Pastor Lawrence W. Vanley   

He accepted Christ in 1966 at Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist (a Southern Baptist Affiliate)

Lawrence Vanley answered God’s Call on September 1, 1995 and was licensed on September 13, 1995 by pastor Scottie Stice the serving pastor of Skyline Baptist Church following this momentous event he preached at Sunrise, Skyline, McCombs Churches

On April 14, 1996 he accepted the interim Pastor position at McCombs under the recommendation Dr. Richard Ware.

Pastor’s Vanley’s family joined McCombs Baptist July 24, 1996 and in August of the same year he was ordained in a service led by Dr. Ware. His ordination led to his becoming the Bi-vocational Pastor of McCombs Baptist Church on September 18, 1996.

 Philosophy: II Timothy 4: 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.  And never bring strange fire into the church (if it is not in the bible it cannot be in McCombs)

Our Motto: Young at heart led by the Spirit

The Journey: Though the journey has begun it will never be complete until the church, the body becomes a unit of one mind, one faith, and one baptism, through Christ Jesus our Lord.

“As Pastor my role is to demonstrate our congregation the urgency of reading, studying, and implementing the essential doctrine of the Holy Scripture. 

We begin our focus on the youth, who are especially vulnerable to the world, and allow them to see the benefits of faith in Christ

For those who are middle age, we reaffirm their worth and level their foundation of understanding as they continue to seek the Kingdom of Heaven and develop a true relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

The mature, the elders of knowledge, we sharpen their skill of listening, Hearing, and understanding those of a younger age without judgment.

No matter the age each member of the body of McCombs must move toward perfect love which cast out fear, doubt, anxiety, and strengthen the walk of every member as stated in scripture.”

To put it simply I am a life coach, led by He who gives life to all.
