Our   Pastors

Sam & Becky Carr

Sam and Becky 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.


Author of several books, Pastor Sam has always challenged and equipped others to face obstacles in life with faith and hope. His teaching inspires his congregation and others worldwide to embrace life with purpose and passion — realizing and fulfilling the plans God has for them.


With a growing church and focused vision, they continue to hold forth the word of life without compromise. Every week Pastor Carr preaches the word with clarity and boldness, equipping the church to be LifeGivers to the world around them. With Becky serving as the worship leader for the past 30 years, they flow together every service as a ministry team, touching lives, changing hearts, and leading the church into the presence of God.


Sam and Becky have been married for over 50 years, and have 3 kids, two son-in-laws, one daughter-in-law, two grand-daughters, and 2 grandsons. Their desire is to reach out to you and your family through teaching, worship, and prayer enabling you to have a personal relationship with God that brings restoration and peace for walking out everyday life with victory.
