Rev. Terri Steed Pierce is the lead pastor of Joy Metropolitan Community Church—a church created FOR and BY the LGBTQ+ community. JOY has been a beacon of light in the City Beautiful for nearly 40 years. Rev. Terri has served in the capacity as Lead Pastor for almost six years. She’s also served churches in Raleigh, NC: Norfolk VA: Charleston, SC; Houston TX; Omaha NE.
Rev. Terri was born and raised in Charlotte, NC and received her Bachelor of Arts in Religion from Mars Hill University and her Masters of Divinity with Languages from Southeaster Baptist Theological Seminary.
She is a lover of Jesus, a self-professed church nerd, and the wife of Kim Pierce and passionate about justice and equality. The night of June 12, 2016 changed her life forever as it did for most of us here in Orlando, Florida. The Pulse tragedy brought out a newfound passion to ensure that even though hate often tries, love wins. Love always wins.
