LEdward "Doc" Louviere and wife Patricia are founders of Circuit Rider, INC. While residents of Galliano, Louisiana they travel throughout the southern and eastern states and into many foreign countries doing the work of missions wherever they are needed. While Doc is an excellent preacher of the gospel they have realized that preaching is only one part of doing the work of missions. God has led them into many facets of ministry helps for needy people. They have founded youth ministries that affords young people to learn who feel called into missions work an opportunity to learn about missions in the mission field. They are taught by experienced missionaries and instructors the proper etiquette and attitudes while ministering in different areas of the country and foreign nations. This hands on experience is an unforgettable and valuable training tool for young ministers. They host annual women ministry sessions for ladies who are involved in the ministry. These retreats are refreshing and hailed very beneficial by the attendees. There is also a prison ministry, a film ministry and a motorcycle ministry affords teams of ministers to minister in all of those particular fields. This ministry is hands on and in the trenches with the gospel message. Doc and Pat covet the prayers of all Christians for this great work. They believe that prayer has opened the door and established all of these ministry outreaches. They also tell their congregations where they minister that is prayer that keeps the ministry moving forward.
