Meet our Pastor
Rev. Landon Horton
I was born in Fort Worth, Texas on May 13, 1967, but I grew up in Rock Hill, South Carolina. I consider myself a South Carolinian but love the fact that I can say I was born in Texas!
I have attended church all of my life. My dad was a Pastor, so I started attending church nine months before I was born. However, I did not become a Christian until I was six years old. It was then when I realized God loved me so much that he sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for my sins and that if I believed in Him, I could have a personal relationship with God forever! So I committed my life to following Jesus and was baptized one month before my seventh birthday.
After graduating from Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, I returned to Fort Worth where I completed my education at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary to prepare for the ministry.
In 2001, I married the greatest gift God has given me after my salvation – my wife Starr. Today, we are blessed with two children, Abby and Landon, Jr. What a joy! I so much enjoy the time we spend together. We enjoy vacationing, seeing movies, playing sports, reading, and serving God just to name a few.
I have been in full-time Christian ministry for over twenty years serving in various roles.
Today, I serve as Pastor of Neighborhood Church in Huntersville, North Carolina. I am excited and blessed to serve in this new church with some great people who are just like me – people who are looking for meaning and purpose in their lives and who believe by faith that the answer is found in a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. It is an exciting and dynamic life that challenges us to see the whole world as our neighborhood and consider every person our neighbor.
I invite you to visit the Neighborhood.
I would love the opportunity to get to know you and to introduce you to people just like you and me.
Most important, I would love to share with you how you can have a personal relationship with God and discover your purpose in life.
