Pastor Terry Strom

God has blessed me with a great partner, Sandy for 40 years.  I am a second-career pastor.  Prior to the ministry, I worked in the accounting field while my wife taught kindergarten at a public school.  In 1990, we moved our family to St. Louis to attend seminary.  In 1992, we moved to Guatemala City for our vicarage and served Cristo Rey (Christ the King) Lutheran Church.  My first call was to the bilingual congregation El Buen Pastor (Good Shepherd) Lutheran Church in McAllen, Texas. I have also served at Trinity Lutheran in Cissna Park, Illinois, (10 years); Trinity Lutheran in Urbana, Illinois, (9 years); and Trinity Lutheran in Bloomington, Illinois, (4 years). I have been serving at Faith since June 2019.


We have been blessed with three children and seven awesome grandchildren.


I have led various mission trips in the United States, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras and Kenya.  My joy in the ministry is serving and encouraging people to experience God’s love, and to share that joy with others.
