Maria Durso is who I want to be when I grow up, including her hair. Maria met Jesus in a dramatic way and she never turned back. She and her husband Michael pastored Christ Tabernacle in Queens, New York, an outgrowth of Brooklyn Tabernacle, for over thirty years, She continues to lead in various capacities there when not speaking all over the world about her story and the compelling news of the Gospel. She is a force, friends, and I cannot wait for you to listen in on our conversation.
Maria Durso is living proof that if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17). Having come from a childhood devastated by loss and abuse she grew up thinking she could mask her pain with drugs. Her lifestyle could have left her hopeless and alone—yet God kept and preserved Maria’s life.
Understanding firsthand the effects of abandonment, loneliness and rejection, she ministers to those whose hurt lies deep in the heart and works to minister to those who need hope. Armed with discernment, insight into the true character of God, honest about her own experience, and down to earth, Maria is an intercessor, teacher, and powerful speaker. Maria has published two books, From Your Head to Your Heart, and Ageless. God continues to open doors for her to minister in conferences, seminars, and retreats. Connect with her at MariaDurso.com and @MariaDurso129.
