Lyon to speak at Oct. 2 Christ, Church, Culture Event

Dr. Larry Lyon, from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, will be the speaker at Louisiana Christian University’s second Christ, Church, Culture (C3) event of the fall semester on Oct. 2.

Lyon will be speaking on “Faith and Sexuality: Understanding our Cultural Moment.” The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. in Guinn Auditorium and is free and open to the public.

Lyon serves as the NOBTS senior vice president for business administration and is an associate professor of ethics.

Lyon’s academic interests rest primarily in the areas of Christ and culture, public theology, and Christian ethics. He is interested in how Christians participate in the life of the church and the life of the state while being fervent witnesses to the Lordship of Christ in all areas of life. Lyon believes that Christians have the strong ability to demonstrate what is possible for human flourishing by modeling Christ-likeness in all the realms of a person’s vocation.

He and his wife, Stephanie, who also serves NOBTS as the Women’s Life Coordinator, have three daughters. The Lyon family church membership is with First Baptist New Orleans.

LCU typically holds three C3 events each semester. The purpose of these events is to lovingly challenge the troubling culture we live in with the biblical truth and love of Christ. Previous speakers have addressed critical race theory, human sexuality, abortion, and many other hot-button issues.
