Larry came to know Christ as his Savior when he was fifteen and moved to Florida. He was invited to a youth group meeting of a small Southern Baptist Church in Florida and, through its ministry, trusted Christ as Savior and Lord.
He graduated from Florida Bible College and received his BA in Biblical Education and Theology in 1976 and a Master of Religious Education degree from Covington Theological Seminary in 1982.
Larry served as a non-vocational pastor in several churches through the years before being called as the children’s pastor at FBCN in 2004. Sensing a new call on his life, he began serving in the areas of pastoral care and senior adults in 2012. He feels honored and blessed with the opportunity to reach those in need and to minister to the senior adults of our congregation.
Larry has been married to his wife Patty for over 40 years and they have been blessed with 3 daughters and 8 grandchildren.
