Larry Leckrone of Kurtz, Indiana is an ordained elder, a commissioned song-evangelist, and one of about 16 tenured evangelists in the Church of the Nazarene. He has devoted his life since graduating from Olivet Nazarene University to itinerant ministry in the field of evangelism. He has traveled full-time, conducting revivals, camp meetings, concerts, family life festivals, and kids' krusades. He is a gifted preacher, singer, and trumpet player.
Tamla, his wife, is also a musician and contributes greatly to ministry through the keyboards and singing. Her passion is to see people saved and sanctified and grow in grace. Her devotion is evident through her tender spirit and deep surrender.
Larry attended the Lausanne II World Congress on Evangelism in Manila with world church leaders from 191 nations. He has served on a General Commission to study the role of the evangelist as he relates to the overall mission of the Church today. He currently is a member the Evangelists Committee that serves with the Revivalism Coordinator as a steering committee and liaison to the General Church. He and Tamla attended the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C. They have ministered all across the United States and Canada as well as Africa and England.
They have a number of musical projects to extend their ministry beyond the walls of the church. Ministry in many world areas has expanded their overall effectiveness in personalizing the gospel to many cultures and customs. They are in demand in a variety of settings and carry a burden to see God's Church revived in this day of nominal-ism. Their spirit is contagious and their message is pertinent.
The Leckrones' involvement with all ages emphasizes the great need for renewal in everyone. Their thirst for the Word and desire to proclaim the need for holy living helps others to catch a glimpse of the process and adventure in serving God through a surrendered life.
