Larry Stockstill is a teaching pastor at Bethany Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He served as senior pastor there for 30 years. The church was first pastored by his father and passed to him in 1983 when he was 30 years old and it’s now under the leadership of his son. Under his leadership, the church set up a small group structure that became a worldwide model. He has sent out 28 Associate Pastors to plant churches and some of them are the largest in America. In 2001 he started the Surge project, a church planting model based on mentoring and multiplication and in 14 years planted 22,000 small rural churches in 12 world time zones. He’s been married to Melanie for over 42 years and has 6 children and 15 grandchildren.
Larry joins Greg Surratt and Darrin Patrick to talk about his career in ministry, the work of leading leaders, the nature of fathering, and more.
