Larry Murray, Lead Pastor

Larry has served as the lead pastor at PlanoBibleChapel since 2004. He and his wife, DeeDee, have three children, Michael, Lauren, and Stephen. Born in 1968 and raised in Austin and Garland, Texas, Larry trusted in Christ as his Savior at an early age and was a member of Reinhardt Bible Church in Dallas as a youth. Larry and DeeDee met at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX and were married in 1991. A year later, they moved to Mesquite, TX for Larry to pursue seminary work at Dallas Seminary (ThM '96). At the same time, he was hired as a staff member at Lake Ridge Bible Church where he served from 1992-2004 until moving to Plano.

As the Lead Pastor, Larry is responsible for shepherding and leading the congregation, ministry leaders and staff through visionary leadership, worship and preaching, pastoral care, and ministry oversight. He provides visionary leadership by equipping the body of Christ for day-to-day ministry and coordinates outreach around the corner and across the world.

The Murrays are all actively involved in the church family and in the community of Plano.  Larry is a huge Texas Rangers fan and enjoys playing anything ending in -ball. DeeDee teaches 4th grade at Dooley Elementary in Plano.
