Inspirational Speaker & Recording Artist 

Hey there!

I’m Marlesa.

A little bit about me. 

I love Jesus, my family, and I love sharing the message of hope and joy in the midst of real life.  “Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” -Isaiah 40:30-31 (NIV)


Wife, mother, psalmist, motivational speaker, vocal coach, pageant coach and emcee, performance director and choreographer are a few words that describe me.

Marlesa has a deep love for ministry but especially for touching the hearts of women as she has traveled the U.S. ministering in Churches, Conferences and Women’s Events for more than 30 years.  Along with her inspiring testimony, she adds hilarious, real-life, day-to-day family stories as she warms the hearts of audiences everywhere.  She’s keeping it real!!

Marlesa holds a Bachelors Degree in Music Education from Valdosta State University. In 1986, she captured the title of Miss Georgia and went on to be a “Top 10″ Finalist in the Miss America Pageant singing Amazing Grace for the national television audience. Following her year of travel as Miss Georgia and ambassador for the State of Georgia, she sang with Disney’s “Voices of Liberty” a cappella singers for two years. She has performed for two U.S. Presidents, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan; was a soloist with the Atlanta Pops Orchestra; and has sung for the Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Falcons, and Atlanta Hawks professional sporting events.  She has also been a featured guest on CBN’s 700 Club.

Marlesa is the director/choreographer of the award winning IMPACT! Show Choir. She has choreographed productions such as: Fiddler on the Roof, Cinderella, Mary Poppins, Beauty & the Beast, Oklahoma & Bye Bye Birdie.

Her husband, Jeff Greiner serves as a Field Rep. and Assistant to the Chairman with CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network). Jeff and Marlesa reside in Dothan, Alabama with their two sons: Asher and Tyse.

She recently released her third recording, UNshakeABLE. Sharing the goodness of God, her musical gift and personal testimony is not only her passion but her calling.



Marlesa’s husband, Pastor Jeff Greiner, is a Rutgers University Scholar Athlete. He is currently employed by the Christian Broadcasting Network/700 Club and Pat Robertson. He loves ALL sports and has learned to appreciate the arts and music since marrying Marlesa over 25 years ago!

Their boys are Asher and Tyse. Asher is a senior at Lee University and Tyse is a sophomore at Southeastern University. They are blessed with a generational, godly heritage and the best of both worlds…both are very gifted athletically and musically!
