Jerome N. Terry is the eldest of five children. He was born in New Orleans, LA and developed and early appreciation for Church, it’s music and the prayers that were prayed. Jerome N. Terry at 8 years old prayed asking this invisible God to reveal himself, and God did in a manner which ignited a love for God in this young child who now knew God was real.
Jerome N. Terry has a memory of praying as far back as he can remember. He was always taught to pray (Say Grace) before eating a meal. As a child it was a simple childlike prayer using the shortest verse in the Bible (Jesus wept, John 11:35). Before bed, each night was the prayer: Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take. As elementary as those prayers were, they laid the foundation for prayer in Pastor Jerome N. Terry’s life. The Bible teaches to pray continually and that is what Pastor Terry does. He prays throughout the day, simply “Conversing With God”.
