TERRY GEARY

Preschool Director

Terry has been a member of Bethel Baptist Church since 1978. Married for nearly 30 years, she and her husband have two daughters. Raised a military brat, she understands what the lives of military families entail and the sacrifices they make to defend our great country. Terry also has a passion for children and shares that TOTS started in 1977 as a mom’s day out program on Tuesdays and Thursdays. TOTS now offer a 2 day a week program or a 4 day a week program for families and she feels so deeply blessed to have had the privilege to start as a teacher in 1991 and then later became the director of this awesome preschool. Terry shares the belief that we are empowered with the privilege and command to plant Christ’s love as seeds in the precious lives of our TOTS children and then water them with God’s love through our wonderful staff to help them grow, “God’s Growing Garden.” God gave us as parents and teachers in Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Terry states that Christ is her foundation, her rock and her redeemer.
