Born in Gonaives, Haiti as the fourth daughter to a strong and resilient woman who barely had a third grade education, Dieula’s ministry today stems from her parents sacrificial act of love. They immigrated to the United States in the late 70s and she and her siblings later joined them in the late 80s. Dieula has always felt a strong sense that the Lord was calling her to minister beyond the local Haitian community. She left the Haitian community and went off to college at Rutgers University. Soon after college, she became a middle school teacher as she simultaneously volunteered in many church ministries; from youth, to choir and prayer. She once again left the Haitian community to attend Dallas Theological Seminary with a Masters in Counseling. She later joined staff at Irving Bible Church as the Mission’s Pastor and Director. She now enjoys ministering to women in Prison, in Haiti, Africa and wherever the Lord leads her. Her passion is to empower people to heal from trauma, find purpose and hope.
