Being a pastor’s kid, Lydia isn’t a stranger to church ministry. She has sweet memories of attending kids camps with her siblings, cooking for church fellowships with her mom, and visiting shut-ins with her dad. Simply put, church is her happy place. Lydia is a graduate of Carson-Newman University with a degree in Elementary Education. She taught in the local school system before becoming a stay-at-home mom. She and her husband, Cristian, have been married for five years and have a handsome little boy named Mateo. If you can’t find Lydia at church, she’s probably at home singing “He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands” with Mateo or watching game shows with her older brother, Will, who has special needs. Lydia is overjoyed and deeply grateful to join the ChristWay Team; she’s eager to share the Good News with everyone.
