Elizabeth was born in Argentina to the home of Adventist missionaries. Since her early childhood her parents instilled in her the love of Jesus and she always envisioned preaching and teaching as she gathered her dolls as an audience. After completing her Bachelors in music education, Elizabeth went on to work in the business world for many years in the accounting and managing departments. She earned a Master’s degree in Organizational Behavior at that time. She was invited by the Seventh-day Adventist church to full-time ministry, which she gladly accepted as a call from God. She became a pastor and earned her Master’s degree in Biblical studies and subsequent Ph.D. Eventually she became a senior pastor and an adjunct Biblical Studies Professor. She has enjoyed evangelism in many forms and innovative venues, and is now living her calling as speaker and director of the Jesus 101 television and radio ministry. Elizabeth’s main identity is her passion about the good news of Jesus Christ: “It’s like fire in my bones” she says, and she means it!
