Meet the Pastor of Coates Street Presbyterian Church, Reverend Joel W. Lynn.
Joel grew up in Naperville, IL. He has a bachelor’s degree in pastoral ministry from Olivet Nazarene University (2015) and a Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary (2018). Joel was the recipient of the Sylvanus Carter Homiletics Award for preaching excellence, and of the Presbyterian Leadership Award, Princeton Seminary’s highest scholarship. This is Joel’s first church as an ordained pastor. You might find Joel around town running the trails at Rothwell Park or playing basketball at the local YMCA.
