Rev. Willie James Lyons 


The Greenfield Church Family welcomed Pastor W. James Lyons to lead the flock in 2011.  Under the leadership of Pastor Lyons, Greenfield Presbyterian Church has become a ministry reaching out in concern and service in the lives of people and communities, sharing the love and good news of Jesus Christ.  Pastor Lyons' vision is to empower people through worship celebrations, relevant bible study, and engaging in daily prayer we will become a spiritually transformed community of faith.  

Pastor W. James Lyons was born in Desoto County Mississippi to Osbie and Earlene Lyons; he is the oldest of seven siblings.  He graduated from Olive Branch High School and attended Professional Truck Driving School in the state of Missouri. Subsequently, he worked as a Professional Truck Driver for over 20 years. He served in the United States Armed Forces as a United Nations Honor Guard Special Troop.  He is a United States disabled Veteran. After being honorably discharged, he continued life in Desoto County and married  Gail Baptist Lyons of Southaven, Mississippi.  Gail is the daughter of the late Mr. & Mrs. John D. Baptist, lifetime residents of Desoto County Mississippi.  Gail is a graduate of Rust College.  They have three children; Ahsaki, Obadiah and Aisha.

Greenfield Presbyterian Church mission under Pastor Lyons is that we exist for the glory of God as a community of faith, hope, love, and witness. We offer service to all people for the up building of Godís kingdom. We live together in unity and work together in ministry as disciples of Jesus Christ, bound to him and to one another as a part of the body of Christ according to the principles of faith, mission and order of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
