Larry Duggins | Leader
D. Min., Executive Director, Pilgrim Theologian, Resource Management, Leadership Mentor
Larry is a pastor and a business person. He is equally comfortable in the worlds of spiritual leadership and financial analysis, and he seeks to understand the margins in which those worlds meet. Larry spent 25 years in the financial industry as a banker and an entrepreneur, and has led people all of his life. Central themes in Larry’s theology include the transformational power of pilgrimage, the importance of living into the mission Christ set forth for us, and the centrality of the Holy Spirit in prayer, discernment and ministry.
Larry and Rev. Dr. Elaine Heath co-founded the Missional Wisdom Foundation. Today, Larry works closely with Bret Wells, Denise Crane and Rev. Luke Lingle as a collaborative lead team to direct the activities of the Foundation.
