Boyd Lien, an ordained minister of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), has recently retired from Reid Memorial Presbyterian Church in Augusta, Georgia. He was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minn., just down the street from Lake Wobegon. After studying graphic art and art history at the University of Minnesota, he said "yes!" to God's call to ministry and entered McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago, Illinois, which included a life-changing year of study at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. Since his ordination in 1970, Boyd has served as pastor and educator with churches in Verona, New Jersey; New Castle, Pennsylvania; Eugene, Oregon; Houston, Texas; Richmond, Virginia; and Augusta, Georgia.
As church educator, he has created and published a variety of educational resources for all ages. Some resources have been published independently; others have been published by Abingdon Press, The Logos Program, and The Kerygma Program. In collaborating on the creation of Discovering the Bible, Boyd served as co-author and editor of that first edition of the Resource Book and is now the editor of the Resource Book, author of the Leader's Guide and designer of Graphics for the new edition, Discovering the Bible: A New Generation. He has authored the Leader's Guide for Second Corinthians: Living Letters in Christ and created the slide presentation for that study as well.
Boyd and Pam have two grown children. Sarah, who is Director of Children's Ministry at First Presbyterian in Raleigh North Carolina, is married to Craig Finnerty, and they are the parents of Alex (the Great!). Justin, who is an artist, lives in Augusta. Oliver and Natalie (two humans disguised as cats) complete the family.
