Encounter Life Church Staff

Billy Levengood, Pastor

Billy was born in Fort Lauderdale, FL. When he was young, he and his family moved to Tennessee. Billy has a Master’s Degree in Biblical Counseling. That’s a fancy way of saying, “How to be a godly friend”. In 2010, Billy was called to plant Encounter Life Church. Billy, his wife, Jodi, and their 6 kids are excited to be serving at Encounter Life.

Joel is a member of the elder team and he also leads worship with his wife, Cynthia, each Sunday morning. Whether on the stage or having a cup of coffee, Joel enjoys serving Jesus!
