Who was Terry Winter?
Terry Winter (November 1, 1942 – December 10, 1998) was an independent Canadian evangelist of Plymouth Brethren background, based in British Columbia. He had his own television show which was seen across Canada on Vision TV. His program took an intellectual approach to faith.
Terry Winter had a B.A. (1964) from the University of British Columbia and a Doctorate in Pastoral Theology (a predecessor of the D.Min.) from Fuller Seminary.
Terry Winter gained national prominence in 1975 as host of his award-winning Christian television program, "The Terry Winter Show". Airing on 26 major Canadian stations, including VisionTV, the show featured interviews with leading international Christians such as Billy Graham, Charles Colson, Michael Green, John Stott, Tony Campolo and Brian Stiller. Over one million people in Canada and northern US viewed this program weekly. For more than 30 years, Winter conducted city-wide evangelistic crusades across the country.
Holding a doctorate in pastoral theology from Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, Calif., he was a frequent speaker at evangelistic banquets, denominational conferences, theological schools and seminaries. He participated in the Lausanne Conferences on world evangelism and the Billy Graham Conference in Amsterdam, as well as several North American conferences, including the Canadian MB Conference in July 1998.
