A product of the Jesus Movement of the 1970s, Vanessa has longed her whole life to be part of a powerful move of God. In 2014, Vanessa sold her belongings and retired from a 26-year career in Education to pursue God’s call on her life to attend the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry. After three life-changing years at BSSM in Redding, she felt God calling her to follow Him once again. This time, she made the move to Austin, TX, anticipating this as her chance to be part of revival she has waited her whole life to see. She is passionate about Jesus and serving the Body of Christ. As a student at BSSM, she regularly volunteered in the Healing Rooms, served on the ministry team at Bethel Church, and was a member of the Bethel Intercessors team.
Vanessa is originally from south Texas, but worked and reared her children in Lubbock, TX. In addition to her two adult children, she has two beautiful grandchildren ages 15 and 10 years who live in California with her son and daughter-in-law. Her daughter lives in Austin and attends Bethel Church Austin.
