Reverend Larry Hoxey is an ordained minister with a Master of Divinity degree from Harvard Divinity School (1997). Reverend Hoxey also holds a Master of Arts degree in Comparative Religion from Western Michigan University (1993).
With pastoral leadership experience in four denominations, Reverend Hoxey shares a diverse, holistic and healthy range of styles and perspectives in his lively Christian ministry. Reverend Hoxey brings God’s message alive through his engaging manner, an enthusiastic approach that both dramatizes and illustrates timeless spiritual principles.
Christian ministry is more than just rehearsal and repetition of rites and rituals. This is why Reverend Larry dedicates his life to sharing God’s love and truth in an interesting, relevant, and energized manner. Contrary to the stereotype, church and typical Sunday services needn’t be boring, dry and lifeless.
The Hoxey family ministers to a splendid range of people from all ages, wages and stages. Reverend Larry and his wife Cynthia and son Sean reside in Michigan, where their faith-filled spirituality helps illuminate God’s many blessings. Both Larry and Cynthia are life partners in ministry as they demonstrate joy through a God-infused life.
Reverend Hoxey is active in his community in many ways. One of the most recent demonstrations of Larry’s public engagement concerns how Larry has been quoted in an article just published in a major national magazine, The Atlantic Monthly. Larry was interviewed by one of the Atlantic Monthly’s reporters about a local phenomenon, a community mascot known as Whittaker the turkey. Yes, a wild turkey became the subject of national attention recently after the bird’s demise in the local intersection which it owned and occupied for over six months. Larry’s friend and colleague, Dr. Brian Malley, was also quoted in the article. Here’s the link to the article:
