Hi, my name is Miriam Tierno. My husband John and I have been in ministry for over 20 years. John has held the positions of Associate Pastor, Pastor of Counseling, Executive Pastor and Senior Pastor.
I hold a Master’s Degree in Education from Touro University in NY and graduated Summa Cum Laud. I was a classroom teacher for 21 years having taught in both public and private schools. Our roots go back to a Spirit Filled Pentecostal Church in NY. John was given the opportunity to start as a member, then Deacon, Elder and then ordination to the five-fold ministry. As for myself, I was given the opportunity to serve as a Home Group Leader, VBS teacher, street evangelist, prison ministry as a member of the choir, ministering with special songs on Sundays and last but not least, a small group Worship Leader for two years, where I was the only instrumentalist. Finally, for 5 years as a solo singer and keyboardist for our evening prayer service.
Seven years ago, the Lord made it possible for me to produce a CD, entitled I Live For You. It received considerable air time in Mississippi over an eight month period. I did not pursue this exposure because my goal was never to hit the charts, but to hit the heart of God.
Nearly five years ago, we relocated to Hilton Head, South Carolina. In my home church there, I served as a member of the worship team. I also ministered as a soloist during Tuesday's Prayer Services, and as Congregational Care Director and Deaconess. The Lord has used me on numerous occasions to point the way whenever John and I had to make important spiritual changes in our lives. Once again, we are venturing out, in faith, to see what He has in store for us. Stay tuned, I'm CERTAIN God has great plans for us!
