Healing Youth Alliance Trainer/Counselor
Dieula Previlon founded ElevateHer with the support of her husband, Fresnel, and her best friends Anide and Betty. Mother of three sons, Dieula is a pastor, licensed professional counselor (LPC), life coach, motivational speaker, preacher, and entrepreneur. Her engaging, honest, and contagious sense of humor has allowed her to share the teachings of the word of God to empower and bring healing to the women of God’s kingdom for more than 15 years.
Born in Gonaives, Haiti as the fourth daughter to a strong and resilient woman who barely had a third-grade education, Dieula’s ministry today stems from her parents’ sacrificial act of love. They immigrated to the United States in the late 1970s, and brought their children to join them in the late 1980s. Always with a strong sense that the Lord was calling Dieula to minister beyond the Haitian community, she eventually enrolled at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey. With a bachelor’s degree in hand four years later, she taught middle school students while also volunteering in many church ministries—from youth to choir to prayer. Called to more, Dieula left the Haitian community once again to attend Dallas Theological Seminary in Dallas, Texas, where she earned a master’s degree in counseling. She then joined the staff of Irving Bible Church in Irving, Texas, as pastor and director of missions. She currently serves as the associate pastor of Redeemer Evangelical Covenant Church in Carrollton, Texas. With this as her home base, Dieula ministers to women in prisons as well as internationally—from Haiti, Africa, and India, to wherever else the Lord chooses to lead. Her life’s passion is to inspire and empower women to find life from chaos—and life abundant.
Dieula has been married to her youth group sweetheart, Fresnel, for 19 years. Together they’re the proud parents of 3 teenage sons, Reynel (18), Justin (16) and Devin (16). Together, they enjoy leading missions trips and sit on the beach and marvel in their awesome God.
