Larry Emerson

Lead Pastor

Pastors Larry and Debbie Emerson

Pastor Larry is a native Houstonian, having grown up in the Aldine Community where he graduated from MacArthur High School in 1985.  It was while he was a supervisor at United Parcel Service and attending a local community college for Business Management that God radically changed the course of his life in 1987.  He left UPS to attend Bible College and after graduating from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in 1989, Pastor Larry joined the staff at North Central Church.  He and Debbie were married the following year, 1990, and together they have served North Central Church in various positions of ministry before being elected to serve as Senior Lead Pastors in 2007.  They are community minded with a heart for family ministry and global missions.  Their greatest passion is to see people of all ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities, come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior.  On a personal note, they love to travel and be outdoors, hiking, biking, and enjoying all the beautiful things God has made.  They have three adult children whom are all serving in full-time ministry with their spouses, along with six grandchildren that they adore.
