Pastor Terri Stagner-Collier has been a Pastor for 24 years, serving as Senior Pastor at Cross of Life since 2010. She holds degrees from Newberry College and the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary. She and her husband Chris live in Roswell with their two teen-aged children. Outside of her church work, she loves participating in family activities, boating and travel. A trained vocalist, Pastor Terri considers song one of her primary forms of prayer.
Pastor Terri states that her personal vision for ministry is “to provide a congregation with joyous leadership, vibrant worship, relevant and timely preaching, and strength of relationship which equips its members to live out their God-given calling in daily life. In partnership with the congregation, we will grow in faith, service and love – for those who are already here and for those who still hunger for the grace of God.”
As Senior Pastor, she is the primary preacher and works directly with Worship and Music, Evangelism, Stewardship, Personnel and Executive Teams. In the summer of 2017, she was on sabbatical studying “Clergy Effectiveness in Growing Congregations.” Ask her — she’d love to tell you all about it!
