Teresa Goree


Teresa serves as President of the North County Generals. She feels blessed to be part of this amazing company of saints who are passionate for God and advancing the Kingdom. Teresa worked side by side with Delinda and is honored to be a part of this ministry and committed to following the Holy Spirit as He moves the Generals forward into His plan and purpose in the earth. 

She is the lead intercessor of Holy Spirit Prayer, oversees the prayer ministry and prayer classes that teach and train others about Corporate Holy Spirit Prayer. She does much of the technology for the Generals, such as web design, Eventbrite, conference programs, and our Healing Rooms App. Teresa is also the Associate Director of the Atascadero Healing Rooms.

She believes the Lord called her to this region and to this ministry for such a time as this. The Lord also led her to write a book, "God is Well Pleased With You" and a workbook about prayer called, "Corporate Holy Spirit Prayer". Teresa is dedicated to the Lord and to see people enter into their destiny and all the fullness of God provided through Christ.


Teresa grew up in Atascadero, but spent many years in Missouri where she raised her 4 children, taught school, served in church and ministered at the International Association of Healing Rooms in Washington, MO.


Debra Gifford


Debra grew up in Sacramento and met her husband, Jim, while attending Vanguard University, a Christian College in Costa Mesa. During that time, she was a featured soloist in a Christian band that toured Europe and the U.S. This is when she first became aware of a prophetic gifting as she prayed over people, however there was no name for it back then.  Later at First Assembly, she was involved in Women’s Ministries, dramas, choir, solos, and led some trios and worship services.

​The next 6 years for Debra at The House of Glory were like boot camp in the prophetic, worship team and spontaneous song. She also served on th​e Board there and in Prophetic Presbytery. When that church closed, they went to Kingsway.  She was on Apostle Brad’s worship team and they headed the Prophetic Ministry. That church also closed and they began to get teased about having the ministry of “closing churches”. Currently they have been at the local Vineyard for 17 years (and it hasn’t closed) and worked concurrently at the Healing Rooms for 14 of those years. During that time, she facilitated a Listening Prayer group for 3 years because she is passionate about helping people hear His voice clearly every day, which brings a constant awareness of His presence. 

​Debra has been with The Generals for about 6 years and she is excited about the healing and restoration that takes place there.  She loves to see people walk out their giftings and feels it is having a huge impact on the County.

Debbie Buckheim


Debbie grew up in Ventura County, CA and moved to Atascadero with her husband Kurt in 1997. A church friend took her to a Generals’ meeting in 2017 and her life was forever changed. She had finally found an extended family of believers where she could grow in her love for Jesus, and discover His purpose for her life.


After attending Generals for over a year, she began hearing a wee, small voice saying, “Somebody should be recording these speakers,” referring to the guest speakers who give talks there every Friday morning. She decided to obey and pursue that Voice, bought a video camera, and began a passion she never expected to have.


Now Debbie serves as leader of our Technology Team where she continues to learn and grow in her ability as the Holy Spirit leads and teaches. Her commitment and dedication to the Lord and the Generals is a tremendous blessing to all. 

She’s so grateful for the Holy Spirit’s love, guidance, and direction in her life and wants to keep that close connection to God, wherever it takes her.

Maureen Fountain


Maureen grew up in Southern California and became part of a Jesus People group in 1972 that provided witnessing adventures across the western US, oftentimes via hitchhiking and with no visible means of support. It was truly living by faith and watching God daily provide. After marrying and having 3 kids, she and her husband set out as faith missionaries to discover the wonders of the Latin life, birthing 4 more kids, and experiencing God's hand as they reared and taught their children and shared a soul-winning message. 


Maureen continues to be a vibrant disciple. She loves the honor given the Holy Spirit at the Generals and longs to experience more of that and share it with others. Teaching a weekly Bile study with her husband, volunteering at a food pantry, praying at the Atascadero Healing Rooms and wherever the Lord leads, she wants to see God move and His love encountered as His Kingdom is established on earth.


Maureen helps lead the Holy Spirit Prayer Ministry and teach the Corporate Holy Spirit Prayer Classes. Her love for the presence of God and the revelation she shares is an inspiration to all. 

I press on toward the goal to win the supreme and heavenly prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward.
