was born in  Alexandria, La. and lived his early life there. As a teenager he became a born again christian in a little country church in Hineston, La. just west of Alexandria in the spring of 1984. A mere 6 months later, God began to deal with his heart about preaching the gospel. In 1987 he married Gina S James, also from Alexandria.

They have two sons, Larry L Jinks III and Stephen J Jinks who reside in Orlando, Florida. In 1989, after much conviction, he surrendered his life to the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Since that time, he has pastored churches in La. and Fl. Pastor Larry has many interests, some of which are golfing, reading, motorcycles, fishing and anything outdoors. But his passion has always been introducing people to the Lord Jesus Christ and seeing their lives transformed. On March 30th of 2011 he accepted the call of First Baptist Church of St. James City, Florida to be their pastor. He has a desire to see First Baptist be a church that reflects Philippians 2:3,4. "Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others".

Becoming a church that "reaches in" to one another as the family of God, and "reaches out" to the lost so that they might know the love and peace of Christ and become part of the family of God is his goal for First Baptist! He believes the only way to accomplish this is to take our eyes off of our "selves" and put them on "others" and their needs.
