about

Reverend Terry Harris, Senior Pastor of The Crossing Church, located in Chattanooga, TN, is a graduate of Lee University and has studied at The Pentecostal Theological Seminary. He has served in ministry for thirty-seven years and at The Crossing Church since 1994. The Crossing Church is a ministry of the Church of God, Cleveland, TN.


Terry and his wife, Kaye, have three children, four grandchildren and another due in September. Their son Jason, daughter-in-law, Brandi and their three children live in Douglas, GA., where they own multiple businesses. Daughter, Jodi, son-in-law, Darald Schaffer, both attorneys, and their daughter live in Chattanooga; and youngest son, Chad and his wife, Ashton, live in Chattanooga where Chad serves as Worship/Discipleship Pastor at The Crossing Church and Ashton teaches school in the Hamilton County Schools. Chad and Ashton are expecting their first child in September. Terry and Kaye’s family are all leaders in ministry for The Crossing Church locally and globally.


During their leadership at The Crossing, Terry and Kaye have placed an emphasis on evangelism, discipleship and World Missions. They have led several trips to Southeast Asia, Israel, Africa, Cuba, Belize and Russia where they are currently overseeing the creation of Dream Centers, using the existing Dream Center in Chattanooga as a model.


Another passion of Terry and Kaye’s ministry, and The Crossing Church, is the vision of the Three Crosses Project which is best stated in Jesus’ own words, “If I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all people toward me.” (John 12:32 NCV).


Providing opportunities for the people of Chattanooga, the surrounding communities and beyond, to “see” that Jesus is alive and loves them is the driving passion of their lives.


If our staff can minister to you in any way, please do not hesitate to call our church office. We look forward to serving you in the future!
