Chris Lyons

Advisory Board Member

Chris Lyons has been serving at Bethany Green Lake as the Pastor of Children, Youth and Family Ministries since 2018.  His passion is supporting ministry that safely meets every young person wherever they are on their spiritual journey and helps him to take the next step in Christian faith, by supporting families to send faithful kids out into the world.  This also includes providing spaces for everyone to belong.  He has been serving churches in the Pacific Northwest since 1993. He earned his Doctor of Minister degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in 2016, with an emphasis on helping students transition from high school without graduating from their faith.  His wife, Lisa is a school nurse in Edmonds. They have five children (2 adopted) who are emerging adults, so the Lyons family feels like youth group all the time!
