About Barry & Terryl Bruce
Barry and Terryl Bruce founded The Way Out Ministries in 1984 to reach the people of Hawaiian Gardens, a small urban area in Los Angeles County. Many of Hawaiian Gardens' families live below the national poverty level, and many young people turn to gangs for acceptance.
Through The Way Out, Terryl and Barry coordinate weekly youth clubs, support groups, Bible studies, and a referral network of service agencies. Terryl is the principal of The Way Out Ministries Christian Academy, a private mission school for low-income junior and senior high school students. Barry is pastor of a church in the community that was planted by The Way Out Ministries in 2003. They have three children, Ryan, Rachel, and Michelle, all of whom are actively involved in ministry.
