Terry King - Executive Director
Terry loves to train leaders! A major thrust throughout his life has been to equip and release leaders. His first opportunity was as a local church pastor in the 1970’s. When the church began to grow rapidly, his study of the New Testament model of church life led him to conclude that hiring professional staff was not the best answer for expanding services offered. A model of leadership development and training evolved that successfully produced paid and non-paid staff and launched dozens of individuals into vocational positions all over the globe.
In 1983 Terry launched into full time involvement in leadership training. That call has led to living on three continents and serving in over 38 nations. His involvement has included coaching and mentoring church leaders and business owners, teaching seminars, full time Bible college teaching for nine years, curriculum writing and serving in administrative positions.
Our Executive Director, Terry King, comes well prepared for this ministry:
- Married and in full time ministry since 1972
- Team Coordinator for Alliance International Ministries Coordinating Team
