Larry White has served on staff at Lenexa Baptist Church since 2002. During this time he has filled several roles including Children’s Pastor, Executive Pastor and Missions Pastor. He is now also serving as the Campus Pastor for The Fellowship International, the multi-ethnic campus of Lenexa Baptist Church. His heart’s desire is to see the nations reached with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His motto for this effort is, “From our neighborhoods to the nations.”
Larry became a Christian in 1989 while listening to Greg Laurie on the radio. He realized that he had never surrendered his life to Jesus to be his personal Lord and Savior. So, on that day, Larry prayed and accepted Jesus as his Savior. At the time, Larry was the vice-president of a family-owned construction business, and had been trained to run the business for the second generation. But God had other plans for Larry and Jeremiah 29:11 became a personal testimony for him:
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and future.”
While attending a Promise Keepers event in Denver, Larry knew that God was calling him into the ministry. Larry graduated from Calvary Bible College in 1999 with a degree in Bible and Organizational Leadership and from Liberty Theological Seminary in 2009 with a Master of Arts in Religion.
Larry and his wife Michelle have three children, Becca, Hannah and Marcus. They have helped him realize the verse in 3 John 4 which states,
“I have no greater joy than this, to know that my children walk in the truth.”
