Meet Our Staff
Pastor – Dr. Larry Toney, Supply Pastor
Dr. Toney or Pastor Larry has been with Third Church as its Supply Pastor since December 2019. He holds graduate degrees in history from Duquesne University, in pastoral counseling from New York Theological Seminary, and in mental health counseling from Old Dominion University. His Doctor of Ministry degree is from Union Presbyterian Seminary.
He is a retired chaplain from the US Army and deployed three times into combat with Special Forces and Airborne units. Most recently he completed a year-long internship with the Virginia Department of Corrections in their Department of Psychology providing for the mental health needs of those who are incarcerated.
As a preschooler, Pastor Larry lived in Norfolk when his father, who retired from the Navy, was stationed in the city. He and his wife, Peggy, who is a Registered Nurse, have two children and three grandchildren. Pastor Larry enjoys counseling, bike riding, hiking, spending time with his family and church family, and harassing people he likes. He says he learned to harass people he likes in the Army. It’s easiest to reach him by email or text message. He loves people and wants them to know Jesus like he does.
