Director of Adult Christian Education (ACE) & Visual Arts

First Lady Sonya Rice



Sonya Rice serves as the Visual Arts Director and personal assistant to the pastor. She is a charter member and has enjoyed over 28 years of marriage to the founding pastor of NEBC, Robert Rice. God blessed their union with a lovely daughter named Rayanna and three beautiful grandchildren.

Sonya was born in Youngstown, Ohio where she graduated from Rayen High School. She continued her educational pursuits at Le Tourneau University and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration.

Sonya’s dedication to Christ Jesus can be clearly seen in the areas of ministry she had committed to over the years. Her ministry experience includes: teaching children’s Bible classes, she has written and produced Christian plays, conducted Evangelism training, sang in the choir and composed new songs. Sonya pioneered many ministries including: children’s choir, AWANA, Growth Groups, Women’s ministry, and the Agape Society- a high school gospel choir, praise dance team and Christian step team.

Sonya has two brothers and one sister, but spent most of her childhood years with her brother James. Living for Christ is Sonya’s passion, an example of this is revealed by what she considers the best part of her day…”the time I spend in devotion to God with the Pastor.” Her favorite scripture is Luke 1:45, which says “Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!" NIV

Reach Academy



Reach Academy

Reach Academy is more than a babysitter, more than Vacation Bible School, even more than a Summer Camp.


Reach Academy is a Fun, Dynamic, Atmosphere and Culture. It can be thought of as a summer vacation resort destination that cares about the spiritual growth and development of your young person.  

Women's Ministry

Felisa Conner



Felisa Conner became a part of the Northeast Bible Church Family in January 2010. She currently serves as Women’s Ministry Director, but has a history of serving the body of Christ since the age of 12. Her ministry roles have included Missions President, Youth Director, Sunday School Teacher, and most recently, Outreach and Missions Director.

A native of Shreveport, LA, her parents moved to Texas in 1971. Her spiritual roots were nurtured by her mother, Ella, as she taught her children to sing “Oh, How I Love Jesus” and how to pray as they all kneeled around the king sized bed.  A graduate of the University of Texas at Dallas, Felisa is employed by the City of Garland, where she leads community engagement and outreach initiatives with diverse partners. She is married to Kevin and has two beautiful young adult daughters, Morgan and Chandler.

Felisa is overjoyed to be involved in Kingdom Business at NEBC. Regardless of the role God calls her to, she wants to have the same mind as Christ Jesus in John 8:29 “…The Father has not left me alone, for I always do those things that please Him.” Her desire is to develop a heart that will always choose to please God above herself as she engages His people and points them to the Gospel.

He brings over 30 years of Christian Ministry experience to the team.  His passion to serve God’s people is expressed by the numerous roles of ministry he’s held ranging from Choir Member to Youth Pastor to Pastor of Worship in three churches over his lifetime.  His great delight is sharing his knowledge and experience with this great congregation.
