TERRANCE ALSO ATTENDED PENN VALLEY COMMUNITY COLLEGE
IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD, BECAUSE HIS MOTHER SUFFERED DEBILITATING INJURIES FROM A CAR ACCIDENT TERRANCE WAS 2 YEARS OLD WHEN HIS GRANDMOTHER ZELMA LEE TERRY BANKS TOOK ON THE RESPONSIBILITY OF RAISING TERRANCE. TERRANCE WAS TAKEN TO CHURCH AND SUNDAY SCHOOL AT THE AGE OF 2 YEARS OLD. WHEN TERRANCE WAS 9 YEARS OLD, HE JOINED AND WAS BAPTIZED AT PALESTINE MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST UNDER THE FOUNDER AND LEADERSHIP OF THE LATE PASTOR EARL ABEL. HE WAS ACTIVE IN THE ANGEL CHOIR, THE GOSPELAIRES YOUTH CHOIRS, SUNDAY SCHOOL, ROYAL AMBASSADORS, DRAMA THEACTRICAL GUILD UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE LATE SAUNDRA JARRETT BEASLEY, ALONG WITH HIS GRANDMOTHER. TERRANCE ENJOYED SINGING, READING, BASKETBALL, AND ATTENDING THE CHURCH CAMP PALESTINE.
DUE TO A WORKING SECOND PARENTING GRANDMOTHER PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT AND PLAYING AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN A CHILD’S LIFE AND ASSUMING THE PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITY FOR A CHILD’S EDUCATION, DEVELOPMENT AND WELL-BEING TERRANCE WAS ENROLLED IN THE PALESTINE CHURCH DAY CARE THERE HE WAS TAUGHT BIBICAL TEACHINGS FROM THE BIBLE.

ALTHOUGH GOD WAS HIS REFUGE AND STRENGTH, HE WAS WITH HIM, COVERED HIM, AND PROTECTED HIM. NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD. I AM TRULY GRATEFUL THAT TERRANCE HAD CHRIST IN HIS LIFE. THE BIBLE SAYS TRAIN UP A CHILD IN THE WAY THEY SHOULD GO AND WHEN THEY ARE OLD, THEY WON’T DEPART. ALTHOUGH HE DIED ALONE WITHOUT FAMILY, I KNOW MY GOD WAS BY HIS SIDE. WITH THE PROCESS IT TAKES TO DELIVER A LOVED ONE HOME FROM OUT OF STATE WE CAN REJOICE AT LAST FOR HE IS HOME AT LAST! THANK GOD ALMIGHTY HE IS FREE AT LAST!! WITH YOUR MAGIC JOHNSON SMILE.
