On November 18th 2018 the congregation officially voted to call Jeff Lynch to serve on the elder team at the Bridge. We are excited to welcome Jeff to the team and look forward to what God is going to do through his investment of time and energy in this role.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to get to know Jeff and his wife Jill yet, please take a moment to introduce yourself. Here is a little bio to give you a start:
Jeff was born in Kansas City and raised in suburban Chicago. He’s an alum of Colorado State where he attended from 1965-69 and met his wife, Jill while attending CSU. Jeff and Jill got married in December of 1968 and have 2 children: Ryan who lives in New York City and Trista who lives in Conifer.
Jeff was raised in a nominally Christian family with his parents and two sisters, but did not come to the Lord until age 30. Jill and Jeff thought they should expose the kids to church and through solid preaching and teaching and the Holy Spirit, they both accepted Christ in 1979. The Lynches were members of Bear Creek Presbyterian Church from February, 1980 until the church merged with Bridgeway to form The Bridge earlier this year. Jeff Spent 37 years as an insurance adjuster, manager, corporate trainer and Director of Training for an independent insurance adjusting company. Jeff also has a great zeal for fly fishing and golf.
Jeff has an extensive history of serving Jesus and His church. After retirement, Jeff volunteered and worked at HIV CareLink for 5 years. HIV CareLink is a Christian ministry helping people with HIV/AIDS in the Denver metro area. He has taught Children’s Sunday School (4 yr. olds), served as an elder, taught adult Sunday School, participates in the weekly pizza lunch outreach to BCHS, and has a passion for discipling men.
Jeff gratefully states, “The only reason I am here today is God’s grace and Christ’s sacrifice.”
