Terry currently serves as Coordinator of the Global CHE Network, Vice President of the Alliance for Transformational Ministry, and Senior Consultant to LifeWind/Medical Ambassadors International. He provides leadership to a growing movement, equipping and mobilizing Christians to work together for effective Community Health Evangelism (CHE) ministries in rural poor communities and urban slums around the world.
CHE is a breakthrough mission strategy that seamlessly integrates evangelism and discipleship with disease prevention and community-based development. The work is wholistic, seeking to meet the whole need of individuals and communities – spiritually, physically, socially, and economically. Through CHE ministries people become followers of Jesus, churches are planted, and whole communities are lifted out of cycles of poverty and disease.
After a decade of service in the Philippines, Terry pioneered for LifeWind/Medical Ambassadors in 9 countries in Southeast Asia, working together with partners to establish CHE ministries in more than 400 communities. Later as International Coordinator he guided the expansion of a growing movement that now involves more than 500 organizations serving more than 4000 communities in 105 countries.
Terry is a capable teacher, author, and enthusiastic speaker on the subjects of Biblical wholism and transformational development. He holds a Bachelors degree in Bible, and a Master of Divinity from Western Seminary in Portland Oregon. Terry is married to Jeannie who works as a nurse at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, and is a clinical instructor. They have three adult children.

Medical Missions 101 Session- Asset Based Approach to Community Health: Helping people learn to help themselves.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) Community Health Programs, have been an effective way to help meet the growing shortage of healthcare workers in the developing world. However, by their very nature these programs are vulnerable unless they are driven, owned by and firmly embedded in communities themselves (Lehmann & Sanders , 2007). As such, understanding key strategies for mobilizing community engagement and community ownership is essential for improving health in poor communities. This session reviews a breakthrough community health strategy that seamlessly integrates disease prevention and community development. In this workshop, Terry will describe how to implement an integrated community health program that transforms the health and lives in resource poor communities from the inside out.
Objectives: 1. Describe the purpose for integrated ministries such as Community Health Empowerment.
2. Identify transformational indicators used to measure the success of an integrated Community Health programs.
3. List the steps in implementing a Community Health Empowerment program.
