What attracted you to Chapel in the Pines? At first we loved the location and setting of the church. Zach grew up down a five mile gravel road, so it immediately felt like home. They also loved the proximity to their house, and how beautiful the sanctuary was, with the high windows looking out to the pine trees. Once they started visiting regularly they got to know a lot of the members. Everyone was very friendly, and they felt like it would be a good church to raise Reese and Olivia in.
How long have you lived in this area and what other places have you lived? Zach and Haley are from the western part of NC in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Zach from Blowing Rock and Haley from Elkin. They went to college at opposite ends of the state. Haley at ECU and Zach at WCU. They both moved to the triangle area about 10 years ago, and met through the BikeMS ride. They’ve lived together in the Chapel Hill and Carrboro area together for the last 8 years.
What do you do for a living (your work/job)? Haley is the CEO of Children’s Flight of Hope, a non profit organization that flies children across the world who need specialized medical treatment. She’s been there for 5 years and has helped take the organization from a Southeastern operation to a global operation. She oversees all operations of CFOH including program delivery, global program expansion, corporate flight donations, and private giving. Zach has been in the cycling industry for the last 10 years, has been an athletic apparel designer at Performance Bicycle, and recently accepted a new position at Performance as the Brand Manager. He oversees public relations, sales outreach, social media growth, and innovative digital marketing initiatives for Performance’s 105 stores across the country.
What are your favorite pass times? Zach and Haley love spending time with the girls, Reese and Olivia. Whether it’s playing outside, riding bikes, taking trips back home to the mountains, or just lounging around, family time is the best pastime. When it comes to extracurricular activities, Haley is a phenomenal volleyball setter, Zach plays music in a band, Reese is in to dance and gymnastics, and Olivia loves soccer and gymnastics.
What would you like others to know about you? The Terry’s think raising their girls to be strong independent women who are both treated equally and fairly, and treat all others equally and fairly, is one of the most important, and sometimes challenging, goals for them as parents. They are thankful to be members of CITP, where both childhood development, and inclusiveness of all people, are considered a top priority for the congregation.
