Troy Smith

Lead Pastor

Pastor Troy became Senior Pastor of NLC in January, 2021. Pastor Troy grew up in Bonne Terre MO and was raised in a Catholic home. At the age of 18 yrs old he married his wife, Yvette and gave his life to Christ at a Pentecostal Church.  Pastor Troy has been actively involved in an Assembly of God church since the time of his marriage and has been a Pastor for over 10 years.


Pastor Troy and Yvette have one son, TJ. In his spare time he enjoys golf, baseball and watching a good race on TV. He also enjoys spending time with his family and watching TJ play sports.


Pastor Troy’s vision for NLC is for it to be a beacon of hope to our Community, a place where God radically transforms lives. In a time where the world is divided, our prayer is for the Church to be a guiding light for the hurting and for God to make a difference in every life touched or impacted by NLC’s Ministry.
