Live True – David and Caron Loveless
Caron Loveless is a bestselling author, artist and teacher. She is a compassionate, intuitive coach, a certified Enneagram specialist and for over 25 years she used her strategic, leadership, and artistic gifts to serve on the executive staff at Discovery Church, Orlando, FL. She is a conference speaker and retreat leader with a passion to see women, couples and leaders identify the hidden, internal issues that hinder them from experiencing the maximum joy, grace and fulfillment God has available for them.
David Loveless is a leadership coach, pastor to pastors and strategic, spiritual advisor to churches and businesses, and has done this in over 50 countries. He served as founding pastor of Discovery Church, Orlando, Fl for 29 years. During that time Discovery was identified in Dr. John Vaughn’s book as one of “America’s Most Influential Churches “ and was named as one of the Fastest Growing U.S. Churches in the 21stCentury by Outreach Magazine.
In the midst of enormous personal, family, and professional success, David has also experienced devastating failure. Through rigorous personal work, prayer, and with the help of his wife, faithful friends and excellent counselors, the consequences of that experience have become his most life-defining teacher.
It is from this context of the highest high’s and the lowest low’s and with life-altering breakthroughs that sustain them today, David and his wife, Caron, feel privileged to offer their seasoned wisdom, experience, and transformational tools.
David and Caron are parents of three adult sons who have blessed them with seven grandchildren.
