Terry joined the Rockpoint staff in November 2016. She’s one of the first people you will encounter upon entering the doors at Rockpoint.
The Depp’s moved to MN from Knoxville, TN in February 2014. She has worked as an Elementary School Librarian, a Science Technology Reference Librarian at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and an Army officer. She earned a BS degree in Mass Communications from Middle TN State University and Masters in Library and Information Science from UT Knoxville.
They found Rockpoint driving down Hwy 36 one Sunday morning. The Rockpoint flag was waving at them. They attended the 11am service and have been regular attenders since July 2016. “It was what we were looking for and reminded us of our church in TN – contemporary music, thought provoking sermons, multi-generational congregation, Life Groups, local/global mission opportunities with the bonus of warm, welcoming people.”
She lives in Maplewood with her husband, Dennis, and three pups. They are adventurous empty nesters. They have three grown children, Aaron, Ashlee and Garrett plus two granddaughters. Terry loves traveling, camping, reading, genealogy, photography and family time. As a native Tennessean and alumni of the University of TN, Terry is an avid UT Volunteer football fan! Go Big Orange!!! One of her life goals is to visit each of the seven continents. She has only four more to go (South America, Africa, Australia and Antarctica)!
“We’ve faced various hard situations with our children as they’ve grown, but two in particular stand out. In 2003, my oldest son was deployed to Iraq with the US Army. Despite the dangerous situation he was in, I was at peace knowing he was covered in prayer. By God’s grace, he came home safe and whole. Our latest trial is the face of addiction we’ve confronted with our youngest son. It’s scary. It’s heart wrenching. It affects the whole family, but God is faithful. As we continue on this journey, my walk with Christ is stronger than ever and I truly believe in the power of prayer. Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
