Terri Wilhelm

Director of Music Ministries

Terri Wilhelm is happy to be fulfilling the role of Director of Music Ministries here at Hudson UMC. She has lived all her life in Ohio in the cities of Findlay, Bowling Green, Orrville, Wooster, Nellie, Alliance and Hudson. Terri is an entrepreneur, sometimes by choice and sometimes because of situations. She holds a bachelor's degree+ in music education from Bowling Green State University. She has taught vocal music from K-12 and at Kenyon College and directed competition show choirs, barbershop quartets, and musicals. She was also Assistant Director of the Alliance Neighborhood Center, a non-profit agency promoting after school programs for K-6. Terri expanded the program while she was there to K-12 and added a weekly meal provided by churches in the area. In addition, she was Assistant Manager for the Carnation Mall in Alliance and Assistant Manager at World Market in Mayfield Heights. She has also held several administrative positions in churches, offices, etc. 

One of the most interesting careers Terri had was as owner of a 50's style ice cream parlor with sandwiches and soups called “SSScoops” in Wooster.  One wall of the restaurant was floor to ceiling candy and Candy Bouquets.   SSScoops incorporated all of her passions:  music, administration, teaching, and creativity.  The servers wore bowling shirts and poodle skirts and sang and danced for entertainment.  Weekly car shows in the parking lot were fun escapes.  The business won the “New Business of the Year” from the Wooster Chamber of Commerce.  

Real Estate has been the career that has lasted.  Terri is a Million Dollar Seller with Remax Haven and has worked for other agencies in other cities.  She really enjoys working with Keith and Amy Pendergrass in Hudson.  

Terri also sits on the Parsonage Committee of the Canal District of the East Ohio Methodist Conference, where she is a real estate consultant.When not working,

Terri enjoys traveling, knitting, crocheting, reading and cooking.  But, most of all, spending time with Hoyte and her daughter, Megan and son, Timothy.  Her happiest times are when the whole family is together.

“Thank you, Hudson UMC, for making me feel welcomed in my role as director of the bell choir and chancel choir.  I love working with all of you!  You are a blessing to the church!”
