"I find great satisfaction from anticipating and meeting the information needs of Evangelical's various constituencies, preserving and organizing the records of Evangelical history, preparing students for effective and efficient research, and most of all leading people through music to a meaningful worship of God."
Terry worked on the library staff of Elizabethtown College before coming to Evangelical in 1979. He teaches a course in theological research methods that is required of all incoming students and has taught courses in church music, church history, and worship at the Seminary. During his time at Evangelical he has served as Chapel Organist and director of the Seminary Chorale. He is also Archivist of the Evangelical Congregational Church and serves on the Board of the denominational Historical Society. He is a past president of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Theological Library Association and member of the editorial board of the Journal of Religious & Theological Information.
Terry served as editor and principal author of the recently published history of the Evangelical Congregational Church, Evangelical From the Beginning (Emeth Press). He has written articles for the Journal of Library History, Methodist History, Journal of Documentation, and The Annals of Eastern Pennsylvania. He also abstracts several journals for Religious and Theological Abstracts.
