RICHARD AND DARLENE MARCELLO

SENIOR MINISTERS

A decade ago Pastor Richard Marcello was called by the Lord to Tallahassee to lead Lifepoint Church to growth in holiness and to network with others in the body of Christ for our city’s revival. He believes the Church in Tallahassee is awakening to the Father’s heart for wholeness and purity. Richard is passionate about leading Lifepoint Church to become lovers of Jesus, lovers of people, and lovers of God, living moment-by-moment in His Presence.

For seventeen years Richard and his wife Darlene served as missionaries in Mexico where they established ten churches, one of which has 2,000 worshipers weekly. Functioning with a strong prophetic gifting, Richard ministers internationally in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Richard is an enthusiastic teacher who imparts life-changing truth through scripture.

Darlene desires to see marriages restored and women’s lives healed. She is an encourager who helps others walk in fulfillment and victory.

CRAIG MORAN

ADMINISTRATIVE PASTOR

For over ten years Craig has faithfully served as the hub of the Lifepoint wheel. He enjoys discovering a person’s passion and then finding a way to help them flourish in their gifts. Joy comes as he guides them to “become who they are” in God’s family. His heart for the local church is apparent as he serves tirelessly to minister Jesus’ love to each person.

Since his teenage years Craig, a gifted musician, has been involved with worship and he loves the many flavors of music created by God to open doors for lives to be changed.

Craig says, “To me the local church is a small group in the Kingdom of God. It is a place where each can put their boots on the ground and reach out to others. I see the picture that Ephesians 2:19-22 portrays as a model for the local church.”

Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit. We are built on the strong foundation of Jesus, being fitted together with purpose, and growing into a dwelling place of God in The Spirit.

Craig and Tona Moran have been married almost four decades and have two married daughters.
