Pastor Lawrence Morris was born in Alexandria, Virginia. He spent his childhood serving at the Lighthouse Baptist Church in Alexandria, Virginia, pastored by Philip Bishop. Pastor Morris met his wife, Catrina, while at Lighthouse. It was at this church that Lawrence and Catrina were married in 2008, and Lawrence was ordained in December 2014.
The Morris family completed Bible college by December 2011, and God began working in their lives. In 2012, Lawrence felt burdened by God to move West and begin a new work for Him. By February 1, 2013, the Morris family was in Northwest Washington, eager to plant their roots. Two years were spent preparing the start of a brand new church in the Renton area. By God’s grace, Lighthouse Baptist Church of Renton was started.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
