Nice To Meet You!

Hello, You!

I’m Angie Loughridge, coordinator for THRIVE, the Southern Missouri District Young Women’s Department. Welcome to my blog, where I'll be posting thoughts from time to time. I am thrilled to begin this journey with you, but first, here’s a little bit about myself!

I have had the pleasure of being a part of the Southern Missouri District all my life! Born in Harrisonville, Missouri, my entire life has been lived within a thirty mile radius. Thrilling, I know! The good thing is, I love to thrive where I am planted.

I married a Navy brat and we have been living the dream for the past 23 years. We have three wonderful children who have all made us so proud. I could go on…and on…and on! Our oldest son is an Evangel University graduate and is currently earning his Masters at EU while working with the Athletic Department. Our lovely daughter, Jordan is currently attending JRLC in Ozark and serving in ministry at James River Church in the area of worship, she also works for the General Council in the World Missions Department. Our youngest son, Jacob will be graduating high school this fall and joining his siblings in Springfield as a student at Evangel University.

My husband, Lance and I just celebrated 10 years as lead pastors at Victory Assembly in Adrian, Missouri. I also serve our church as a youth pastor, worship leader, and office manager. We love our congregation and the feeling is mutual! Prior to this we served in Butler at First Assembly for 8 years as youth pastors.

Serving under Sherry Welch, our District Women’s Director is so awesome! She has a real heart for women of all ages to grow in The Lord! I am so excited to be working closely with her to see this ministry THRIVE!!

I have made many friendships along this (almost) 20 year journey in the ministry and look forward to meeting you very soon!

Much love,
