I grew up in Warsaw, graduated from Wawasee High School, and then went on to receive a degree in business administration and economics from Taylor University and later a Masters of Divinity from Grace Seminary. After pastoring for four years, I then obtained a law degree from Valparaiso University. I practiced law for over 20 years in Warsaw before founding All Things New. I’m eager to see how the Lord will use me in the future to serve individuals touched by All Things New.

Terry has a BS in Education and MS in Behavioral Science. While seeking to understand why her adopted son was struggling behaviorally, emotionally and socially, she found health and healing from God. Her belief and personal experience is that we achieve growth from constructing the truth about who God is and who we are as well as deconstructing the lies we’ve believed about ourselves that cause shame, brokenness and pain. She joins ATN as a volunteer and Case Manager.
Board of Directors
I am a Manager at PVA Unlimited, a family-owned business in Warsaw, Indiana. In addition to my work there, I have a long history of serving overseas with Avant Ministries. I really enjoy traveling and working for the Lord in various areas of the world using my gifts in construction, management, and team leadership. My wife Sarah and I were recently married in Spain, and we look forward to doing ministry together. We are both very involved at Pleasant view Bible Church, where we attend weekly. I am excited to serve with All Things New because I have a heart for the hurting, and feel that this is a great way to use my gifts to meet a local need.
I am an engineer and inventor in the orthopedic industry. In 2004, I helped start Deo Valente Orthopaedics LLC. I graduated from the University of Illinois with a B.S. in Engineering. My wife of 24 years, Diane, and I have four daughters. When I first heard about the start of All Things New, I realized that—except by the grace of God—one of my children could have a need for the services that are provided. That truth motivated me to join the board and invest in this ministry.
Over the last 50 years, my wife Barb and I have raised corn and soybeans in Noble Co., as well as two sons who are now grown. In addition to farming I have been a self-employed electrician, truck driver, and carpenter. I attended Purdue University and then served in the Army National Guard. I currently serve on four non-profit boards; one being a government elected position. I felt honored when asked to join the board of All Things New. It breaks my heart to see young people struggle with substance abuse and addictions to things easily available in today’s culture. How difficult it is to break out of these vices without Christ! So I was glad when God opened the door for us to help in this vital work. My motivation for serving with All Things New is 2 Cor. 5:17, “Therefore if anyone be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
I am an attorney and founding partner at Turner and Valentine LLP. My wife, Jessica, and I live in Winona Lake, where I grew up and attended Lakeland Christian Academy. I went to Taylor University Ft. Wayne for my B.S. in criminal justice and Regent University for my J.D. I am an involved member at Christ Covenant Church, and a board member of several community programs. Those include Heartline Pregnancy Center, ACRES Land Trust, United Way of Kosciusko County, Warsaw Breakfast Optimist Club, Habitat for Humanity, and New Beginnings Preschool. Through my practice in criminal defense, I have experience with individuals dealing with drug addictions. Seeing the damage these addictions create for individuals, their families, and our community is heartbreaking. All Things New is bringing a much needed tool to the fight against drug addiction—a faith-based drug rehabilitation program.
