Lydia Gard

Lydia’s call to homeland missionary work came unexpectedly and has been followed by excitement, confirmation, and a heavy dose of reliance on God. She graduated from Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana, in May 2018 with a bachelor of arts in English and a minor in journalism. She learned of the editor position less than a week after graduation and felt immediately that it would be an excellent fit for her. The opportunity to use her passion and skills at a God-centered organization thrills and humbles her.

As editor, Lydia ensures the clear communication of God’s work as OMS missionaries and partners share their stories. She assists in editing books written by OMS missionaries, articles for OMS Outreach magazine, and many other written works of OMS. She also helps with OMS book ministry sales in-office and on Amazon. Lydia enjoys using her “nerdiness” and love for grammar in a way that furthers the Gospel.

Lydia continues to feel God pursuing her and growing her desire and need for him. She values authenticity, vulnerability, and deep conversations. She is refreshed by the many God-loving and kind people she encounters at OMS. She is grateful for two generous and loving parents, two wonderful older brothers and sisters-in-law, a precious nephew and adorable niece, one crazy cat, an endearing dog, and one spunky kitten of her own.

Lydia thrives on a mixture of time with those she loves and time by herself. She tends to process life through the written word (especially poetry), which correlates directly with her role as associate editor at the OMS World Headquarters in Greenwood, Indiana.
