The Staff

Final-7

Terrance Reeves-Chong  |  Head Intern Pastor

Pastor Terrance began in ministry in 2005 when he joined a ministry training school. After two years traveling the country ministering to youth with Pastor Steve Munds, Terrance became Bible School Director and Teacher, where he served for several years. During this time he dated and married his wife, Jamie. They began the Disciple Internship program at Living Word and shortly thereafter also took on the role of youth pastors at The Rock Sr. High Ministry.

Terrance and Jamie are passionate about teaching and training believers to be disciples of Jesus Christ through Kingdom living, pursuing God’s plan for their lives, and maintaining a relationship with Jesus Christ. They live in Maple Grove, Minnesota with their two daughters, Evie and Isabel. They enjoy working out, cooking, (or rather, Terrance enjoys eating what Jamie cooks), vacationing, spending time with family, going to farmers markets and the theater, and sports.
