Rev. Lyle Truitt, Pastor

Following the retirement of our previous pastor, Rev. Truitt came to Living Waters in November 2016 as our Interim Pastor.  He is a second career pastor and graduated from Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in Columbia, South Carolina, where he earned a Masters of Theology Degree.  He has served congregations in Florida since 2000, retiring from his last church in January 2016.

Pastor Truitt is originally from Linton, Indiana and, due to his father’s occupation, the family moved several times, and eventually to Wyoming.  Rev. Truitt earned his B.A. degree in Political Science at the University of Wyoming.  While in college, he met his future wife, Loni. The Truitts celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary earlier this year.

After they married, they lived in the Denver area for their first 14 years together.  His work took them to Washington D.C. and later to Florida.  It was in Coral Springs that God called him to ordained ministry.

Pastor Truitt brings a fresh approach to worship and to his messages which engage, energize and inspire.  He is a blessing to Living Waters and to all who worship with us.

One of Pastor Truitt’s favorite Bible passages is 2 Corinthians 5: 17-18

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.  All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.”
