Live Oak Church was started by founding pastor Pat Howell and a few people desiring to reach the Navarre area with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We were assisted in this journey by Santa Rosa Shores Baptist Church in Gulf Breeze.  We launched on July 4th, 1999 under a pavilion at the recreation center of Holly By the Sea.  We met at the conference center at the Days Inn and West Navarre Elementary School before moving to our current location  on East Bay Blvd in 2003.  In 2011, we completed construction on our current worship center.  Live Oak Church has been blessed to see many people come through our doors, be discipled, and move to other parts of our nation to disciple others.  Yet others have been able to stay and continue on in this journey of faith as we learn to be the body of Christ in Navarre.
