Pastor Dan Lyons became the pastor of Morris Chapel in the summer of 2012. A native of New York state, his family migrated south seeking a better standard of living when he was a boy. He committed his life to following Jesus as a high school senior while on a church retreat at Camp Tekoa in Hendersonville, NC. Two years later Dan answered the Lord’s call to full-time ministry. He is a graduate of Appalachian State University (History), has a Masters of Divinity from The Divinity School at Duke University, and is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church.
Pastor Dan has the gifts and passion of a Biblical teacher, which is the approach of his preaching and leadership. He is a winner of the Hunt-Fitch Preaching Institute’s Francis Asbury Award and has been published in a Lenten devotional journal. Dan is a graduate of the selective Reynolds Program in Church Leadership and has served on the boards of various community ministries.
Dan is married to Krista and they have three children.
