PASTOR LYNN LAMBERTY
Pastor Lynn Lamberty started serving Augusta United Methodist Church in July, 2019. A native of Nebraska, Lynn served churches in Kansas City, Kansas and Topeka before coming to Augusta.
Lynn graduated from the University of Nebraska Lincoln with a Bachelor of Arts degree, from the University of Notre Dame with a Juris Doctorate degree and from Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas City with a Masters of Divinity. He actively practiced law in Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas before moving to a career in ministry in 1996. Lynn has lived and worked in towns as small as 1,500 people and as large as 2 million.
Lynn is married to Rose Lamberty. They have no children together, but she has five adult children from a previous marriage and ten grandchildren. The children and grandchildren all live in the Kansas City and Topeka areas.
Lynn says this about what brought him to being a minister:
“I had been a Christian for a long time but God kept pushing at me to do more. I have a passion for doing what I can to work with congregations to reach more and more people with the Good News of Jesus Christ. That requires us to be willing to change what we do and how we do it to stay relevant and connected with the people around us. Children and youth are particularly important to celebrate, encourage and hear. I have a great partner in Rose for the journey with Augusta that is ahead. We look forward to the years to come!”
