Brown Deer Baptist Church
Pastor Larry and Ramona
Pastor Larry is from Texas and is embracing our colder climate with open arms. He enjoys fishing, hunting, and following Texas Aggie sports. He often processes his own meat, and is also a great cook. He specializes in barbecue and foods with a cajun flair.
Larry is passionate about missions. He has traveled twice to Brazil and three times to Mescalero, New Mexico on mission trips. He has also participated in Texas-Mexico border ministry, as well as a trip to Manitowoc, Wisconsin; where he first caught the missions bug. He was certified as a counselor in substance abuse, marriage and family counseling by the Texas Department of Mental Health.
Larry and his wife, Ramona, are celebrating 26 years of marriage in 2019. They met at Texas A&M University, where Larry received his master's degree in education and Ramona studied agricultural journalism and human nutrition. She enjoys fishing with Larry, as well as researching and gardening with native plants.
Ramona helps run a ministry of encouragement to pastors' wives. She also dabbles with music, proofreading, and website editing. However, she believes her strongest calling in life is to be involved in pure water ministry. God has put an intense burden on her heart for the children who die every year simply because they lack clean water. She has organized a fund raiser for the Pure Water, Pure Love ministry in the past; and recently completed health education training with Living Water International in Houston,Texas.
The Griffith's have 3 children – Dallas, Daniel, and Anissa.
The Griffith family has been embraced by our church and we feel blessed to have Pastor Larry and his family serving our congregation for the last 10 years!
