Pulpit Supply:

Lynn has a passion for preaching the Good News, sharing her story, and encouraging people to lead transformed lives. Lynn engages the biblical narratives and provides a message that is applicable to today.

 Lynn is one of the most caring and charming people I know. She is a dynamite preacher who understands fully what a biblical sermon is and she always comes to the preaching moment well prepared. Her sermons are insightful, helpful, creative, dynamic, and engaging. I'd like to have her as my pastor so I could hear her preach every Sunday!

I am delighted to have gotten to know Lynn as her professor in the Doctor of Ministry program at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.  I am confident that Lynn will do well in any position God's Holy Spirit places her.  May the God who has called you and gifted you continue to use your teaching and preaching for the benefit of God's people and for the honor of our Savior!
