Ordained in 1978, Terry served congregations in New Philadelphia, Ohio; Thurmont, Maryland: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; and York and Nazareth, Pennsylvania.
In his retirement, Terry seized the opportunity to return to his home congregation in Reading as a part-time pastor, leading worship, providing pastoral care, and assisting in the food ministries of the church to impoverished folks in the neighborhood and congregation in which he was raised. Now retired, Terry continues to volunteer in this vital ministry.
