Lisa Turley

Lisa started working at First Church in May of 2016.  Originally from Oklahoma City, she has attended college at OSU and Central State.  


Her favorite movie is Sound of Music.

Favorite songs are Put a Little Love in Your Heart and It's a Wonderful World

Her pet peeve is people chomping when they eat.


Lisa has been married to Stuart for 30 years this September.  She has a daughter, Michelle, 26, and a son, Blake, 24.


Her favorite restaurant is anyplace that serves Mexican food.


Lisa's personal motto is:  I chose to live by faith and not by sight.

Her favorite scripture is Jeremiah 29:11 - "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."


Her real life hero is Louie Zamperini, the subject of the book, Unbroken, which Lisa recommends highly if you haven't read it already.  He was truly an amazing man.


Growing up, Lisa wanted to be a homemaker with lots of kids and cows.


A random fact about Lisa is that she can fake cry very well (just ask Stuart)!


Here's what Lisa enjoys about being part of the First Church team:  My workplace is my church and we genuinely care for each other.
