In 1989, Terry was called into the Music Ministry in Tuscaloosa, AL. He immediately began to serve the Lord by starting a contemporary Christian band called “Open Hearts”. They toured for 2 years to churches, youth camps, conferences and other special events. After studying music arranging at the University of Alabama, Terry began arranging and performing for various churches. He arranged and performed in the Garywood Assembly of God Easter Drama for 5 years. From 2001-2005, Terry Webster was a member of The Church at Brook Hills where he arranged for their horn line.
Terry also serves as a lead trumpet player, the band director and arranger for the Power and Glory Big Band in Birmingham, Alabama. Terry, Tammy (wife), Jake, Jared and Jessica are all now members at Shades Mountain Baptist Church. Terry is also currently serving as Interim Orchestra Director. In addition to directing he is also doing some arranging as needed for the orchestra.
Terry has performed with many artists over the years. The list includes such trumpet artists as Doc Severensin, Allen Vizzutti and Phil Driscoll. There have been many others, but these three have influenced Terry’s style the most.In October 2004, Terry released his first CD project called Worship. This project features several songs that have been an inspiration to Terry over the last 24 years of his career as a trumpet player. The project was written and designed in a manner so that the music itself could be used in as many different forms as possible. For example, most of the songs can be used to sing to or played to by most voices or any instrument. The songs also have a multimedia element to them. During the CD premiere, Terry used a DVD click track to synchronize full motion video with lyrics while the band played the music. Terry is an accomplished multimedia developer as well. These talents combined have birthed a new ministry for Terry to use to capture the fascination and passion for why we all seek Jesus.
