Our Guests and Speakers
Born and raised in southern Indiana, Dr. LaGrange lettered in basketball, track, tennis, and cross-country at Washington Catholic High School graduating in the top ten in his class. He then went on to attend Marian College in Indianapolis majoring in psychology. While at Marian, he played on the collegiate basketball and tennis teams and served as the president of the student body. After graduating cum laude, he went on to St. Louis University where he studied clinical psychology, earning a Master of Science Degree with distinction in 1992. He completed his doctorate at Purdue University in clinical psychology in 1996.
Dr. LaGrange came to Texas in 2003 after being called into full-time ministry at Highland Meadows Christian Church. Shortly after arriving, he was asked to oversee the pastoral care ministries at the church that includes pastoral counseling, Stephen Ministry, and Celebrate Recovery. Over the past 10 years, he saw amazing growth in these relational ministries that resulted in the need to add additional staff, ultimately leading him to launch His Story as a stand-alone ministry in 2011.
Outside of His Story, Dr. LaGrange served for 7 years as the chair of psychology at Dallas Christian College and continues to teach life coaching courses as an adjunct professor. He is active in his church and several mission programs. He has led or participated in sports, educational, and construction trips to Poland and Mexico. During his career, he has served on the Board of Trustees at GRACE
He is devoted to his beautiful wife of 25+ years, Melissa, and is actively involved with his children, Lucas and Ellie. He is an active sports enthusiast and loves reading, cooking, traveling, and equipping leaders to fulfill their calling.

The Admin Conference is designed as an opportunity for administrative assistants to come together for learning, inspiration and connection. While the focus is primarily on large church senior pastor and executive assistants, we recognize the similarity in needs and challenges faced by admins in roles that support ministry areas with large breadth and depth. Our main sessions are typically universal and we provide breakout sessions that cater to variables such as church size or staff position.
Serving the church in an administrative role is no small task—so we want to give you a BIG thanks. While your work is largely behind the scenes, we want to put YOU in the spotlight!
Learn from several well known Admin Assistants from around the world that have been in your shoes and can help shed some light on how to navigate some of the unknown.
Find encouragement, camaraderie, and a spark of new energy for your church position. Spending this conference with admins, you will sharpen each other and build each other up.
