He then served for twenty years as the assistant district superintendent of the Mid-Atlantic District Church of the Nazarene until his retirement in April 2021. Part of Terry’s ministry during this time has been to serve as interim pastor in eight different Churches of the Nazarene.

Both Terry and Darlene are graduates of Eastern Nazarene College, Quincy, MA. Terry earned a BA in Religion (1973) and MA in Religious Studies in 1996. Darlene earned an Associate Degree (1973) in Children and Youth Ministries.
