Head of Staff – Rev. Barb LeFevre Lyons

What I love most about Covenant is the embracing warmth of the people here.  But I also love the diversity, the intelligence and the open-mindedness I have found at this church.  I grew up in Colorado Springs, but after graduating from Fuller Theological Seminary with my M.Div., I spent 20 years serving churches in Southern California.  I have been the lead pastor at Covenant since 2007.  My vision for Covenant includes deepening our connections with each other and representing the Kingdom of God in how we love the community around us and the world.  I am married to Pierre Lyons, a flight attendant for Southwest Airlines, and we have two boys, Payce and Jaxon.

I am excited and blessed to join the Church of the Covenant staff and community (August 2013) all the way from Texas. I feel that Church of the Covenant is truly a Christ-centered community of love and grace. I am passionate about music and worship, along with volunteering as a leader to Covenant Youth.  I am a Master of Music graduate from Texas State University and a Bachelor of Music graduate from the University of Texas. I  have been an active voice teacher with students who have achieved membership in the Texas All-State Choir, superior ratings, and outstanding performer awards at the UIL State Solo and Ensemble competition. I previously served as the Director of Music at First United Methodist Church in Lockhart and Grand Saline, Texas. Email Joshua at joshua@presbycov.org.

I enjoy being a part of the Church of the Covenant staff as I am surrounded by smart, thoughtful, and fun people who take the responsibility of leading worship seriously.  I am able to share my gifts in a meaningful way with the trust and support of a fabulous group of colleagues.  While originally from New York, I consider myself a Coloradoan as I have lived here for the past 33 years.  I graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in Communications and Music.  I have been a church accompanist for the past 35 years as well as a private music instructor and music department head at a local private primary school. I have been privileged to serve Covenant for the past 10 years. I have a teenage daughter, two Golden Retrievers, and two tabby cats, and I enjoy time spent with all.
