Tom & Terrie Wallace

founders & lead pastors

The journey is as important, as refining, as much of a testimony as the destination. That describes the ministry of Tom and Terrie Wallace.

 After spending over 20 years as denominational pastors, the two South Carolina natives and high school sweethearts-turned-married couple began a new independent church in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, under the guidance of an outside board. Journeychurch was founded on their vision to have a community church that was Holy Spirit-led… and it soon became a place where the message of the gospel, the Good News, the grace of Jesus Christ, has remained the focus of every service, message, and event. 

At Journey and under the umbrella of its many outside ministry efforts, Tom and Terrie have seen their congregation grow in numbers and in discipleship, new churches and ministries planted in South Carolina and beyond,  and thousands come to accept the Good News: the forgiveness, the redemption, the abundant life, and
the saving grace of Jesus Christ.


Tom manages a growing staff of pastors and professionals and launched the Grand Strand Pastors Cooperative, bringing churches in the community together for special services and philanthropic efforts. He has served as city director and representative for Christians United for Israel and a state overseer for the International Congress of Christian Ministers. Most recently, he launched the Grace Fellowship International Network, which credentials and resources independent ministers and ministries. 


Terrie is a worship leader and mentor. She helps many families through her counseling ministry and is a gifted Bible teacher as well. She is also know for her ability to vision-cast and create beautiful spaces as an act of worship.


The Wallaces have two adult children, Andrew, who married Ciara in November of 2020, and Mary Hannah. You can find all of them ministering throughout Journey.
