ELDERS

Larry Dodge

Larry was born in 1960. He grew up in Algonac, where his family attended First Evangelical Lutheran Church. As a sophomore in high school, he began dating Debbie Benke. Her family attended the Algonac Church of Christ. Larry’s doctrinal curiosity and subsequent study had him eventually become a member of his then-girlfriend’s church. 

 

After graduating from CCS in Detroit with a BFA degree in 1983, he and Debbie were married and moved to Sterling Heights. They began attending Macomb Christian Church (a sister church of the Algonac Church of Christ). Through the years he has served as an Elder, Deacon, and has taught Sunday School.

  

Larry has three grown children, Amanda, Aaron, and Alissa and recently celebrated his 40th wedding anniversary 40th year of being an illustrator and photo re-toucher. He has also been an art professor at Macomb Community College.
