Terri Chane'l Nightingale is the wife of Pastor Nightingale. Lady Nightingale has always been active in ministry. At a young age she knew that God had a call upon her life. She was raised under the tutelage of Pastor Carrie Buie Bryant who is the Overseer of True Holiness Ministries (formerly known as Tabernacle of Prayer for all People, Inc) from 1979 to 1997. In 1997 she and Pastor Nightingale relocated to Austin, TX. During this time, she was mentored by Bishop John W. Horne and First Lady Barbara Horne; not knowing that God was to soon call her into a leadership role where she would need to use the guidance that she obtained during her time in Texas. She also had the honor of recording with the Full Gospel Holy Temple choir in Dallas, TX.
After a two years in Austin, Texas, God lead them to Raleigh, North Carolina where she and Pastor Nightingale lived for one year.
