In his own words, “I surrendered my life to Christ on May 8, 1968. Today after following his call I proclaim Jesus as Lord of my life because of that surrender. I have always been amazed to see Christ change and mold men and women who truly accept his gift of salvation. I minister in music with a heart of thanksgiving for all He has done.” Terry and Kaye are parents to daughter & son-in-law Candace and Joel Brown, and have one granddaughter, Olivia Kaye Brown.

Letsa Parker
Administrative Secretary
Letsa was born into a happy military family. Three years later, her younger brother was born.  Her father proudly served his country in the United States Air Force for 20 years. Her mom was a stay-at-home mom until she was in Elementary School when she began to work outside the home. They traveled a lot then, sometimes moving every year. Her parents always tried to find a church home in whatever city they were living at the time. When she was in 6th grade her father was stationed at Amarillo Air Force Base and she was saved at a church there.   Her family continued to travel and ended up in Middle Georgia when her father retired in 1972.  She met her husband, Terry,  in Warner Robins, and he was also in the Air Force. They both had a son from a previous marriages. Her husband was in Recruiting and was soon stationed at the MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station) in downtown Atlanta. They moved to Gainesville in 1990 and Terry retired 2 years later.  Letsa began working at Northlake in February of 1993.  She is still here after 21 years and still enjoys her ministry to the family of Northlake!
