After leaving Campus Challenge, he served in pastoral ministry from 1983 to 1999.

At that point, he founded Midnight Cry Ministries as he began sharing a prophetic word to the Church in America. He became pastor of LIFE Church in October 2004. Pastor Bob writes and speaks on Bible prophecy in the light of current events and challenges the Church to prepare for the great end-time move of God.
 

Bob and Amanda have been married 47 years. They have two children and six grandchildren.

Joshua and Caitlyn Scanlan
Associate Pastors

Josh was raised in the Acadiana area where Jesus delivered him from a drugs and alcohol destructive lifestyle. Feeling the call to ministry, he attended attended and graduated from a Christian university with degrees in theology and missions. He worked for Teen Challenge in NYC for 18 months before returning to the Crowley, Louisiana area.

Here helped start and oversee a ministry for men coming out of a lifestyle similar to what he had been delivered from and help them become established as followers of Jesus Christ. After 5 years, he left the flourishing ministry sensing God was saying a change was coming.

Josh and Caitlyn were married in 2016 and have one child. Caitlyn is a teacher by vocation and is also overseeing the Women's Ministry at Life Church. They have recently joined the leadership team at Life Church, where their heart and passion is for people with the purpose of introducing them to Jesus Christ and the abundant life He offers everyone.

Justin and Tracey Guillory
Worship Pastor & Children's Pastor

Justin picked up his first instrument when he was eleven years old. His love for music and worshiping God through the arts only grew from there. He joined his first worship team in 1997 and now serves as our Worship Pastor. Justin and his wife Tracey, who serves as our Childrenʼs Pastor, have three beautiful children, who also serve on one or more of the ministry teams: Alexis, Alayna and Austin.

Tracey was raised in a ministerʼs home and therefore very involved in church life and ministry even as a young child. At a kidʼs camp, when she was just a girl, God called Tracey into a life of ministry. She now takes children to that same camp every summer as our Childrenʼs Pastor! Tracey and her husband Justin have been in ministry at Life Church since 2006.

Nick and Hannah Helton
Youth Pastors

Nickolas and Hannah Helton serve as our Youth Pastors. Together, they reside in Rayne, LA with their three children. Nickolas works full-time for Slemco. Hannah has such a compassionate heart for people, and works as a full-time Registered Nurse.

Nickolas began ministry first as a youth leader at Northside Assembly of God in Crowley, LA, and then served as Youth Pastor at Ile Des Cannes Worship Center in Lafayette, LA for two years. IDCWC was an inner-city church plant that thrived because of the selflessness of servants like the Heltons. After their time in the inner-city, Nickolas and Hannah were called back to Northside Assembly of God, and have served faithfully as Youth Leaders. Nickolas was also a member of the Worship Team.

Nickolas is currently pursuing his credentials with the Assemblies of God. He is studying at the Louisiana District Assemblies of God School of Ministry, and has plans to continue his education with LASOM. 

​Their vision for the next generation is to teach students how to walk in boldness and live an unashamed life for Christ, and to always preach the Truth and share the Gospel with all who are lost in the world. God has raised them up for such a time as this; to call a generation to worship God in Spirit and Truth, and to raise up young people who will boldly declare the Truth of God’s love in a lost world.
