Senior Pastor: Joe Lightfoot

My most significant roles include being the happy husband of Diane; the sometimes-proud owner of Louie (the wonder dog); and a loyal Cardinals fan. I am also excited to serve as Southwood’s Senior Pastor. After college, I experienced the business world in the areas of human resources management, financial services, and marketing. It was during that time I felt called into vocational ministry. I have a Master of Theology (Th.M.) in Pastoral Leadership from Dallas Theological Seminary and have witnessed God use both my education and experience in serving Him. My passion in ministry is helping followers of Jesus passionately pursue their relationship with Him.
