Senior Pastor Anton Roos and his family are originally from South Africa where he grew up in a pastor’s home. After meeting a missions team from West Point Baptist Church in Rutherfordton, NC, they immigrated to the United States in December of 2003 so that Pastor Anton could continue his education and to serve the Lord wherever He might want to use them. Pastor Anton graduated from Fruitland Baptist Bible Institute in 2005, The Baptist Theological College of South Africa in 2008 and Covington Theological Seminary in 2008 (ThB) and 2009 (M.Min).
Pastor Anton is married to Lilani who is active in the worship and women’s ministries leadership at LLBC. They have three children, Tristan, Nicci and Danae. They live in the community of Bill’s Creek and are active throughout the local area.
The ministry of Pastor Anton is marked by his commitment to sound expository preaching, practical Bible application, a heart for community and discipleship and a balanced philosophy of ministry that embraces people from every age, background and stage of their spiritual walk. You will be blessed by the warmth and friendliness of a spiritual community that is used to welcoming many guests who are visiting the beautiful Lake Lure area and where many who live or have moved here choose to grow under the Biblical teaching and ministry of Pastor Roos.
