Dr. Anna Hosemann-Butler, Senior Pastor, Oak Lawn United Methodist Church wrote at 2016-09-23 13:53:40

Rev. Dr. Anna Hosemann-Butler, Senior Pastor Oak Lawn United Methodist Church Reference for Terry Heislen (10.00)

"I worked with Terry H for over four years when we both served on staff at First UMC Sachse. I was Senior Pastor and hired Terry. He is extremely talented, organized and faithful, and did wonderful work with our Children's Choir, as well as the Handbell Choir. Terry helped out in myriad ways in other areas which were not technically in his area of responsibility. And, after I left and the church went through some turmoil due to difficulties with my successor, it was Terry who held things together in the interim until a new senior pastor was named. In short, he is excellent teacher, excellent musician, and a good, good man."

Pastor, Community United Methodist Church, Copeville, TX (8.00)

"Terry was my choir director for several years. He taught me to sing with confidence, something no other prior director could do. He is also, by far, the best handbell teacher I have ever worked with, and I have played handbells with five different choirs. He is patient and encouraging. "
