Bro. Larry Renfro
I was born in Navasota, TX in 1962. I was raised in a God loving family. Many of my family members were ministers including my grandfather, dad, several uncles, cousins, brother, and brother-in-law all serving in pastoral ministry. My dad organized a BMA Baptist Church in Navasota, TX. I grew up leading the music, after the age of 10 when I accepted the Lord, at Bethel Baptist Church in Navasota, TX. On May 7, 1982 I accepted the call to ministry and was licensed to preach by Bethel Baptist Church, Navasota, TX. After graduating high school in Navasota, TX I attended Jacksonville College and earned an Associate’s Degree. I attended Jacksonville Theological Seminary in religious education, but felt led to pursue the Music Ministry. I filled in for area churches until I took an interim position as Music Director for Memorial Baptist Church in Rusk, TX for 2 years. After a short break God led me to Afton Grove Baptist Church and in the fall of 2009 I accepted an interim position with the church followed by a permanent position in January, 2010. I feel the Lord has given me a gift and I want to use it for His glory.
I was ordained as a Deacon of Afton Grove Baptist Church on January 12, 2012 and currently serve on the Deacon Board.
In June of 1985, I met my soul mate Patty Mayo, while working at Discount City in Jacksonville, TX, and married her on September 12, 1986 at Enterprise Baptist Church in Jacksonville. I have one son Wayne Renfro born in 1991. I have lived in the Rusk/Jacksonville area since 1981.
I enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, garage sales, vacationing, and most of all leading God’s people in worship and music.
I would like to welcome you to Afton Grove Baptist Church and I can always use extra voices in our choir and church. If there is any way I can help you in your worship or service for the Lord I am here.
