woman of balance, Pastor Teresa has been married to the love of her life and college sweetheart, Pastor Walter T. Price, Jr. since May 13, 1995. It is Pastor Teresa’s belief that if not for the unconditional love and support of her husband, her life would not be what it is today. Their union has been further blessed by the addition of their son, Larry Toussaint Price and their God-Daughter Djamilia P. Massinga.
Pastor Teresa is a trailblazer in her family, in her corporate career as a Civil Engineer/Manager and in the community. She repeatedly states that, “God and God alone is the One who allows all of this to be possible…through Him I can be all He wants me to be, do, all He wants me to do, and have all He wants me to have… to living THIS life to the fullest!”
