Terry Mattingly

Terry Mattingly’s father was a pastor and his mother a language arts teacher; thus, it’s no surprise that Mattingly is a journalist and teacher who focuses on religion. In 1991, Mattingly began teaching at Denver Seminary and, later, was a founding member of the Association for Communications and Theological Education. While teaching, he has continued to write the weekly “On Religion” column for the features department of the Scripps Howard News Service in Washington, D.C., which is sent to about 350 newspapers in North America. Mattingly is the director of the Washington Journalism Center and its journalism education programs at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities headquarters. He’s a music fanatic whose interests range from Celtic acoustic guitar to Russian chant. His wife, Debra Bridges Mattingly, is a librarian in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. They have two children, 21-year-old Sarah Jeanne, and 16-year-old Frye Lewis.
