Terry Rush...The Great Encourager

Terry Rush, where do I begin. We had the privilege of meeting Terry over 10 years ago at our first Tulsa Soul Winning Workshop. (That continues to be a highlight of my year. I always get great hugs!) We had the privilege of getting to know Terry when we scheduled him to speak in Mesquite a few years later.

Terry was very instrumental in changing the way I thought about God and my walk with Him. He speaks from the heart and with great passion. God has greatly equipped Terry for ministry and not just in preaching. While Terry is one of the most dynamic preachers I know (I think he's much better than some other well known guys he thinks are better than him and I've told him so!) he is also one of the most encouraging people I have ever met. He does not say anything that is not of encouragement to someone. If you read his blog you know what I mean. God has gifted him with great encouragement and continues to put Terry into people's lives who need encouraging and who need God. He can tell you countless stories of things that have happened to him in random ways and random places and how God has used him to encourage those who are thirsty for God.

I don't say that to brag on Terry although I would, I say that to say that Terry is someone who allows God to use him every second of every day to bless others. Terry is truly God's vessel and God continues to give him more because Terry so faithfully uses what God has already given him.

Terry will be speaking at Highland Oaks Church of Christ in Dallas and Plano this coming Sunday, January 11th. Plano's service is at 9:00 a.m. Dallas' worship service is at 10:00 a.m. If you are in the area, I encourage you to come and be blessed by the word of God through His faithful servant Terry Rush. You will leave uplifted, encouraged beyond belief, blessed and forever changed by God's word as He speaks through Terry. And you will have a true friend for life. If you have never heard Terry, you won't want to miss this opportunity; and if you have heard Terry, well, you will for sure want to be here! Come and be blessed!

See you soon Friend!!
