Terry Clark's voice and keyboards were first heard in the early â€-70s in Texas in The Children of Faith, then in Europe in the mid â€-70s as a member of the live version of the band LIBERATION SUITE. His voice has been a regular part of Maranatha!Music's productions since the late 70's, including 7 years of Promise Keepers projects. Terry's music is designed to direct the listener to an intimate contact with his Creator and Savior, and his life has been a process of developing that communication. His spiritual roots run deep in generations of the Gospel message and music, but Terry broke out of that safe bubble and ventured into the world to sample it's smorgasbord of experiences. Twenty-something and burned out, he pushed away from the world's reality, humiliated to be a human being. In that condition he heard a familiar voice, it was Terry's childhood friend, Jesus. As Jesus revealed the love He has for human beings, it transformed Terry. He then understood the real reason for being a part of the human race. He was restored as his dependencies shifted to the One who had answered the question: Is there a reason for this life? A life of intimacy with his Savior and "Big Brother" began. His songs are simply windows through which one can see and participate in that private, personal relationship. Terry's first recordings WELCOME & MELODIES, were contemporary Christian albums on Good News Records/Word and contained several Christian Music radio "hits" in the late â€-70s and early â€-80s including Ugadano Thawanu Maija and Jesus Is At The Wheel. Terry saw the desperate need in the world for more intimate contact with God and realized that the Lord had challenged him to open those windows into his one-on-One personal relationship with Jesus. Those songs and Terry's personal ministry have led the way to that same intimacy for many and were recorded on albums entitled LIVING WORSHIP and LET'S WORSHIP. "More than ever people are feeling the need to deeply know God. If we ignore the inner cry for intimate communication with God, we become hard of hearing, unable to recognize His voice when He speaks to us." Albums that followed were: HEAVEN IS NOT THAT FAR AWAY, containing the Gospel and it's affect on human life; and IN THE SECRET PLACE, a family worship time with songs which convey the central message of intimacy with our Lord. Maranatha!Music produced LIVE WORSHIP with TERRY CLARK & MARANATHA!SINGERS. Terry's close friend and true musical genius, Roby Duke, began producing Terry's albums with U-GADA-NO. He has the ability to bring out the best in Terry in the studio setting. Next came THIS CHRISTMAS, an original musical that portrays the real common-people meaning of Christmas. LOVE HEALS expresses the transforming power of God's love. This album, as with the rest of Terry's work, is personal testimony of his encounters with this supernatural love that heals. ONLY BELIEVE, revels in a personal viewing of the majesty of our Creator and the life He has given those who "believe on the One He sent." Timeless musical textures from our world's rich cultures provide vivid settings for each vista. Track 1 is a remake of Terry's classic God You're So Good; track 11, the compelling standard Softly And Tenderly, fitting bookends for this gallery of God's extreme goodness in showing us His majesty and an act of love aimed at bringing us to that all-important choice - to "come home". Terry's latest release, THE PRIZE, is an in-depth survey of the Prize that Jesus paid for in full and that the Apostles all encouraged us to press toward winning. The joy of running to win that Prize far surpasses any pleasure given by creeds or dogmas. There is only one Jesus and there is only one life in Him, an eternal one, here and now. 'I bought a copy of your CD for a friend's sister who was going through horrible depression - she didn't know her own kids. Really sad situation. She had some horrible things happen in her life that she never dealt with (didn't even TELL anyone about it until 20-30 years later) and she had just gone down hill to this state. Not a Christian, but she and her husband got up every morning listening to the CD and she said that it gave her hope. So, you are touching people's lives in ways that you don't even know!! I hope you are being blessed beyond belief! I think of you often and hold you close to my heart!! Love always, Karen 'Wanted to let you know how much we continue to appreciate your music/ministry. This past 3 weeks have been extremely stressful at work...big issues with city government/structural challenges etc. Etc.. This morning I was lying down resting and Kathy had your CD the Prize going...I was just trying to figure out how I would pull all the weight of my world, when all of sudden I tuned into the words on a song you were singing. I realized that I was in way over my head :), and only the Lord could pull it all together. Here I was, trying to do it all...make the people happy and figure out the next move so I could succeed in my on going battle with city government. I heard this voice just say, Lorne your trying to do my job again :). Terry and Nancy, thanks for your music...it does minister to us out here. I then dozed off (hehe). Have a great day Lorne' 'Dear Terry, Thank you verry much for the great music! Yesterday in the evening I heard all CD's together with my wife. And we didn't hear it incidentally while we did something, but we sit down like in a concert and listened at your wonderful music. And it was like many years ago when I heared your songs the first time: At some songs our eyes was filled with tears and our both heart was opened new to the lord. It's really so much blessing! 'The prize', 'The face of your mercy' and others are really great songs wich comes frome a humbled heart full of love to our savior. And the spark dashes past (is this correct English?) and leads us into the presence of the Lord. So, my wife and I had a great Worship-Night with Terry Clark. Tank you, verry much! God bless you!
