As our Educational Pastor, Larry serves broadly as a teacher—preaching with a degree of regularity and coordinating the Life Education arm of the church’s ministry. Larry has served as a pastor at Christ’s Covenant Church of Winona Lake, Indiana since 1981. In addition to pastoring, he enjoys speaking at retreats and conferences as the Lord provides opportunities. He has written a number of articles and is the author of three books, Walking Like Jesus Did, Loving Your Wife as Christ Loves the Church, and Gospel-Centered Grandparenting (coming Aug. 2019). Pastor Larry received his BA in New Testament Greek in 1976 and MDiv in1979 from Grace College and Theological Seminary. In 1993, he went on to complete his Doctor of Ministry at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Illinois. Larry’s aspiration is to be a useful tool in the Lord’s hand in “spreading the fragrance of the knowledge of Christ” (2 Corinthians 2:14) through his life, teaching and writing. When Pastor Larry gets time to relax, he enjoys spending time with his wife Gladine, being with his kids and grandkids, reading books on history, or paddling around in his kayak.
