Senior Pastor Lawrence Bowlin
Pastor Lawrence Bowlin is originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, and came to faith in Christ there during his high school years. He then studied History at the University of North Carolina in Greensboro, where he first sensed a call to ministry and also met his wife, Ellen.
Soon afterward he attended Southeastern Theological Seminary in Wake Forest where he obtained his M.Div. degree in 1998. Since that time, Lawrence has served as a chaplain in Yellowstone National Park and as a pastor to churches in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. He is currently pursuing his D.Min. degree at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte.
Lawrence and Ellen have been married for eighteen years and have three girls: Grace, Joy, and Hope. As a family, they love to sing and have visited most of the national parks in the continental United States.
