Terese Block
Business Administrator

I am a grey-haired old curmudgeon who holds onto money like Ebeneezer Scrooge.  No, no.   I am a married, empty-nested woman who serves here as the Business Administrator.  I am responsible for overseeing the financial tasks related to First Church’s ministry.  I oversee all money in (offering, pledges…) and out (payroll, team expenses) and make sure the transactions are fully documented and have proper protections.  I earned my Business degree at Carroll University (Administration/Accounting) and a Master’s degree in Psychology (Christian Counseling) at the University of Maryland.  But my best education comes through God’s Word and the movement of the Holy Spirit.  Now that is LIFE!

 My husband and I are seriously involved in mission to the poor and watching how God goes before us.  We support a family in Milwaukee and two in Kenya.  To escape reality I read inspiring and/or happy novels, visit our son and daughter-in-law in Madison, and watch Bluebloods.  Oh, I also feed dragons from Berk on my phone three times a day.
