A North Carolina native, Elisa Keefe is among the 2-4% of Christians who are saved after the age of 30 (42, to be exact). She began her role as Director of the US Spanish Ministry when the former director retired at the end of 2017. The US Spanish Ministry focuses on ministering to Hispanics in the US, distributes programs, and provides support to our partner offices throughout the Spanish-speaking world.
Although she has never lived in a Spanish-speaking country, Elisa has developed strong Spanish skills through a God-given gift of language, years of studying and teaching Spanish, and interacting with Spanish speakers here in the US. She is amazed by how God was preparing her to use her language skills for His glory so many years before she even knew Him.
Elisa's husband, Sean, also works with TWR, on the Stewardship Team. In their free time, they both enjoy doing public evangelism, which keeps them passionate about the saving power of the Gospel and brings into their lives a wide variety of people whose paths they might otherwise never cross.
Elisa is excited about building a ministry team of individuals, families, and churches to partner with her through prayer and financial support.
