Scott howard / Senior pastor
Pastors Scott and Susan Howard have been on staff at Life Church since 1975. Since becoming Senior Pastors in 2009, they have embraced the importance of seeing the people of God deepen their relationship with Him, as well as one another. “We Are Better Together” continues to be a reoccurring theme of their messages and ministry through small group meetings and personal fellowship times. Being part of a gospel community of believers (a church) is the essence of our identity. The question, ‘Who am I?’ is answered in community with other believers, and cannot be answered any other way. Romans 12:5 says, “We are individually members of one another.” What is our calling as a church? To fulfill the “Great Commission” as effectively as we are can. Our Goal: to help as many people as possible go to heaven. Our Method: to focus on making disciples for Jesus. Our hearts are focused on: building loving relationships; sharing the gospel in word and deed; and inviting people into community with us. Remember - God Is For You!
