Pastor Lowell grew up in West Virginia and has lived in Berkeley County since 1992. He put his trust in Jesus Christ during his high school years and began experiencing spiritual growth and development through the discipleship of several key men in his early adult years. His spiritual journey has given him a great burden for evangelism and personal discipleship.
Lowell has earned a Bachelor’s Degree from West Virginia University in Mathematics and Secondary Education, a Masters of Biblical Ministry from Baptist Bible Seminary, and a Masters of Divinity from Liberty University. After teaching mathematics in Berkeley County for several years, Lowell served for 11 years in a variety of pastoral roles at Independent Bible Church in Martinsburg, WV, working primarily with families, couples, and teenagers.

Today, Lowell serves as the Lead Pastor of CenterPoint and is especially passionate about the accurate and compelling preaching and teaching of God’s Word and following Jesus’s call to invest his life in making disciples.
Lowell enjoys being married to his high school sweetheart and best friend, Nancy. Nancy also grew up in West Virginia and enjoys a ministry as a teacher at Spring Mills Middle School. Together, they have raised four amazing children: Jacob (and wife, Megan), Rachel (and husband, Neil, and daughter, Violet), Daniel (and wife, Ivy), and Anna. Lowell and Nancy enjoy almost any activity that includes the outdoors; however, golf, fishing, and hiking are their favorites.
