Meet The Pastors
Twyla Betha is a devoted wife, mother, teacher, pastor and extraordinary life coach whose positive message of love helps countless men and women succeed on their journey to self-discovery.
Born and raised in a small town on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Twyla graduated from MSU with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. Soon after, she moved to California and completed her Masters in Environmental Engineering at UCLA. Despite her corporate success and model looks, Twyla struggled with insecurities and self-doubt. Greater than her personal fears, she had an innate desire to know her purpose in life. It was during this time that she began to attend S.A.N.E. Church International (now El Elyon International Church) where Pastor Mason Betha taught the message of Jesus Christ with such clarity and understanding. It was through his teaching that she was able to overcome her fears and receive her God-given purpose of being an ambassador of change - one who would transform lives through pouring the love of God in the hearts of people all over the world.
Her thirst for the Truth caused her to grow exponentially. She was committed to fulfilling her purpose and soon left her corporate career to become a teacher and serve in ministry. Twyla soon became Mrs. Mason Betha and alongside her husband, began to teach in her own unique way. Although Mason affectionately boasts of her teaching style being something “she got from him,” her transparency and colorful expression of her life experiences help people apply God's principles in a practical way that brings about results. Whether its a sermon, lecture, workshop or seminar, her presence creates an atmosphere of change and people are transformed.
While Twyla has encouraged women and men alike to identify their purpose and full potential, she also has a connection with the youth. In 2006, she founded the Royal Girls Club, an organization for young ladies of all nationalities between the ages of 13 and 18. The sisterhood serves as a vehicle for Twyla to mentor young women across the nation in the areas that affect them most - self love, purity, and purpose. The Royal Girls Club will launch a tour in 2009 in major cities across America to “reclaim our daughters” and teach them how to “live life royally” through understanding who God created them to be and learning how to reach their full potential in their developmental years.
In 2007, Twyla expanded her territory by using her astute business acumen to develop Betha Realty Group, which provides 5-star service to homebuyers, sellers, and investors across the nation. “After making some bad real estate decisions, I developed a passion to educate people and create a company that would be integral and make the home-buying process a smooth transition,” says Twyla. Her desire to serve others has led her straight to the top.
Currently, Twyla appears on the “Born To Succeed” television broadcast of El Elyon International Church. She is known to be the driving force with her husband Mason and dedicates her time to serving the people. Her enthusiasm is contagious and there is no residue of that quiet Mississippi girl who used to be timid and insecure. She is now a public figure to be admired, with a mission to transform lives and build people to be all that God called them to be. Who would have ever thought? God did, and this is just the beginning. Get ready world!
