Lance W. Love graduated from the Center for Christian Education in Irving, TX. In 1999 and received his BA in Biblical Studies from Southern Christian University in Montgomery, AL. in 2001. He has served as minister for the Moline Church of Christ since 1999.
Lance grew up on a ranch in West Texas and spent twelve years in the medical field as a Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer and Registered Vascular Technologist. During that time his
relationship with Jesus Christ deepened and he found himself ministering to his patients more and more as he went about his daily job. Lance worked for several congregations in Washington and Texas
as a volunteer youth minister and worship director before returning to school and going into full time ministry.
“My goal in life is to be a servant of God, not just a church goer. When I prepare my sermons, I study first for myself, then for the lesson. I preach expository sermons, meaning that I study to find what the original writer was saying to his original audience. If I can know what he was trying to get them to hear, and apply that message to my own life, then I can preach that message to others.”
One of Lance’s greatest passions is to help people come to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. “I’ve been through many hardships in my own life, and at times it seemed like everyone had abandoned me. But as I’ve turned to God again and again, I see his presence and I know He is real.” Lance loves to share Jesus Christ with people who are hurting and need answers to life’s questions.
