Terry may seem unusual, but throughout the 20th century, child preachers have developed a strong following. Historian Ted Lavigne has spent years collecting information about children who preach the gospel -- kids such as Richard Headrick, who began preaching on the radio at just 5 years old in 1922. As a teenager, he toured the country with his parents, performing in a tent. The evangelist went on to join the U.S. Air Force but eventually left the military to become a minister. He passed away in 2001. (Courtesy TJ Lavigne/Child Preacher Network )
