Pastor Stephen Aguillard was called into the ministry at an early age, but never responded to the call. After graduating from Destrehen High School in Destrehan, LA, he enrolled in Southeastern University in Hammond, LA to pursue a degree in Psychology. In his junior year at Southeastern, he had a supernatural experience with the Lord. The Lord reminded him of his call to preach. After his experience with the Lord, he immediately responded to the call to preach; quit school and enrolled in Gulf States Bible College where he received a degree in Pastoral Ministry. Upon graduation, he and his wife Laura became the full-time Youth Pastors of LHC (formerly Reserve Christian Church), which was pastored by his father, Rod Aguillard, where they served for eight years.
In March of 2007, Rod Aguillard retired as Senior Pastor of LHC and the mantle of leadership was passed to his son, Stephen. Stephen and Laura love pastoring LHC and are passionate about their call to reach the River Region and the world with Christ’s message of hope and healing.
Stephen Aguillard and his wife Laura have five children and live in LaPlace, LA.
