Larry is excited that the Lord has guided his steps to serve our heroes with Armed Forces Baptist Missions. His life’s passion is to share the gospel and run a PTSD group in his hometown. He will work with his home church and pastor to see souls come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior and to disciple them to serve their Savior.
As a retired soldier serving during the Cold War and Vietnam eras, Larry knows first-hand the struggles our heroes and their families face. Using his life’s experiences, he focuses his ministry on the local Armed Forces Retirement Home, VA Medical Center, and as a volunteer Chaplain in the Sheriff’s Office.
Larry was raised in a Christian home with a father and mother who strongly influenced him in everything; most importantly they introduced him to Jesus at the age of eighteen. His father was a deacon in his home church and his mother was the godliest woman ever to be in his life. Larry joined the Army two years after high school. After spending twenty years in the Army around the world, Larry felt a call on his life and attended Bible College and Seminary. In March 2015 he attended a PTSD workshop and knew he had found the perfect path to answer the Lord’s call in his life.
