Terry was raised in Attica, NY, and even though she didn’t grow up in a Christian home, the Lord had a great plan in mind for her future.
Terry’s mom spent much of her life searching for spiritual truth. When Terry was 12, her mom found a church and rededicated her life to Christ. Around that time, she decided her daughter should attend a youth convention called “Acquire the Fire.” Reluctantly, Terry went, but it was there she met the Lord, joined a youth group, and met her now husband, Steve.
Terry has loved musical theater ever since adolescence. In middle school, one of her friends introduced her to Phantom of the Opera. Terry was hooked. She and her sister would drive around singing the Copacabana soundtrack without a care in the world!
Later in her college years, Terry and Steve had a mutual friend tell them about Sight & Sound. The couple didn’t do much with the information except tuck it away. Two years later, and closing in on their wedding date, the pastor of their local church insisted they take time out to pray about their future together. The Lord brought Sight & Sound back to mind. Within a span of a few months, they both had job offers. The Lord was making their way.
After 14 years of employment at Sight & Sound working in production and stage management, the couple felt the Lord calling them back to their roots and family in Western New York. The pastor from Terry’s mother’s church suggested she look at Family Life’s website to see if they had any openings – and here she is!
Terry works at Family Life as stage manager for the Performing Arts department and helps the radio ministry as an Underwriting Coordinator. She is “very excited for the opportunity to use her gifts and talents to work with these amazing two teams.”
