lead pastor | Larry Williams
I used to be a guy just sitting in the row, doing anything or nothing from day one of the church plant. God began doing a work in me and creating a passion for Him. I served doing whatever was needed in various capacities. God softened my heart to kids and I began working with some of the older kids. This grew into a youth ministry. I was the youth pastor for a few years. I never planned on becoming a lead pastor. When the founding pastor, Jerry Breedlove, felt the Lord release him from ministry at Crossroads, there was a sense that I was to be the lead pastor of Crossroads. This is not as common as one would think, to go from "in the pew" to "staff" to "lead pastor." With prayer, wise counsel, and support of many, I was installed as lead pastor in January of 2011. Since then, I have received my Masters in Ministerial Leadership from Crown College.
I became a believer in February of 2000. I was trying to "fix" my marriage and began going to church. The pastor came over to my house, and I knew the "wages for my sin," but I finally understood the "gift of everlasting life."
I pretend to like football and claim Alabama as my team. I am willing to cheer for any team that has me over. I enjoy working out in my shop making ink pens out of wood and acrylic.
