  • We have a relaxed atmosphere with a mix of traditional and contemporary worship styles.

  • We are a friendly church who welcome all people. Fat, thin, short, tall, black, white or any color in between, dyed in the wool Christian or seeker; Everyone is someone here.

  • When you are here, you are family


Lead Pastor - Ken Lawson

Pastor Ken and his wife, Jeretta, are our fearless leaders who planted New Horizon's Church here in Houston, MO.  Ken, has a heart for teaching the Word of God and for missions.  He plays lead rhythm guitar in the church's Worship Band and plays a mean tuba.  Jeretta leads the Children's Ministry here at New Horizon.  She has a heart and burden to see young kids come to know the love of God.    

Associates - Joseph and Michele McConnell

Joseph and Pastor Michele are both graduates of Trevecca Nazarene University.  They were married in 2001 and are blessed with two boys, Levi and Sylas.  Michele has a heart for discipleship and is the best quizzer this writer has ever known. 

Joseph leads the worship and visitation ministry.  He is also the webmaster of this site.  Quiet and reserved, he is the artsy one of the group.  But don't let his aloofness fool you, he has a heart as big as he is.
