Senior Pastors Chris and Chelsey Larson
…grew up worlds apart, he in Alabama, and she in Texas. They both have served the church in many capacities through the years. Now, their ministry has emerged as one of lead pastors. With the future of NLF in their capable hands, the vision is clear – MAKE JESUS FAMOUS.
Pastor Chris is a compassionate people person whose energy comes from believing in a limitless God and seeing others succeed. Alabama football is his passion and it’s rumored that his blood flows Crimson Tide red. Pastor Chelsey has a strong desire to see people connect with the Lord through ministry and personal relations. She enjoys being the mother of three beautiful children Presley 9, Haven 7, and Houston 6 months and spending time with Chris. Shopping and spending time with her girlfriends make her happy.
Founding Pastors Layne and Pamela Dietz
Pastors Layne and Pamela founded NLF in 1994 with a vision to see the Kingdom of God come and His will be accomplished on earth as it is in Heaven. With a passion for the presence of Holy Spirit and a love for God’s people they have experienced the blessing of pastoring a transgenerational church for the past twenty-three years. Their love for all generations walking hand in hand as modeled by Joshua and Caleb is the heartbeat of NLF today. Their mandate to the Joshua generation has always been, “Our ceiling – your floor.”
Pastor Layne loves riding his Harley and Pamela is on staff at Resolute Health Hospital in New Braunfels as the Pastoral Care and Volunteer Coordinator. Their favorite thing to do is spend time with their three grandchildren.
