• Terry Bumpus

    Terry grew up in Inglewood just a few blocks from the Jackson Park Church building. He attended neighborhood schools and graduated from Isaac Litton HS. While he didn't attend Jackson Park until he was baptized in 1973, there were many Jackson Park members that were influential in his childhood and teen years. He met his wife, Linda, while they were both attending what is now the University of Memphis School of Law and they were married in 1980. They have 3 daughters: Elizabeth (husband, James Parnell and son, Andrew), Caroline and Meggie. Terry and his family are involved with the City of Children orphanage in Ensenada, Mexico, and the congregation that meets in Maneadero. He has served as an elder since 2005. "  

    Favorite Scripture - John 15:12 | "My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you." 

    I like it because it reminds me of the great sacrificial love Jesus had for each one of us and at the same time sets the bar very high for how we are to treat each other.
