Poncho (BTh ’02) and Lora (BTh ’02) Lowder are about to embark on the journey of a lifetime as the Lead Pastors of Planetshakers Austin. From their days serving as dorm leaders back in 2001 until now, pioneering, building and innovating have been in Poncho and Lora’s heart. Their kick-off service will be in September with a heart to “empower generations to win generations.”
