JOSH + TORI
Both born and raised in St. Louis, we have always had a great love for this city. After attending ministry school in Los Angeles, we felt God calling us back to help build and serve LifeChurch in 2005. After many years of serving in various roles, we are now leading as Senior Pastors. Our love for this church runs deep, and we carry this call with honor and awe. God has amazed us every step of the way as we trust Him fully. We’ve been married since 2000 and have four amazing children— Miles, Lila, Ansley + Monroe.
Our highest calling of ministry is to our marriage, and to our kids— and it is an adventure! We’ll gladly help you see our imperfections to remind you— family is messy and beautiful and worth it. We believe the church is the same. It should be a place where people are welcomed and embraced—no matter what.
We also believe it extends beyond these four walls and that the true church, the body of Christ, is the people within it. It is our prayer that together, we can be an echo of hope to the world around us.
We’re not constrained by rules or religion— we’re just passionate about Jesus and His relentless love. Our hearts beat for people— for healing and growth and victory. That only comes by true relationship with Jesus. So at LifeChurch, He’s the center of everything.
We hope you’ll come and encounter Him here and feel seen and loved.
RICK + DONNA
LIFECHURCH was founded in 1980, after God gave a young man a great vision to reach this city. It began under the leadership of Pastors Rick + Donna and that vision was carried out for 35 faithful years. In this new season, Pastors Rick + Donna travel both nationally and abroad, encouraging and equipping leaders and pastors around the world.
