Michael Tercero

Youth Team/Xodus Director/Man of War Discipleship Team/Fort Concho Backyard Bible Club Team Leader

Michael Tercero was born and raised in San Angelo, Texas. His father was in the Army so his family was stationed in Washington, Germany and Massachusetts before finding their way back to San Angelo just before Michael started 2nd grade at Belaire Elementary. The Lord had begun working in his heart before he moved and started attending Fort Concho Elementary. It was in the lunch line during 4th grade that he heard a classmate talk about House of Faith. His curiosity would then lead him to Kevin Reynolds and Rachel Beaver at the Backyard Bible Club. He felt accepted with them and he has not been able to leave since. He would grow up through House of Faith, riding his bike in junior high which led him to a church and then graduating from Central in 2005. He then interned for two summers and started working for House of Faith on December 1, 2006. Over the years of working there he met a girl named Mindi Berry and decided he wanted to change her last name to Tercero. They married in January of 2014 at the same church his bike led him to. He leads Xodus, House of Faith's middle school program, and is part of the youth team. He really loves discipling students and encouraging the young men to walk in what it takes to be a man of God. He also loves to fish, the Dallas Cowboys and the Texas Rangers probably in that order.
