Hi, I am Larry White, and I have served at Streams of Hope for 10 years.  I currently serve in a part-time position as the Associate Pastor of Outreach, in addition to being a teaching Elder.  I also serve in the community through my other work as the Executive Director of Mid-county United Ministries, or MUM.  MUM is a non-profit in the Wheaton area that assists the under-resourced.  By connecting to the community, I keep our church alert to opportunities to extend our influence in the Baltimore-Washington Corridor, like partnering with Toys for Tots at Christmas or organizing block parties in the summer.  My wife, Becky, and I have been married for 35 years, and we have 7 grandchildren.

A Brief History

My spiritual journey began with my dad when he, just before I was born, became a Christ-follower.  I grew up around the church, but I did not come to a personal faith until my sophomore year of college.  A year later, I began to serve in Campus Crusade for Christ which took me from South Carolina to Texas and then with my wife, Becky, to California.  I met Becky on the journey as she also was serving in the high school ministry of Campus Crusade.  Seven years into our time in California, I experienced a call that brought a shift in my area of ministry from para-church to the church.  Since then I have served as a single adult pastor at Skyline Wesleyan and Willow Creek Community Church.  I also served as a church planter in my home state of South Carolina.  Becky and I have been married for 35 years, have two children and seven grandchildren.

Education
