Lynn began his ministry with Fairfield in 2010. He is a graduate of Lincoln Christian University earning a Bachelor’s degree and a Master of Divinity. Lynn, and his wife Sandi have five adult children: Joe, Landon, Josh, Caleb, Annie along with two grandsons. Having served in a wide variety of roles Lynn has experience in virtually every area of the church. One of the many rewards of preaching is watching the light come on for people, or to hear someone say “I get it.” In addition to hanging out with their family, Lynn & Sandi have many interests and not enough time to enjoy them all. They enjoy boating, the theater, Lynn enjoys snow skiing, they love to travel, and enjoy getting together with friends.
