Executive Council Candidate - Lawrence Price

Lawrence Price has been happily married to Dorian Price for almost 17 years. They have two sons: Lawrence III (age 14) and Xavier (age 12).

Lawrence has been in ministry for over 20 years. He was licensed into the preaching ministry in 2000 and ordained in 2008. Within the ministry, Lawrence has served in several leadership roles. Most notably, he has served as the Interim Pastor of the Meadowland Baptist Church in Valley Station, KY, the Executive Pastor of Straight Gate Baptist Church in Hutto, TX, and the Ministry Director of North Garland Baptist Fellowship in Garland, TX.

Lawrence is a Human Resources Executive with Stanley Black & Decker. His expertise is in leadership development, talent management, and organizational change. He has a B.S. in Sociology from West Point, an M.S. in Organizational Behavior, and a Ph.D. in Industrial-Organizational Psychology. Additionally, Lawrence is also an Army veteran, where he served tours in Korea and Iraq. 

At The Mount, Lawrence and his family have been active. Lawrence has worked with our Young Adults Ministry and our Care Groups. His wife, Dorian, has worked with our children’s ministry, and his sons are junior ushers. 

Lawrence is grateful to be a member of The Mount. He strives to be a servant-leader and to minister within our Church family.   There are many places in Scripture that he favors. However, one verse, in particular, has resonated with him over the years. When Joshua needed encouragement from the Lord, God told him, “Arise and be bold and courageous.”  It’s a word of encouragement that has kept him through many seasons of his life.
