Our Courageous Kids Ministry serve our children from ages 3 through fifth grade. Steadfast Youth is a ministry geared for students grades 6-12. Devout Ladies is a thriving ministry for women of all ages. Men of Valor is a new ministry geared for men of all ages with a desire to grow stronger spiritually in a community of faith. Then our Senior Adults, for folks ages 55+ is a very active ministry with monthly, relational, events.
A church who is practicing the scripture found in the Gospel of Mark 12:30-31, "and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.
We exist to Encounter God's Holy presence, to Equip the disciple and to Express Christ love, locally and globally.
Prior to their marriage in 2012, Pastor's Josh and Kaye both prepared for the call of God on their life. Whether the mission field in Honduras for Kaye or Ministry Team's in Sparta, TN and Dalton, GA for Josh; they submitted themselves to ministerial training. Together they served as Associate Pastor/Minister of Music here at LCOG from 2011 until the appointment as Lead Pastor's in December 2016.
Pastor Josh, an Ordained Bishop in the Church of God - Cleveland, TN; is a gifted communicator who strives to present the truth of Gods Word for practical application. He has a heart to see women and men saved by the grace of Jesus Christ often recalling the scripture found in 1 Timothy 1:15, "the saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of who I am the foremost."
Kaye more than compliments this ministry team. Her heart for service, and personal growth is evident in the way she loves and cares for her husband and her church family. Kaye is often heard encouraging others, "stir up the gift of God which is in you" (2 Timothy 1:6.) She is a driving force reminding us that we all have a gift from God, to use for Him.
Pastor's Josh and Kaye are excited to announce their family is growing
by means of adoption.
Pastor is available for speaking engagements, upon request.
