Larry began his evangelistic and missionary ministry during his years as pastor and director of a rural Kentucky parish of 18 churches. For more than 31 years he has preached revivals, camp meetings and missionary services throughout the United States. His passion for evangelism has been fueled by a vision God gave him in Managua, Nicaragua following the devastating earthquake there in 1972. While driving back to the U.S. from Panama, Larry spent a night in Managua. The desperate plight of the people there gave him a desire to minister God's love and peace to people everywhere.

Larry has served on the Board of Directors of Cattle for Christ International since it was founded in June 2001. His years of experience as a local pastor and his 31 years of missionary experience and leading mission trips have made Larry an invaluable asset, facilitator and adviser to the Cattle for Christ ministry. His leadership and passion for missions and evangelism, especially among the un-reached peoples, has been a driving force to keep us focused and energized.

He frequently leads servant teams to Latin America, assisting with leadership development, church planting, evangelism and children's ministries. Larry's fluency in Spanish greatly enhances his ability to establish relationships and lead the ministries we fund in Spanish speaking countries.  For the last 29 years, Larry has been on staff with GO InterNational, a Cattle for Christ ministry partner located in Wilmore, KY. From 1986 until May 2007 he served as President of GO. He and his wife Jenny live in Wilmore, KY. The Cochran's have three children and eight grandchildren.
