LaGaye MacDowall

Dir. of Church Administration

LaGaye and her husband Darryl have been part of the River Oak Church family since 2008. LaGaye is a pastor’s daughter from NC and Darryl is a chiropractor from upstate NY. They met at Liberty University where she completed her Master of Arts degree in Counseling after her time at Radford University and Georgia State. LaGaye has had the privilege to lead and serve in various roles of administration and development in Christian education, crisis pregnancy centers and several other faith-based, non-profit organizations and ministries. Over the last 26 years, the Lord allowed her the opportunity to develop and lead numerous and varied teams where He grew in her heart a love and passion for individuals to embrace the healing, liberty and joy that is found in a life changed by following Jesus Christ and to help them discover, grow and serve in their area of gifting. LaGaye and Darryl (our Men’s Ministry Team Coach) have three children Alexsa (a missionary to the Middle East with e3 Ministries), Tyler (a college sophomore with a love for physics, history and the classical languages) and Logan (a high school sophomore who can most always be found with friends, her horse and two dogs). They are a family who intentionally seeks to embrace a life of adventure, gratitude, and service.
