Elizabeth Viera Talbot was born in Argentina to the home of Adventist missionaries. Since her early childhood her parents instilled in her the love of Jesus and she always envisioned preaching and teaching as she gathered her dolls as an audience.
After completing her Bachelors in music education, Elizabeth went on to work in the business world for many years in the accounting and managing departments. She earned a Master’s degree in Organizational Behavior at that time. During this period of approx. 15 years, she volunteered as a part-time youth pastor. She was then invited by the Seventh-day Adventist church to become a full-time pastor which she gladly accepted as a call from God. She became a young adults/young families pastor and evangelist while earning her Master’s degree in Biblical studies. She has enjoyed evangelism in many forms; eventually she became a senior pastor for several years and an adjunct Biblical Studies Professor. Elizabeth is married to Patrick Talbot, a Marriage and Family Therapist. Elizabeth’s main identity is her passion about the good news of Jesus Christ: “It’s like fire in my bones” she says, and she means it.
