About the Author

At the age of 16 Terry Dorsett joined one of America’s largest congregations, Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Virginia. While in college he joined the pastoral staff at that church and learned important concepts about how to reach a community for Christ. Though Terry enjoyed his time in that mega-church setting, he soon realized that he wanted to impact individual lives in a deeper way than was possible in a mega-church.

Terry and his wife Kay spent a brief period serving in youth ministry in South Carolina before moving to Vermont as church planting missionaries with the North American Mission Board (SBC) in 1993. Upon first arriving in Vermont they served in a small village. In 2001 Terry became the Director of Missions for the Green Mountain Baptist Association. He helps start new churches and plans strategic evangelism projects. Learn more about this ministry at www.vermontbaptist.org. You can also enjoy his blog at www.terrydorsett.com where he writes about how to reach the next generation for Christ.

Terry and Kay partnered with two other families in 2004 to start Faith Community Church. The church has grown to be the second largest Southern Baptist church in the state of Vermont and is widely known for reaching unchurched young adults. The church used a bivocational multi-leader approach to ministry.
