Terry Stokka
Terry Stokka and his wife, Artha, were both born and raised in North Dakota and have been married for 36 years. During their 23 years in the Air Force, they were actively involved in AWANA and the Officers’ Christian Fellowship (OCF). After retirement from the Air Force, they spent 10 years as OCF staff representatives at the Air Force Academy. They now consider themselves fully retired, and are able to contribute more time to participation in a marriage mentoring team and other church responsibilities.

The Stokkas are blessed with four children, whom they homeschooled for several years. Three of their children are now married, and one daughter and her family are in ministry in Central Asia. Terry and Artha have five grandchildren and are expecting their sixth in June.
