Elder Dale Young
Elders Michael & Sarah White
Michael and Sarah have been married for 34 years and have four children between the ages of 20 and 30. They came to LRC 25 years ago and immediately knew it was “home.” They currently serve as elders and love to work together to encourage the body of Christ. They are passionate about God’s Word, love to share it, and have a heart for marriages and young people. Their hearts’ desire is to strengthen and support others in living out their faith, pursuing God's mission for their lives, and enjoying the abundant life Christ promises. Mike and Sarah love to go for walks, spend time at the beach, have coffee dates, and to spend time with their children. They stand amazed at the goodness of God and are awed that He has fashioned their lives to be an example of delighting in and trusting Him, as they've journeyed with Him and He has molded their lives to shape their desires to match His.
Men's Ministry: Pastor Ryan Young
Women's Ministry: Claudia Donovan
Claudia first heard the call of the Lord to disciple women 16 years ago and has continued to seek the Lord for His direction and guidance in this calling. She has been active in Bible study, intercessory prayer ministry, and served for a number of years in the hospitality ministry. Three years ago Claudia was set in as leader in the LRC Women's Ministry, where she continues to disciple women through Bible study, prayer, and teaching events. Recently her desire to study the New Testament Greek has opened the Scriptures to her in an amazing way, and she takes every opportunity to share with others what she is gleaning from her studies, both in the pulpit and with the women she mentors. Her transparency cultivates an atmosphere for functional faith to be explored and shared within the LRC community.

She also enjoys learning, laughing, listening, spending time with friends and family, walking, eating food prepared by others and watching God answer prayer.
