Dr. Larry Lucas and his wife Teresa are both P.K.’s (pastor’s kids) and love serving at Cross Timbers Bible Church. Dr. Larry wants people to feel like they have “come home” beginning with their first visit to CTBC. Larry and Teresa have four children and six grandchildren, and a new Boxer puppy called Roxy.

Pastor Larry has a keen interest in helping people become Christ followers, helping them to find spiritual family, friendships, strong families, and authentic spiritual growth in the church. He has an unwavering commitment to expository preaching and helping people learn the Word and how to apply it to life. You will find Pastor Larry to be an intellectually curious person with a broad range of interests including, but not limited to, church history; history of the ancient near east; linguistics and languages; philosophical hermeneutics; theories of knowledge and interpretation; specialized biblical and theological studies; shooting sports; leatherworking; woodworking; racing pigeons (no, we are not kidding!); how to cook healthy (while longing for chili or steak), and the art of how to get out of implementing the onerous “honey do” list.

Pastor Larry attended Evangelical Christian College; Mesa College; University of Minnesota; Western Baptist Seminary; Southwestern Baptist Seminary; California Graduate School of Theology; Dallas Theological Seminary, and did post-graduate research at the Vrije Univeriteit te Amsterdam in the Netherlands, and at the Universität München, Germany. He holds earned B.A., M.Div., Th.M. and Ph.D. degrees.  He has served in a number of large, medium and small churches; taught in colleges and graduate schools. His interests continue to grow as research continues. 

Dr. Larry and Teresa would welcome the opportunity to meet you at Cross Timbers Bible Church.
