About Dr. Curtis
Upon moving to Houston while still in his twenties, Terry Curtis began looking for a place to continue his graduate-level ministerial training. To his amazement, there were no Protestant seminaries in the Houston area.
He began praying for God to raise up a Christian graduate school, never thinking or even dreaming that someday he would be a part of that answered prayer. Dr. Curtis was first associated with HGST in an adjunct relationship beginning in the mid 1980s. Since July of 1996, he served as Dean of the Doctor of Ministry Degree Program from 1996 until his retirement in 2008. He holds two Bachelor of Science degrees from Olivet Nazarene University and two graduate degrees from The California Graduate School of Theology—the Master of Arts and Doctor of Ministry degrees.
In addition, Dr. Curtis pastors an experimental “cell” church. Recent converts have included Muslims and Buddhists, as well as other non-believing Americans. His hobby is photography, which he enjoys practicing internationally while traveling down a river in Africa, riding elephants in India, or hiking the rain forest of Papua New Guinea.
