On November 19, 1997, in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida a day that will always be remembered. It was the birth of Terry Montell Durham, and his Twin Brother, Todd Mantell Durham Jr. Their parents, Nicole and Todd, knew that this birth was a sign from God, He gave them two sons. What they did not know at the time was that Terry would become an inspiration to thousands with his ministry.
Terry Durham grew up in Lauderdale Lakes Florida. Living with his grandmother and father, he was not your typical 9 year old kid. He had a habit as a child of preaching to an imaginary congregation and always carrying his little “microphone radio” every where he would go. Him and his twin brother would have church every where they went, earning him the nickname "Preacher Man". Pastor Sharon Monroe (grand mother) instilled a strong work of leadership in her grandson at an early age. His grandmother was a traveling evangelist, who traveled around the state ministering the word of God. She begins to watch Terry at a very young age.
