Rev. Larry Teal serves as our Senior Pastor at Liberty Baptist Church. Pastor Larry was born and raised in Pike County Alabama. He obtained his undergraduate education at Troy State University (now Troy University) and received seminary training at Samford University, Birmingham Theological Seminary, and Andersonville Theological Seminary. His service at Liberty is bivocational (which means he works as a Process Control Engineer at a local paper mill during the week!).
Pastor Larry enjoys hiking and backpacking along with mountain biking and kayaking. You may find him along any of the trails or waterways in the area! Focusing on GOD as Creator and Savior, is often a tenent of his teachings. He is a relational pastor -- seeking to form real relationships with those he shepherds. His spiritual gifts include teaching and preaching. His heart's desire is to see people grow in the grace and knowledge of JESUS CHRIST. Coming from a ministry background as a Minister to Students, you will quickly see that Pastor Larry loves children and teens. Kids with The KING (children's sermon) is an important part of every Sunday service.
Pastor Larry and his wife, Kathy, reside in Prattville. Their daughter, Diane Ivy, resides with her husband, Robert, in the Ft. Worth, Texas area.
Will eventually get me a bio to post here.
