Hello! Thanks for stopping by the Lynn Valley Youth Ministry page!
 
 
My name is Rick Wagner. I have been the youth pastor at Lynn Valley for nine years, but have over 30 years of experience in youth ministry. In addition to my work at Lynn Valley, I also work at the Wandell Early Leaning Center in Elizabethton City Schools.
I have been married to my wife Becky for 32 years and we have three children: Rachel, Michael, and Rikki. When I am not working, I enjoy fishing, playing golf, and watching college football.

About the REFUGE:
We are renovating the annex building for our youth. We want to give the youth a space that is their own, where they can feel safe and at home. The REFUGE is that place. It will be youth friendly with Christ as the focus. We will offer an environment where youth can worship and fellowship with one another while also having fun and learning about Christ.
