The Barn Leadership Team

"To prepare followers of Jesus for the work of serving."

The Barn is led by a “Senior Pastoral Team,” with each pastor having different areas of ministry. This team works in conjunction with the prayerful guidance of our eldership team. We also have one dedicated administrative staffer, and countless incredible volunteers who keep the church running smoothly!

Senior Pastor

Lynn graduated with a BA in English and went on to get a Master’s degree in Guidance Counseling and Agency Counseling. Lynn is married to Bruce and has 5 adult children and 10 grandchildren (want to see my photos?). Lynn loves studying the Bible and her dream would be to translate the whole Bible, but of course, you have to learn Hebrew and Greek!

What is your favorite Bible verse?
Eph. 2.10: For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

Greatest Passion?
To see people grow in God and become the people God always envisioned them to be. He has big plans for all of us! We are all God’s masterpieces. And out of that identity, good works flow easily towards others who are outside the church.
