About Miles & Terri
Miles’ parents were missionaries, so he had the privilege of growing up as a bi-cultural kid on the island of Grenada. This helped him see the value of missions, church planting and leadership training from an early age. Terri’s father was a Baptist preacher. Both Miles and Terri made decisions to follow Jesus Christ early in their lives.
In 1973, Miles graduated from LeTourneau with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, then worked as an engineer and manager at Honeywell Aerospace for the next 35 years. In 2001, he earned an MBA in International Management from Thunderbird Graduate School. Terri graduated from nursing school in 1980.
Miles and Terri started attending Northwest Community Church in 1978, where he has served as an elder and missions leader for over 30 years. While at NCC, they met Paul and Lisa Madson when he was a youth pastor there, before heading off to seminary.
Miles has helped lead missions teams from NCC to many countries, including India, Grenada, Ecuador, Peru, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea, Czech Republic and Mexico. He has also coordinated about a dozen Perspectives and Pathways classes to help mobilize and train Christians to fulfill the Great Commission.
Since retiring from Honeywell in 2007, Miles served on the pastoral staff of NCC for 8 years, and joined GTN in 2015 to spend more time training pastors and Christian leaders in majority world countries.
Miles and Terri have 3 married children (all walking with the Lord, praise His name) plus 7 grandchildren.
