Teresa Muller - "Beauty for Ashes"
Teresa Muller came from a Jewish home and got saved during the Jesus movement in 1972. Her upbringing was filled with music, as her mom was a concert pianist. Teresa began playing piano, then guitar during her teen years.
When she became a Christian, she joined Shiloh, a domestic missionary organization out of Eugene, OR. She began writing songs, and leading worship at bible studies and gatherings.
Later she traveled with her husband, Bruce, around the country, sharing their music.
In 1980, they moved to Southern California to go on staff with Maranatha Music. Teresa sang on several praise albums, as well as wrote songs that were published with MM. Her most popular songs on the albums were “Rock of My Salvation”, “To Be Pleasing You”, and “Draw Me In.”
Teresa recorded 3 CD's, one with Bruce. She has traveled domestically and abroad, leading worship as well as speaking at women's conferences, church events, and leading worship in her home church of Calvary Chapel.
In 2010, after pastoring in Monterey, CA for 13 years, they became missionaries in Europe, teaching at a bible college in Germany, and doing worship seminars in various churches. God directed them back to the States 5 years later, as their kids were having children, and they wanted to be involved.
Teresa has been married to Bruce since 1974, and have four married sons with 10 grandchildren. They currently make their home in Redding, CA and attend Bethel church.
