Larry is currently the Director of Church Health of EFCA Central. His mission is devoting his life to the spiritual vitality of leaders, and the missional renewal of churches. The former involves being a relational catalyst, stimulating vibrant spiritual life with God; facilitating encouraging, fruitful relationships with other leaders; and networking our leaders with others in and outside our movement that better equip them for life and ministry. The latter involves strategic equipping of local church leaders in 1) greater fruitfulness in multiplying disciples; 2) the cultivation of a reproducing culture of spiritual leadership; 3) the recovery and execution of the church’s mission to those outside their walls.
Larry is married to Laura and lives in Ames. They have two grown children, Katelyn and Michael.
