Lead Pastor - email@example.com
Pastor Don is a graduate of Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. He and his wife, Josie, both grew up in New Jersey, have been married for almost 20 years and have 4 beautiful children: Zach, Isabelle, Elias and Adeline. Don and Josie have been involved in ministry for the past 16 years, and have served in Children's Ministry, Youth Ministry, College and Career, Young Adults, and as Associate Pastors. Their passion and desire is to know Christ and grow in that relationship and they want to communicate that relationship in a simple, clear way so that the youngest to the oldest can understand what it means to be a fully committed follower of Christ. As the apostle Paul says in Philippians 3:12, they want to "press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me His own." When not doing ministry, they love to spend time with their kids in whatever sport or activity they happen to be involved with and spend time at the beach - which makes living in Florida extra special!

Pastor of Pastoral Care Ministries - firstname.lastname@example.org
Pastor Frank Clark and his wife, Faye, have been ministering in central Florida for more than 30 years. They have served as Youth Pastors, Associate Pastors, and Senior Pastors. They came to LifePoint as charter members and Associate Pastors in 2002. Pastor Frank has an Associate Degree in Real Estate from St. Phillips College, a Bachelor's Degree in Education from Southwest Texas State University, a Masters Degree in Business Administration and Management from Webster University, and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) in Theology from International Seminary. Faye also has a Bachelors Degree in Theology (Th.B) from International Seminary.
Over the past 25 years Pastor Frank and Faye have developed a "Care Ministry" which is a ministry that strives to carry out the instruction to "Do to others as you would have them do to you" (Luke 6:31). The vision of the Care Ministry is to see a growing force of empowered, outreach-driven disciples of Jesus Christ, reaching the lost, healing the broken, and advancing the Kingdom of God within caring communities. This ministry provides many opportunities for volunteers to witness the love of Christ to others. The Care Ministry is an organized, systematic attempt to say to people, "We Care Because He Cares." Participation is open to anyone who has the heart to serve in this capacity.
