About Global Church Family

Since 1997, Ashley and Carlie Terradez have been ministers of the Gospel with a special mandate to “Empower believers in the promises of God”. Today, the ministry has international offices, and Ashley and Carlie minister around the world through television, events, and Power Academy, their free online Bible school.

Founders Ashley & Carlie Terradez

It was through Terradez Ministries that Ashley and Carlie held their first Pastors’ Retreat in 2019. This special retreat gave some of their closest friends from around the globe the opportunity to meet and encourage each other. The retreat went even better than expected! Encouragement was given, ideas and experience were shared, and powerful friendships were formed. In fact, these first 20 pastors all wanted to continue to edify each other after the event and created their own social media group. This group continued to grow into a powerful family of like-minded pastors who are turning the world right-side up! Within one year of their first retreat, God led Ashley and Carlie to establish a network to facilitate these life-giving relationships, the Global Church Family. Today, the Global Church Family is continuing to help pastors build powerful friendships, grow their churches, and reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
