Larry's Story

Larry grew up in Sulphur Springs, TX. His high school days were consumed with running track, which he did all over the country, representing Sulphur Springs High School, and eventually, Dallas Baptist University. While at DBU, he met the love of his life, Donna, and they were soon married. Nine years later, they received their only child, Melody, who now is married and has four kids of her own.


Larry has been instrumental in beginning many ministries, the most recent being New Beginnings Fellowship Baptist Church in Sulphur Springs, TX. In the thirteen years of his pastorate there, the church grew tremendously, expanding its ministry not only in Sulphur Springs but also through planting mission churches in northern Mexico and the Philippine islands. New Beginnings still supports the work in those countries many years later.


Larry's ministry is encouraging the church to live life in a passionate pursuit of Jesus Christ. His preaching is bold and powerful and will challenge your congregation. He is available for retreats, pulpit supply, revival meetings, Bible conferences and family life events. Please contact Larry if you have any questions.
