Loretta LaTourette

Community Pastor

My name is Loretta, and my husband is Dave. We have been serving the Lord and our home church in Bridgeton, New Jersey since 1999 in various areas of ministry. It has been a true blessing to serve together as a family, and one of the highlights in our ministry has been the opportunity to go on many mission trips and witness trips, both individually and as a family.

We are proud parents to two grown children, Rachel and Zed. Our journey took a significant turn in November 2008 when I transitioned from the church office to a full-time position at the Bridge Compassionate Ministry. It was a calling that I couldn't ignore, and it brought a new sense of purpose to my life and service.

In 2015, during the District Assembly, God confirmed my call to pastoral and compassionate ministries. It happened through a powerful message preached by Dr. J.K. Warrick, which redirected my journey and gave me even greater clarity about my purpose. From there I served as the Director of the Bridge Compassionate Ministry till early 2023 and as the Community Pastor through the Bridgeton Church of the Nazarene.

I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities I have been given and the people I have been able to help. I am excited about the future and the exciting days that lie ahead in my ministry. Serving the Lord and the community brings me immense joy and fulfillment, and I look forward to continuing this meaningful work.
