Pastor Drew Conover

Pastor Drew was a part of his home church, Spirit and Truth, in Oneonta, NY, since age 10. In 2007, he moved to the Utica area to help minister at Lifepoint, which was a daughter work of Spirit and Truth. 


He was ordained in 2010, and in 2011 became the pastor of Lifepoint. He is blessed to be able to labor alongside his wife Laurie, who is the worship leader. Pastor Drew and Laurie love youth ministry, and remain involved in the youth group, where they both have their roots. 


Whether its a Youth Camp, Bible study, Sunday morning service, or the grocery store, Pastor loves to share the life changing word of God and show its relevance in day to day life.
