ALPHARETTA, Ga. (BP)–Terry P. Moncrief, 60, who had served as a North American Mission Board missionary since 1969, died Dec. 7 after a year-long battle with brain cancer.
Retired from NAMB at the time of his death, Moncrief last served in Atlanta as director of the Clark Howell-Techwood Baptist Center. The Techwood center recently was renamed The Moncrief Center, in honor of Moncrief, who had served as a missionary there since 1972 for the Georgia Baptist Convention and NAMB.
A native of Augusta, Ga., Moncrief was a graduate of Georgia Tech, where he earned a B.S. degree in industrial engineering. He also earned a master’s degree in religious education at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., and a master’s degree in social work from the University of Georgia.
Moncrief is survived by his wife Becky, also a NAMB missionary, who served with her husband at the Techwood center, and three children, Lori, Karen and Cathryne, and two grandchildren.
