Pastor Thomas and Laverne Galloway began the lineage that would begin Word of Life Church. After pastoring five churches in the North Mississippi region, they retired from pastoring and took over a family business. Whenever their son Tommy talked about beginning a new church in Tupelo, they were the first to commit. And committed they are! Affectionately called by all their Grandparent names, Meme and Pop, they are no doubt the pillar of our church.
Monthly Pop brings his wisdom and solid Bible knowledge to the Wednesday night audience. Meme is a favorite to all and has a passion to help in any area she is needed. They feel blessed being able to be still serving in ministry with their son as Senior Pastor. Word of Life is blessed with two generations on our team and Meme and Pop are not only the lineage, that are the legacy.
