Meet Our Staff
Larry D. Morgan
Pastor Morgan and his wife, Pam, came to University Boulevard in January of 2009, responding to God’s call to lead the mission and people of UBNC. He previously served as staff minister in Chicago, Illinois and Garden City, Kansas and as Lead Pastor in Kentucky, Ohio, and Kansas before becoming Lead Pastor of UBNC. Preparation for the role began in a family that influenced him for God and for good. It continued with an education that provided tools through which God could work and keep developing mind and spirit. Today he enjoys a relationship with Jesus Christ that is real, growing and defined by a desire that the love of God through Jesus forms and informs all aspects of his life. To be a Servant/Leader who faithfully and effectively preaches the Word of God, prays for and helps equip the people of God for ministry motivates his style. He wants to lead by example and come alongside those who desire to be God’s people today and meet the challenges of ministering in the days ahead. The joy and excitement of God’s call, and the thrill of seeing people respond, keeps ministry challenging and rewarding.
