Larry Sykora

After receiving his Master of Divinity degree and then doing post graduate work at the University of Edinburgh, Larry has spent 45 years in ministry.  As founding pastor of a thriving church in the Houston area, he saw his congregation excel in growth and personal stewardship.  In 1985, after 17 years in the “local church”, Larry sensed his calling taking a new direction and has spent the past 30 years consulting with churches in the ministry of stewardship.  He has led over 200 projects in 21 states which include churches of most denominations and many non denominational churches.  His primary ministry is coaching churches through both annual giving and capital needs.
