Landon Dowden

Landon Dowden is lead pastor of The Church at Trace Crossing in Tupelo, Mississippi.

With the firm belief that the Gospel is the only hope for aligning our lives with God’s Word, Landon is firmly committed to verse by verse exposition of the Bible, because “nothing is better for God’s people than God’s Word.” Landon yielded his own life to Christ at the age of eight while growing up in Louisiana. After finishing with a Bachelor’s degree from Louisiana State University, Landon furthered his studies with three graduate-level degrees (Master of Divinity, Master of Theology and Doctorate of Philosophy) at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in New Orleans, LA.

He is married to Tara and father to Arabella, Adalaide, Adoniram & Alastair. Leading and shepherding his family is a great priority to Landon, as is making disciples through preaching, mentoring, biblical counseling, and through living life together in the power of the Gospel.

Some of Landon’s hidden talents are humming and beatboxing simultaneously, rapping part of Psalm 23 in Hebrew, being a national record holder for Jump Rope for Heart, and still being able to remember the “cheat code” to Contra on Nintendo.
