My story

I was born in a small town in Iowa. If you are a baseball fan, it is about thirty miles south of the “Field of Dreams”. I attended the University of Iowa after high school, but left college to get married in the middle of my Junior year. I was married for five years and we had two daughters, but sadly, we divorced. I had been raised Catholic, but I never had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Three years later, God broke me and brought me to my knees where I came to know I was a sinner in need of a savior. I have held various marketing positions in the corporate world over the years and completed my degree in Marketing from Concordia College, St. Paul, MN. I moved to Tulsa, OK in 2000 to join my brother, co-owning a marketing business. I met my wife Monica in 2003 and we were married that same year. I was called into full time ministry as a Church Business Administrator/Executive Pastor in 2007 and was ordained shortly after that. We moved from Tulsa to Cypress, TX in January of 2020 to join the staff at CyLife Church. I’ve been in ministry for over 14 plus years now and my passion is discipleship! Terry has completed the Foundations of Biblical Counseling program offered by the Christian Counseling Education Foundation (www.ccef.org). This comprehensive course of study included courses in a biblical view of personal change and developing effective helping relationships and caring ministries within the local church. I take Jesus’ words in Matthew 28:18-20 seriously and have been trying to live out the message to make disciples. It’s become who I am, not what I do, and I’m passionate about it.
