Terri Byrd is coordinator of Alabama Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.
1. Where did you grow up?
I was born in Nashville, Tennessee, but I lived in nine different places, all in the southeast U.S., by the time I was married at the age of 21.
2. What is your favorite verse, book or story in the Bible? Why?
Acts 10 (especially verses 19-21).
I’m fascinated by the whispering of the Holy Spirit into Peter’s ear to expect something new; and even though Peter was puzzled, he was open to the possibilities!
3. What is your favorite movie? Why?
I’m a romantic comedy lover and when Julia Roberts delivers the line, “Remember, I’m also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her,” that’s perfect.
4. Who are three people you admire?
Paul Byrd (my husband), President Jimmy Carter and Sarah Shelton (pastor of the Baptist Church of the Covenant in Birmingham, Alabama).
5. What is one little-known fact about yourself?
Before answering God’s call to ministry, I was an event coordinator for a concert venue and met lots of cool rock musicians including the members of Van Halen and Rod Stewart.
