Andrew B. Lyons
Pastor Lyons is originally from Louisville, Kentucky. At age 11 (1983) he trusted Christ as his Savior after viewing a film on the Second Coming. It was during his senior year at college that the Lord called him to preach.
He met his wife, Rebecca, while assisting with Kid's Krusades in Bowling Green, Kentucky. They were married on May 18, 2002.
He is a graduate of Crown College. After graduation he served as an Assistant Pastor in Louisville, Kentucky for ten years. There his ministry involvement included children's ministry director, assistant transportation director, junior week camp director, summer children's evangelism, and Bible teacher at the college. He then served as pastor for nearly two years in South Carolina. He has been serving as pastor of Decatur Baptist since December 2005.
He has made it a life long goal of preaching and teaching through the books of the Bible. He strives to make each message or lesson clear, simple, and relevant to challenge you in your relationship with the Lord, spiritual growth, and daily life. On Wednesday nights we meet in the family center and a power point presentation accompanies the lesson. He currently leads the Sunday Morning "Forward 3:14" small group Bible Study for College and Career Ages. We invite you to come and discover God's Word with us.
Pastor Lyons and Rebecca will be available at the back door of the auditorium on Sunday mornings.
