Larry Lea

 Is Larry Lea still alive? - by Cresandra
Larry Lea Larry Lea was born in July 1951 is a former pastor and televangelist in Rockwall, Texas.

Biography and Career

As a teenager, Lea was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and was hospitalized at the age of 17 following a suicide attempt. It was there where he was converted to Christianity.

Shortly after his release, he attended Dallas Baptist University in 1972, where he met his first wife, Melva, and also attended the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth. They married in 1972, and Lea became the father of three children.

He became the youth pastor of Beverly Hills Baptist Church in Dallas, where the youth department shot up from 40 to 1,000. He left the seminary to become Dean of Theological and Spiritual Affairs at Oral Roberts University.

Following a stint as an itinerant preacher in the late 1970s, Lea was invited to pastor Church on the Rock in 1980 with 12 people in Rockwall, Texas, a suburb of Dallas. Within 5 years, the church had shot up to over 5,000. In 1986, Lea began to travel again, holding what he called "Prayer Clinics" and later, "Prayer Rallies" or "Prayer Breakthroughs".

Also, that year marked the beginning of Lea's television program, called Change Your Life. Also, that year, Lea released his first book, the best-seller Could You Not Tarry One Hour?, which was his teaching on The Lord's Prayer. He also began a partnership group where his partners were referred to as "Prayer Warriors". By 1991, 370,000 people had joined as partners.

In June 1990, Lea stepped aside as pastor to oversee Church on the Rock International, which was a group of churches that was called a "virtual denomination" according to Christianity Today.

Lea's ministry was heavily criticized by an assortment of gay-rights activists, pro-choice activists, and Wiccans led by Eric Pryor. On Halloween (the first night of the crusade), there was a massive protest leading to many who came to the Civic Auditorium having to come through a very hostile crowd outside.
