Dr. Teresa Hairston Celebrates Ordination and 25 Years of Service
25 years ago, Teresa Hairston stepped into the Gospel music industry as a songwriter/ arranger. After writing for artists including Albertina Walker, Georgia Mass Choir, Bishop Jeff Banks/Revival Temple Choir, she took her gifts and talents into the marketing arena, first at Savoy Records and then to Benson Records. During her tenure at Savoy, Hairston began a four-page newsletter called SCORE. At the time, she was a divorced mother with three children; and she was working two jobs. She managed to put together $300 to start SCORE, and many predicted that she would fail, but God saw her through, and 22 years later, SCORE is now Gospel Today magazineâ€”the #1 Christian Lifestyle Magazine in the world! Adding to that legacy, Hairston founded the Gospel Heritage Foundation in 1996. Now, 15 years later, Heritage is blessing ministries, pastors and artists with its dynamic teaching, preaching, praise and worship offerings.
Recently Dr. Hairston was elevated in the gospel preaching ministry and ordained! Congratulations, Dr. Hariston, we know that God has many more years of service in store as you entire this new season of you life and ministry.
