Pastor Lawrence has been in ministry for 26 years and has served the house of Calvary for 9 years. He and his wife Tammy have been married for 23 years and have successfully raised three amazing kids Jonathan, Victoria and Bethany. Pastor Lawrence has a heart to father people with the love and guidance of our Heavenly Father. He is supremely passionate about preaching God's Word and doing what it says. From that position he fathers his own family and his church family. Pastor Lawrence believes in and models how to follow Jesus in faithful obedience by simply answering "Yes" to the Lord's leading. He has said "yes" to countless speaking invitations both at home in Ontario, across Canada and internationally. Pastor Lawrence loves a good book, a great teaching series, and a Spirit filled church service. He is a life-long learner and always enjoys learning something new. He is always first inline to lend a helping hand, pay for a stranger's meal, or lend a listening ear. He and his wife Tammy believe so strongly in the union of marriage that they have time and time again poured out their lives to couples in trouble or at the end of their rope. Glory to God that so many marriages are not only still together but healthy. On a personal note, he enjoys a great cup of coffee, a round or two (or three) of golf with friends, as well as "crews'n" in the Jeep and being out on the water.
