All stories start somewhere and the story of David and Liz Lawrence started when they met at a Christmas party in 2009. David had just moved back to Austin after a career in Christian publishing and Liz was on staff at a local church. We realized how much we have in common, including a call to the ministry at a young age, passion for the local church, and a desire to train and equip leaders globally.
It’s beautiful to see how God brought our histories together to create a strong future.
Liz was a successful small business owner while working on her Masters dual-degree in Professional Counseling and Community Counseling from Texas State University. She began a 10+year ministry career at a local Austin Church as an executive director for a large Christian Counseling center.
David’s call to the ministry came when he preached his first sermon at the age of 12 and since that time he hasn’t stopped. David graduated with a business degree from Oral Roberts University. His itinerant preaching ministry continued to grow through trusted relationships across the globe and has taken him to over 23 different nations. All the while, he continued to advance a successful career as an executive director for one of Austin’s largest youth leadership non-profit organizations serving 20,000 youth and 8,000 volunteers across central Texas and delivering high growth to fund development campaigns, membership enrollment, and volunteer recruitment – management. David is also part of John Maxwell’s leadership team of coaches and trainers and meets with individuals and teams on a regular basis to help them grow past their limitations and overcome unseen barriers.
New chapters continue to be added to their story with their non-profit, Renue, which serves as the vehicle for their global missions outreach initiatives. Then a few months later the family grew with the adoption of their puppy, Bauer.
David and Liz love their local community and believe that the local church is the hope of the world! For 15 years they have been anchored at Shoreline Church with Pastors Rob and Laura Koke. David and Liz are a fresh voice bringing life, strength, and hope to this generation.
