Laura Murphy

Lead Pastor |

As Lead Pastor at King's Way, Laura casts the vision for all areas of ministry and worship at the church. She loves getting to know the people at King's Way and their desire to connect in a variety of ways. She and her husband Patrick have a son in Kansas City, a daughter and son-in-law in St. Louis and a son in Chicago.  

What is your favorite part of your ministry?

My favorite is getting to do ministry with other people.  It's exciting to get to experience the life and work of the church with other people. I get pumped getting to experience God at work WITH someone else. 


What are your dreams for King’s Way?

My dream is to see this church become debt free while having vibrant ministries and passionate worship that will reach the unchurched and the nominally churched of Springfield.

What do you love to do in your spare time?

I love to cook and bake, spend time with my family and take long walks.
