Pastor Lyons is originally from Lousiville, Kentucky. At age 11 (1983) he trusted Christ as his Savior after viewing a film on the Rapture. 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 of the Bible. 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 camp week director, summer children's evangelism, and a 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 Church since December 2005.
He has dedicated himself to preaching and teaching through books of the Bible. In 2021, he reached a milestone in ministry when he completed the goal of preaching and teaching through the entire Bible while at DBC.
Each week 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 evenings we meet in the Family Center and a Power Point presentation accompanies the lesson. He currently teaches the Sunday Morning "Discover the Bible" class for various 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 after the service. They look forward to meeting you.
