Terry was born in Milwaukee and raised in the city of Saint Francis. At the age of 21, Terry married Joy. Within six years they had three sons, a home, a business and we’re living the American dream. In August of 1983, Terry hired a man who led him to the Lord. Terry started out attending an Assembly of God Church in Bay View, Wisconsin by himself, but after a few months Joy got saved and joined him in serving the Lord.
Terry quickly became an eager servant of the Lord and involved himself in many of the ministries at the church. Though he was busy with church duties, he didn’t realize that he had slowly become mediocre in his relationship with the Lord. That mediocrity was revealed to him in the spring of 1997 when he experienced a powerful revival. Through his personal revival, he sensed the call of God in his life for the ministry. Though he didn’t know the specifics of that call, he began to prepare for whatever God had for him to do.
In 1998 Terry left his church to join a small church in South Milwaukee, WI. It was there that he began being mentored for the ministry. In 1999 he received some credentials with the Church of God (Cleveland, Tn).
In 2002, Terry and Joy left that small church of God and joined an independent church that a friend of their’s had started six years earlier, located in West Allis, WI. In late summer of 2001, the pastor announced he was leaving the church and ministry; and on January 27, 2002 the elders of the church laid hands on Terry and ordained him as the new pastor of the church. On December 31st that same year, a building was purchased for their new church home.
On December 30, 2016, the Church in Wisconsin relocated to the city of Muskego, WI, where they currently reside.
Terry has a vision to see true unity and power come once again to Christ’s church. He believes God is raising up a remnant right now who will be a demonstration of Spirit and power.
Terry and Joy have been married for 44 years, have three sons and eleven grandchildren. They reside in the Village of Waukesha, WI.
