Rev. Larry Gallaher
Rev. Larry Gallaher and his wife Cindy have resided in West Chester the past 11 years. Larry is retired from Farmer’s Insurance after 35 years of dedication to excellent customer service. His wife Cindy is a claims representative for Cincinnati Financial Services. They have 2 sons – Ryan (22) and Carson (20). A third son, Matt, went to be with our Heavenly Father in 1993. Larry jokingly shares they are the proud parents of a 10 year old neurotic German Shepherd named Baron.
Larry graduated from Mid-American Nazarene University with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Theology. He attended the Nazarene Theological Seminary for one year. Larry has extensive leadership and management from his experience at Farmers Insurance. He attended the UMC Licensing School in 2013 completing the requirements of the United Methodist Church and completed the West Ohio Conference Clergy Ethics Training.
Larry’s ministry journey began at the early age of seven when he accepted Christ Jesus as his personal Savior. God called him to ministry at 18, yet it took a few years for Larry to answer the call. Larry has been involved in many different aspects of the church including the Pastor of the Auburn, IL Church of the Nazarene (1974-77) and recently served as the Director of Care Ministries at Cornerstone UMC in Liberty Township.
