Lyn Cook
Community Group Director

Dear ,

We're very excited to share with you that Lyn Cook has joined the East Side staff team as our newest Community Group Director. Lyn brings over 16 years of ministry experience working with Campus Crusade for Christ in many roles including ministry in Alabama and East Asia and most recently with Priority Associates here in the city. Lyn moved to New York in 2008 and has served as a leader in the East Side women's group where she discovered community that was vital to her transition into life in Manhattan.

Lyn enjoys running and getting to know new people and places. She lives on the East Side with her husband, Clay, and twin daughters, Emma and Hope. We're thrilled to have such a great addition to our team! We look forward to the many ways God will use Lyn and the other Community Group Directors to equip leaders and build community here on the East Side.  

In Christ,

Ed Sirya

Director of Ministry, East Side
