Terrell Taylor is the founding and lead pastor of Live Free Church. He has been serving in ministry since the age of twelve where he began playing the piano for his father’s church in Reno, NV. Upon graduating from seminary, Terrell became a full-time worship pastor (1997-2012) where he served on staff in the Baptist, Assembly of God, Pentecostal, and nondenominational churches with attendance of 500 to 5,000 members. He has ministered extensively throughout the U.S. and several countries around the world as an accomplished speaker, singer, & musician.
Pastor Taylor holds degrees in both music (B.A.) & theology (M. Div.), and has a deep passion for leading people into a deeper knowledge of Jesus Christ. He co-founded TNT Ministries Inc. with his wife Tara in 1999, which is their evangelistic ministry and home to several of Terrell’s musical recordings. He also founded Upper Room Productions, a music production company that provides ministry direction for upcoming and established artists.
Terrell and his wife Tara have three children and live in Lawrenceville, Georgia.
Our Pastor’s Wife
Tara Taylor has a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a master’s degree in Professional Counseling. She has a heart to see people come to a fuller knowledge of who God is and who they are in Christ. Tara has ministered alongside her husband since they were married in 1997. Mrs. Taylor is a gifted communicator who has taught in conferences, churches, and small groups. She believes the church should be a place where people are free to love God and build healthy relationships.
Tara has ministered around the world and in the U.S., cross culturally and across denominational lines. She is passionate about her Lord, her family, and her ministry. She is the proud mom of Trevor, Travis, and Trenton, and is excited about what God is doing through Live Free Church.
The Taylors dreamed of planting a church where people could experience the life and freedom of Jesus Christ; where there is a diverse body of believers from many nations, cultures, and backgrounds. We are a life-giving church where we are unified by our love for Jesus and His love for us. Our story is about people of faith serving one another as we rely upon the transforming power of the Holy Spirit.
LIVE FREE CHURCH engages in dynamic corporate worship, celebrating the freedom we have in Jesus Christ. We encourage one another to live lives of personal devotion as we celebrate the mission of the family. We seek first God’s Kingdom, and impact our present day culture with the righteousness of God. As we walk in the newness of life, we are empowered to change the lives of those around us by repairing our broken world, relieving suffering and bringing healing and hope to our society.
With the help of our Launch Team (those who helped us see this dream become a reality), Live Free Church was birthed on Sunday September 15, 2013 with almost 200 people in attendance.
Pastor Terrell is focused on building relationships among believers, reaching out to the non-churched, and meeting the needs of the community. The life-giving message of the Gospel, the passion and joy of Sunday Celebrations, and the warmth and friendliness of Live Free Church will indeed make a difference in Grayson and Lawrenceville, Georgia.
We invite you to attend our 10:30 AM Sunday service and see for yourself how exciting and life changing church can be!
Every church needs to have a purpose statement that answers the question, “why do we exist?” At Live Free Church, our purpose is the guiding factor by which we filter every idea and plan of action.
Our purpose at Live Free Church is summarized in a single statement:
“Empowering people to live a life of freedom through Jesus Christ.”
Our statement of purpose is based on two scriptural insights concerning Jesus:
The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. (Luke 4:18-19)
If the Son gives you freedom, you are free! (John 8:36)
Live Free Church exists:
- To worship God with passionate expression.
- To share the Good News of Jesus with others.
- To connect with other believers in meaningful relationships.
- To empower leaders to fulfill their God-given destiny.
- To prepare disciples to impact present day culture.
