Peter Lyon

Peter Lyon

Campus Minister

Peter grew up in the city of Philadelphia and attended Pennsylvania State University, where he graduated in 2007 with a degree in History. At Penn State, he met his wife (and best friend) Sarah, who graduated with a degree in Photography in 2008. They were married quickly after school and moved back to the Philadelphia area. After a number of years working in too many different fields, Peter felt the call to ministry and from 2014-2019 he worked at Covenant Church in Doylestown, PA while simultaneously completing a Master of Divinity at Missio Seminary. Peter and Sarah have two wonderful children, Wesley and Mina.

Ian Jameson

Ian Jameson


Ian grew up in Rowlett, Texas, just east of Dallas. He went to Texas A&M University where he earned a degree in Psychology. While there, he joined RUF (having heard about it from his older sisters) and found a community unlike any other. Ian hopes to continue further into ministry and eventually into seminary.
If he is not playing video games, or hanging around his house with a coffee in hand, Ian is likely writing one of his four "in-progress" fantasy books. That, or he's just playing D&D.
