Meet Our Staff

Here are just a few of the dedicated people that lead and serve at FHPC.

Rev. Dr. Greg Lund

Dr. Greg Lund

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

Spiritual Formation Director

Sylvia has been a part of the FHPC community for 22 1/2 years; all of them spent serving in youth ministry, until May 2019. 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.  After 30 years of serving in youth ministry and receiving a certificate of Spiritual Formation and Direction from the Renovarè Institute, Sylvia has now shifted into a new role of Spiritual Formation Director.  This means, instead of building program tools to primarily high school teens, she is now taking those skills and considering the wider church, with a focus on teaching and practicing formation tools that encourage us in our growth to become like Jesus.  Sylvia will be in a teaching role, both filling in for Pastor Greg from time to time and working with church committees to create more opportunities for both discipleship and relational fun.  As a credentialed Spiritual Director, Sylvia can offer spiritual direction to those who are interested.   

Terry Forsyth

Organist

Terry was born 1952 in Los Angeles area and raised half his school years in Nevada. He started playing for church in eighth grade. After actively serving a full enlistment in the navy for six years, Terry earned his BA in Music (music composition) at Gardner-    Webb College.

Laura Concord

Coordinator/Choir Director

One of my first memories is of 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!
