Al Larson enjoys following the Green Bay Packers, biking, hiking the mountains in Colorado, weight training, and going out for donuts with his grandchildren. He has been connecting with men in peer discipling relationships for over forty years while teaching physical education, coaching track, and working for NCR (Navigators Church Ministries) Corporation.
Since 1994, he has been serving with The Navigators Church Discipleship Ministry and giving leadership to small groups and men’s ministries. In September 2009, Al’s life took an unexpected turn when his wife of 46 years, Shirlee, passed away suddenly. About a year later God in his incredible goodness connected him with a wonderful woman by the name of Kim Gautier. Kim had been a widow for 22 years. They were married March 26, 2011 by Kim’s oldest son and pastor Derald. Al is currently contributing to the development of men dangerous for God by writing and meeting with men and pastors who God is bringing into his life. He is writing “Kick-start: A Life Planning Tool to Navigate What’s Next.”
