Our Pastors

Sam and Becky Carr are the founders and pastors of Life United. Through Pastor Sam’s dynamic teaching of the Word of God and Becky’s passion to lead people to seek God through worship, they have ministered to people all over the world.

John and Sandi Welch have devoted their lives to leading people into an intimate, growing relationship with God. Their pursuit of God’s plan has taken them globally to Eastern Europe, and the UK, where they helped churches grow. The Welch’s spent many years serving as senior pastors where they led churches in the US towards healthy and growing futures.They share a passion for developing leaders that guide others into God’s plan. Pastor John communicates God’s truth in a manner that is practical and easy to understand.

In 2019 Sam and Becky welcomed the Welch’s to join them in leading Life United into it’s future. As the senior pastor, Sam continues to teach God’s word, guide LU and is a pastor to many pastors. John is the lead pastor and guides the campuses towards LU’s vision and values.
