Terry Willis's Biography
The heart of Pastor Terry Willis, aka Sir Willis, is to help people to know God, to grow in God, and to flow in God. He came to know the Lord when he was five years old, living in Detroit Michigan. One day, he looked at a globe of the world and prayed, "God help me to communicate Jesus Christ, the Savior, to your world using music, movement, and media." God answered that prayer in an amazing way by affording Terry the opportunity to train and tour domestically with Omega Dance Theatre, a Christian production company, train and tour with Impact Productions, and perform in the live stage and multimedia production The Masterpiece: A Toymaker’s Dream. There, he served as the company manager, team pastor, and a cast member in the role of the King Kat, working with over 3,000 churches and performing live for more than a million people. He toured domestically in fifty states and internationally in over thirty-nine countries, and performed by invitation at the 1992 World Fair Expo in Seville, Spain and the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. By invitation from President Castro, Terry also performed in Havana, Santa Clara, and Matanzas, Cuba, and at the Internal Festivals of the Arts in Bangkok and Chang Mai, Thailand. He has shared about Jesus in West and South Africa, Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Norway, Mexico, Poland, Puerto Rico, Romania, Slovakia, Scotland, Singapore, and Sweden to name a few.
Terry was ordained by Pastor Skip on February 27, 2001, and served on the pastoral staff at Calvary Albuquerque from 1999 to 2005. After that, he served as senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Durango in Colorado for five years. He also served as the chaplain for the Durango Police Department and S.W.A.T. team for five years.
Sir Willis came back home to Calvary Albuquerque to again serve again on the pastoral staff in January, 2017. He lives each day to find God faithful, merciful, and truthful in all things. He believes that only out of our intimacy with Christ, should we do ministry for Christ and only out of our great communion with Christ, can we keep the Great Commission of Christ. His heart is summed up in his life Scripture: "For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified" (1 Corinthians 2:2).
Sir Terry Willis and Lady Ariane Willis were married by Pastor Skip on January 1, 2003, and they now have their quiver full with eight children: Sir Terrence Willis, Lady Kezia Willis, Lady Imari Willis, Sir Matthias Willis, Lady Laila Willis, Sir William Willis, Lady Coco Willis, and Lady Trésor Willis, who they are nurturing and raising so that they will look to God, listen to God, learn from God, love God, and lean on God with all of their hearts.
