A Salvation Army officer for 30 years, Terry is responsible for the leadership of the higher education stream of Eva Burrows College. He has served in various appointments, most recently eight years in an inner city Corps (parish) together with his wife Lyn. Prior to this he served 13 years at Booth College Sydney.

His Ph.D thesis focussed on Wisdom material and Christology in the biblical period, while his more recent Ed.D thesis explored the identity formation of Salvation Army officers from a post structural perspective.

Terry is interested in the intersection between faith as a follower of Jesus, culture, faith practices, and theological reflection.
