lynn peacheyLYNN PEACHEY

IMC Member

Growing up as a child of missionaries, my life began with the understanding that we were created for something more than ourselves.  Eventually this understanding became the purpose of my life as I allowed my relationship with God to direct me to full time ministry. The EFCC has been an important part of my life for 33 years. Beginning with ten years of pastoral ministry in an EFCC church in a rural Alberta community with my husband Richard led to 14 years of overseas missionary service at Black Forest Academy as staff of the EFCCM.
