Justin Lyons to Become Conference President
Tom Lemon, President of the Mid-America Union, announced Thursday that Justin Lyons, vice president for administration of the Minnesota Conference, had been selected by the Conference Board to be the next president of the Minnesota Conference. Lyons replaces Ed Barnett, who is now serving as president of the Rocky Mountain Conference in Denver, Colorado.
Lyons has served as vice president for administration of the Minnesota Conference for three years. Before serving as vice president at the conference office, he served as trust director for four years. He has also pastored in 10 churches in Minnesota as well as serving in various churches in the Oregon and Washington Conferences.
Lyons has been married for 25 years in August to Carol Lyons. Carol is one of the office assistants for the Minnesota Conference. Their daughter, Karis, is in 5th grade at Southview Christian School and their son, John, is currently a senior at Maplewood Academy.
“The Lord has been blessing in Minnesota through good leadership and I wish to continue in the same upward direction,” Lyons said. With multiple endeavors having already begun with the North Star Camp renovations, distance education at Maplewood Academy, and a push for evangelism in the Twin Cities, Lyons is “excited for the future.” “I believe that the Lord is at work and we are going to see Him do great things”.
