Meet Our Pastors
Layne and his wife Marsha have been leaders in recovery ministry for 19 years. Both Pastor Layne and Marsha will tell you that Christ-centered, 12 Step recovery saved their marriage. The Masons moved to Central Arkansas in 2007. They have attended First Assembly North Little Rock since then. Layne is an ordained minister in the Assemblies of God and a 2012 graduate of Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU). Pastor Layne is on staff and serves as the Recovery Pastor at First Assembly NLR. Marsha is the heart and soul of the Forever Free and makes sure that all areas of responsibility are covered every Tuesday night. Their passion is to show others that, with a Bible-based recovery program and Jesus Christ at the center, life change and FREEDOM is possible!
Layne and Marsha have four adult children (Gregory, Adam, Heather and Ashley) and eight grandchildren (Maddox, Joey, Alexis, Marlie, Greyson, Taytum, Ashlynne, and Hudson).
