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.
Terrell and Tara dreamed of planting a church where people could experience the life and transforming power of Jesus Christ; a place where there is a diverse body of believers from many nations, cultures, and backgrounds. We are a church family 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 are focused on building relationships among believers, reaching out to the non-churched, and meeting the needs of the community. 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 by the Holy Spirit to change the lives of those around us by repairing our broken world, relieving suffering and bringing healing and hope to our society.
