Terry was born and raised in Mount Vernon and was brought to Emmanuel’s Sunday School as a young child by family friends. She met her husband, Gary in elementary school but the romance blossomed during high school days at Emmanuel’s youth group. They’ve been married over fifty years and have three married children and six grandchildren.

Terry graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a B.A. in history (with secondary teaching credentials). In 2005, she earned an M.A. in Organizational Management from the University of Phoenix. She loves to spend her free time reading all types of books.

It is the privilege of children’s ministry is to provide programs that lead boys and girls to Christ and to come alongside parents in supporting those decisions. On the wall leading into Jubilee Junction, the children’s wing, is the reference Psalm 78:6 “. . . so the next generation will know.”
