Bella Vista Community Church\


Dr. Anna Teel

I was born in Memphis, Tennessee, near my home of Mount Pleasant, Mississippi. I am the eldest of four siblings and grew up in Marshall County, Mississippi, where seven generations of my family have lived. I graduated from Marshall Academy in 1996.


I earned the Bachelor of Arts degree in Bible at Blue Mountain College in Blue Mountain, MS, in 2000. I earned the Master of Divinity degree from Beeson Divinity School at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, in 2003, and the Doctor of Ministry degree in 2010. 


I was called to ministry at the age of fifteen and shared my calling with my home church, First Baptist Church of Holly Springs, MS. I was ordained to ministry in July of 2006 at Bella Vista Community Church. I have served in various ministry settings, as youth director for 7th-12th grade students, chaplain resident at a university hospital, and minister to 7th and 8th grade students, before joining the staff of Bella Vista Community Church as a pastor in February of 2006. I enjoy walking outdoors, going to the movies, and traveling.


In John 13:34-35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” I believe that once we have experienced God’s love and forgiveness, we will share God’s love with other people. Understanding how God loves us and creating opportunities to share God’s love with people is important to me as a pastor. When we are sensitive to God’s leading in our lives, we will see that loving God and loving people can be a lifestyle. This is how others come to know Christ and become more like Christ.
