Our Pastors


Larry Chute - Interim Pastor

Pastor Larry and Elaine were married in August of 1969 and began in ministry that same year.  They served in three churches in the Chicago suburbs over the next forty plus years.  They began ministry with IPM (Interim Pastor Ministries) in 2010 and have now served in seven churches in seven different states:  Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Florida, North Dakota, Kansas, and now Maryland.  They find great joy in helping churches walk through an Intentional Process to become stronger between Pastors.

The Chutes have three children (one daughter and two sons), ten grandchildren, and one great-grandchild (with another on the way).  There is no greater joy in their lives than to “watch their children walk in the truth!”  Their two sons are serving in evangelical churches.  One is serving as Executive Pastor in a large church in PA and the other as Worship Pastor in a very effective church in MD.
