He completed his PhD at Asbury Theological Seminary.
As the Program Elder in the B.Ed. program, Terry’s role is to help us all become more familiar with the contributions Indigenous People have offered our world, learn about Indigenous ways of knowing, understand better the history of Indigenous People in Canada, come to appreciate the faith commitment of those Indigenous Peoples in the Christian community, and develop an alertness to the Indigenous students who may be in our classrooms.
