Words people use to describe Lisa are Passionate, Genuine, Prophetic, Real, Survivor, and Beautiful… Lisa is the glue that holds our church together.
Lisa grew up in a broken home but came to know Christ at a young age through the Missionettes program at her church. She graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a degree in Human Development in 1986. After moving to Tulsa, she met Kelly and they were married in 1992. Being deathly afraid of speaking or praying in public, God has developed Lisa into one of the most gifted speakers & writers in Oklahoma. She is a great encouragement & source of strength to the women of Faith Church.
Lisa has a successful real estate business, an online business called Surprise Gift Company, and she has just released a book called “Courageously Uncomfortable.” You can find out more information about Lisa at LisaJGoins.com. Kelly & Lisa reside in Broken Arrow.
