Pastor Larry Orme goes home
to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ
After more than 20 years in pastoral ministry at Penn Valley Church, the Lord took Pastor Larry Orme home on April 21, 2017 following a more than yearlong battle with pancreatic cancer. He is sorely missed by his family, his church family, his friends, and the many, many people he ministered to over the years. We have fond memories of his gentle, caring nature, his radiant smile, and most of all, his servant’s heart and care for anyone he came in contact with. He impacted our church and our community in a myriad of ways.
His spiritual gifts as a prophet, pastor/shepherd, and an apostle were well utilized in his years in ministry and he enriched everyone whose path he crossed. His leadership among the campus pastors and elders will not easily be replaced, but we have faith, as Larry would say “that the Lord will provide for us – just in time.” Larry’s “just-in-time” theology was well know by those who served with him, listened to him preach, or sat under his leadership.
His legacy will be borne out in the family he loved, the church he served, the gospel-centered life he lived and the witness he was for Jesus. Larry knew that as the Apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the Philippian church, “…to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” And while we miss him, we understand what Paul wrote a couple of verses later when he declared, “I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far…” Larry is now united with Christ in heaven. Praise God!
