Rev. Dr. Greg Lund

Rev. Dr. Greg Lund

Rev. Dr. Greg Lund is a native of Tacoma, Washington. He attended Seattle Pacific University where he met his wife, Kirsten, in Shakespeare class. The two spent a year in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China teaching English and sharing their faith. Not long afterward, Greg heard God’s call to ordained ministry, and attended Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA. He interned at First Presbyterian of Atlanta. Greg has pastored churches in Dalton, GA, as associate minister; Milwaukie, OR, as Pastor/Head of Staff (13 years), and most recently served at Westminster Presbyterian in GA (6 years). His doctorate is from Fuller Theological Seminary of Pasadena, CA.
Kirsten teaches English as a Second Language. Greg and Kirsti have two grown sons, Peter and Benjamin. Peter and his wife Kris live near Portland, OR, and have three children: Olivia, Gunnar, and newborn Gus. Benjamin is a singer, a graduate of the Jiulliard School, and still lives in NY.
For fun, Greg rides his bicycle, plays the violin, grows ferns, throws pottery, and bakes a mean loaf of Challah bread. Greg and Kirsti love travel, reading, and TV murder mysteries.

Sylvia Sullard

Director of Youth Ministries

Sylvia has been a part of the FHPC community for 22 years; all of them spent serving in youth ministry. Her story begins near Seattle, where her parents, both teachers, raised Sylvia and her younger brother. Sylvia attended Seattle Pacific University and went on to a youth ministry internship in Gig Harbor and then to Phoenix, AZ for 3.5 years before coming to Friday Harbor in 1997. Youth ministry is about being a signpost to middle & high school aged youth, pointing them to Jesus and the great news of God’s kingdom. We connect with young people through Devo’ and one-on-one discipleship appointments, and by supporting youth at sports events, band concerts, skating competitions, and academic gatherings. There is a team of adult leaders as well as a student leadership team that serves the middle school youth group. In all things, we seek to be authentic ambassadors for the gospel of Jesus and have a great time, sharing His kingdom with all we encounter.

Laura Concord

Coordinator/Choir Director

One of my first memories is standing in front of a large congregation of loving smiling faces and singing a solo of “Jesus Loves Me”. I was probably three years old. I grew up in a musical Christian family. My Dad was a professor of music at a Bible College and my Mom sang a wonderful alto. I studied music under my father’s tutelage. Over the years I have performed at many spectacular venues…the Seattle Opera House, with the Victoria Symphony, with the Bozeman Symphony, the Portland Convention Center both as soloist and choir member, but my heart always calls me back to singing with my fellow Christians. I’ve been privileged to be the music minister of several churches and am always grateful when God calls me to do this. I hope that many of our wonderful congregation will join with the choir in making a joyful noise unto the Lord!
