The Rev. Dr. Larry Buxton has been an ordained United Methodist minister since 1975. He has extensive experience in leading non-profit, volunteer and religious organizations through times of stability and crisis. 

Larry’s second and most recent book, 30 Days with King David, is a character-focused study of the historical King of Israel.  He utilizes insights and examples from David’s life to inspire and guide leaders today. Leadership based in character and integrity will have the single greatest impact on families, business, government and congregational life.

As one public figure has said, “If you have integrity, nothing else matters.  If you don’t have integrity, nothing else matters.”
