Erin Tepley

Erin Tepley was born in Scarborough, Maine. Erin received a Bachelor of Arts in French at the University of New Hampshire, and a Masters in Teaching at Kaplan University. Her previous work titles include customer service, administrative assistant, placement coordinator, and staffing specialist. Erin also coached figure skating and represented the United States during her teenage years in Canada, Slovakia, Germany, and Poland as a member of the U.S. Figure Skating Team.


Erin and her husband, TJ, met while they were both in college and married in 2006. From 2012-2015, TJ was assigned to Ft. Polk, and the Tepley’s resided in Rosepine. Their request to return to Ft. Polk in 2019 was fulfilled. Upon returning,  they decided to live in Deridder in order to get involved within the community. 


Erin and TJ have three children and an English Bulldog named Libby. During TJ’s one-year duty station in Montgomery, Alabama, the Tepley family became church members and baptized their first two children at Whitfield Methodist Church. The warmth and love they received from Whitfield catapulted them into searching for another church that had the same traits in DeRidder. Upon placing their youngest son into Methodist Children’s Learning Center and attending one church service, the family felt welcomed and hopeful at FUMC-DeRidder. Erin is most excited to fill the role as Administrative Assistant. She says that “driving our family back into Louisiana felt like coming home! Being offered a position within our community of this well-established church reminds us of the greatness of God and his ever presence in our lives.”
