Terry Rathmann was born and reared in rural Minnesota where he worked on local farms starting at the young age of eight years old. As a young man, Terry left his small town and joined the United States Army Infantry. After serving his country, he went to college and received a bachelor’s degree in political science and Business Administration. Terry was the first person in his immediate family to complete college. He then spent nearly five years working at Turner Broadcasting Systems in the satellite division, representing the Turner Networks.
Terry left TBS to take a position at DIRECTV, owned by Hughes Electronics and then General Motors and now AT&T. After spending over five years in business development for DIRECTV, Terry’s entrepreneurial spirit could no longer be contained. He founded his first company, Worldly Concepts LLC, in the fall of 2000, as a sales and marketing consulting firm for businesses within the satellite industry. After several years of helping other satellite companies grow, Terry decided to form his own satellite company named Direct Satellite TV.

Terry published his first book titled “Juror 11: A Story of Murder A Story of Judgment”. The book takes the reader on a journey into the courtroom, where it allows you to take your place in one of the 12 chairs in the jury panel box. The book is based on a true story from a time when Terry was the foreman in a murder trial. The book is written in a way so as not to sway the reader to think of the defendant guilty or innocent. When the trial portion of the book is completed, you are asked to go to the website and vote guilty or not guilty on the 6 felony charges levied against the defendant. Then you are taken into the courtroom where you will read about the arguments and discussions of the original 12 jurors. You will be able to compare your thoughts with their thoughts. The question is, can you be a fair and impartial juror?
Terry also founded a nonprofit 501(c) (3) corporation called A Shepherd’s Life. It is a ministry-based company whose purpose is to lead people in studying God’s word, chapter by chapter, and verse by verse. Our desire is that everyone can understand what God has done for us in the past, how He is working in our present and how God is preparing our future through His Son Jesus Christ our Risen Lord and Savior.

In 2016 Terry started to take courses at Dallas Theological Seminary where he plans on obtain a Masters in Christian Education. Terry is learning to “Teach Truth and Love Well." Terry is an ordained minister.
Recently Terry was given a vision to start March For Jesus Inc., nonprofit 501(c) (3) corporation. The main goal is to organize marches in different cities to Glorify God, by honoring His Son Jesus Christ our risen Lord and Savior. Terry feels that believers can gather to help transform families and entire communities by committing ourselves to be role models worth following. The only way to do this, is by leaving our fleshly desires behind us and allowing the Holy Spirit to lead, guide and direct our lives.
