Partner in the Antioch Initiative
Given our traditional understanding of the work of a preacher, it would not give you an accurate picture of Larry Krause to say that he has been the preacher of Kittanning church of Christ in Kittanning, PA for the last nineteen years. Larry Krause is not what Clarence McDowell calls a pastor-preacher. Larry is the 24/7 evangelist of Kittanning, PA. He has embraced the town of Kittanning. His evangelistic, soul-searching eye is on the town of Kittanning, not just the congregation where he preaches. His active field of endeavor is not, solely, the confines of the church building and member-visitation only. He and his wife, Diane, knock every door of Kittanning every year. In fact, believe it or not, Larry and Diane knocked doors on their honeymoon! Fanatical—absolutely, even to the point of being Pauline fanaticism! We need a revival of such fanaticism in the church today.
Larry is another partner in the Antioch Initiative—the vision of planting germinal congregations of the church of Christ in Northeastern Pennsylvania and, ultimately, all over the U.S.A. It is the vision of taking the nation back by taking Jesus to the nation. Larry has resolved to assist the evangelist of Sayre & Athens, PA as much as possible—planning periodic visits and working side by side with him in door-to-door evangelism. Larry lives two hundred and fifty miles southeast of Sayre & Athens, PA.
