Since leaving the full-time pastoral ministry in 2002 to teach at Truett Seminary, Price has served in 19 pastoral interims (one for 23 months and twice in one church).

For two years, Lu and Levi ran the light and sound for Baylor Religious Hour. It was a really great experience. They met a lot of great folks and learned a lot about the speakers and the choir during that time. Lu and Levi were hometown sweethearts and married after their second year at Baylor.
