Profiles in Goodwill: Terry Maples


Terry Maples, left, grew up in Union Grove, Alabama, near Huntsville.

Terry Maples is field coordinator for Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Virginia.

1. Where did you grow up?

Union Grove, Alabama (near Huntsville).

2. What is your favorite verse, book or story in the Bible? Why?

Luke 15:11-32.

When I read "The Return of the Prodigal Son" by Henri Nouwen, I understood this parable about God's unconditional love and grace in a different way. The call to "become like the father" inspires my discipleship.

3. What is your favorite movie? Why?

I can't say I have one favorite movie, but I enjoy action films and love it when the good guys win.

4. Who are three people you admire?

Jimmy Carter, Richard Rohr and Parker Palmer.

5. What is one little-known fact about yourself?

I enjoy putting my manual skills to good use (carpentry, finish work, plumbing, electrical and so on). I helped my dad build a house when I was in high school. My wife, Joan, and I built our first house after seminary. And now I'm helping my son renovate his house.
