Meet the Revival Speaker, Rev. Dr. Terry Teykl

   Since 1980, Dr. Terry Teykl has been actively teaching and preaching on one topic – mobilizing the
local church to pray and win the lost. He began Aldersgate United Methodist Church in College Station, Texas with only eight people who were committed to prayer and it grew to a membership of over 1,000 in just 5 years. He firmly believes in prayer-evangelism as a lost practice, yet working principle for church growth. His first book, Pray and Grow, speaks about this theme. He is currently a prayer pastor for the Faithbridge United Methodist Church in Spring, Texas, He also serves as Chaplain for KSJB, a Christian radio station serving the Houston and the Gulf Coast. His presentations are mixed with humor and real life stories of people finding a better communication with the Father. He thrives on offering creative ways to make God real to a hurting world.

   In the span of his ministry, Dr. Teykl has written 15 books on prayer including Pray the Price, Acts:29, Making Room to Pray, How to Pray After You’ve Kicked the Dog, and Outside the Camp. The central purpose of these writings is to teach people to pray with power and confidence so that they might win this generation to Christ. His latest book Praying The Lord's Prayer at Noon capsulates his passion to wrap the world in praying the Lord's Prayer, emphasizing “Thy Will be done.” He has taught 100’s of workshops on helping people and local churches to pray more effectively.
   Having been a pastor for 27 years, Dr. Teykl is aware of both the joys and pressures of ministry. He knows that pastors and their families need a prayer hedge around them for protection and blessing in order to fulfill their calling. In his book, Preyed On or Prayed For, he asks, “Could the pastor be the least prayed for person in the local church today? He teaches congregations how to protect their shepherds from Satan’s fiery darts.
   Dr. Teykl holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Sam Houston State University, Master of Theology at Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University, and Doctorate of Ministry with honors from Oral Roberts University. He lives in Houston with his wife, Kathleen, of over 50 years and his two dogs. He has 10 grandchildren who are a delight to his life. In his spare time he teaches on the staff of the Bible Seminary in Houston.Whereas many churches measure success by the A B C's (Attendance, Buildings, and Cash) Dr. Teykl believes our true success is based on how we please God and are faithful to His Will.
