The key to any thriving church is a leadership team that are passionate about ministry and the vision.  At Living Word Outreach, we have gathered a staff that desires to see people reach their destiny as well as see transformation in the city of Wichita by the power of the Holy Spirit.


Senior Pastors Matthew and Dena Hudson

Matthew and Dena Hudson have been married for 39 years.  They are apostolic Pastors with a heart for the city of Wichita.  They have labored in the city since 1988 and have a desire to see this city transformed for the Kingdom of God.  Matthew and Dena have been married for 39 years and have 2 grown children; Melissa (husband Jared Case) and Matthew.


Bread of Life Director

Donna  Pinaire is the director of Bread of Life. She has served in that capacity since 2006. 


"I consider it a privilege to be used by The Lord as director at Bread of Life. To minister life to people by giving them hope and encouragement by providing food and clothing is wonderful but to see miracles happen, through answered prayers is out of this world! When people's lives are changed the joy is indescribable."


Donna has been married to Fred for nearly 40 years and they have 5 grown children and 12 grandchildren. 



Praise & Worship Leader

Hey, my name is Shane Raymer.  I started playing music at the age of 10 and started leading worship at the age of 14. I’ve been in on a few studio recording sessions, and was a member of the Nashville Musicians Union for three years. My favorite thing to do now days is study theology and read the Bible. I love reading books by the great hero’s of the faith, and the great theologians as well.
