Nursing Home Ministry Calling

Nursing Home Ministry Calling

My name is Terry Comeford, and I have a nursing home ministry calling on my life. I was born in Norfolk, Nebraska in the United States of America. I am an Army Veteran. Shortly after I received baptism at a summer church camp at the age of thirteen, my journey with the Lord started in earnest. It was at this time that I felt that God was calling me to the ministry. I went through a time of searching for truth. That path led me to explore many different religious organizations, synagogues, and churches.

After I left the United States Army, I moved to San Antonio, Texas. I lived there for fifteen years, and I became a funeral director and embalmer. In 1999, I moved back to Nebraska to lend assistance to my aging mother. My mother went into a nursing home, and I started helping with the church services there. She went to heaven three years ago.

Seven years ago, I married the love of my life, Sally Mercado. When I married Sally, I started to make a fully committed effort to follow Jesus. The best decision of my life. Together we share our passion for Jesus in a nursing home ministry. I started doing Bible teaching, preaching, and leading the worship service as I mentioned earlier. We do a complete service with communion for the residents. I am also the leader of a men’s group at our local church.
