About the author Reverend Larry Hoxey

The Hoxey family ministers to diverse people from all ages, wages and stages. Larry and Cynthia are life partners in ministry as they demonstrate the joy of a spirit empowered relationship.

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). Larry’s leadership experience outside the church ranges from running a family business, teaching, consulting, and various for-profit and non-profit business administration & management. Reverend Larry has served as a spiritual leader in churches of various sizes, encompassing roles from solo pastor to Head of Staff, Interim Minister, etc.

Reverend Hoxey has an agile communication style that tailors a message to the needs of his audience. Larry brings God’s message alive through his engaging manner, an enthusiastic approach that both dramatizes and illustrates timeless spiritual principles in contemporary life.

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 a relevant and energized manner. Contrary to the stereotype, church and typical Sunday services needn’t be boring, dry and lifeless. Larry’s use of humor and historical anecdotes brings scripture alive in a way that challenges listeners to apply the messages to their daily lives.

Reverend Hoxey is active in his community. One of the more light-hearted demonstrations of Larry’s public engagement concerns an article published in a national magazine, The Atlantic Monthly.  Among other locals, Larry was interviewed about a community mascot known as Whittaker the turkey. Yes, a wild turkey became the subject of national attention after the bird’s demise in the local intersection which it delighted in occupying for over six months.

Here’s the link to the article about Whittaker:
