He has faithfully pastored the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. since 1989.  Reverend Streeter has a special bond and love for all his members, especially seniors of his church and has a passion to see men take their rightful place as stronger leaders, in their homes, churches and communities.



Reverend Streeter is a Contributor to the book, “Say It!” (Moody Press), where he wrote an article on “The Ministry of Vision” an example of expository preaching from an Old Testament prophetic book.

Reverend Streeter is greatly encouraged by the words of the Apostle Paul as recorded in Philippians 3:13, 14, “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended; but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Jesus Christ.”

Our History

3Mt. Pleasant has been blessed to  have only three pastors: Rev. Robert Anderson, Rev. Sidney Yancey and Rev. Terry D. Streeter, each being diligent in following God’s vision for the church. Mt. Pleasant was born in the mind of the late Rev. Robert Anderson, an individual who had a humble beginning in Orange, Virginia. He started the church as a small mission in 1916 on the corner of 11th and V streets NW Washington, DC. The church was later established in 1918. What started with an original group of only five members has grown into a congregation of more than 1000 members who currently call Mt. Pleasant “home.” Those faithful five will always be remembered: Daisy Frye, Lena Williams, Mildred Johnson, Charles Bradford and Hezekiah Leftwich. All of them faithfully served Mt. Pleasant until they were called to eternal rest.
