A Florida native and preacher’s kid, Lamar grew up in church watching his parents minister from early childhood. Lamar moved around the Southeast, living in Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Kentucky before settling back in Florida. His family moved to Sarasota in 1989 to form The Rock of Sarasota where Lamar served as the worship pastor for 20 years. Lamar served at a local church as worship pastor for another 5 years before making the move to start Remnant Church of Sarasota alongside Pastor Frank Burns. Lamar’s love of music and technology are what drives him to push the church into areas that allow the local body to reach the world through the internet. Lamar is bi-vocational and has owned and run a web/software development company since the late 90’s. Lamar and his wife, Diane, were married in 1992 and have 3 children; Kaity (22), Colton (16) and Daniel (9).
