About George Lockyer
Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and its vicinity, I left the East Coast for college at the University of Wyoming on an athletic scholarship. At college I met a cowgirl named Deb from Thermopolis, Wyoming who later became my wife. After graduation, we moved three times in six years as I served in the Air Force missile and aerospace division. In the midst of this we had our two children, Brita and Travis. After the Air Force, we ran a small business in Southern California. It was during this time while attending church in El Toro, California that I heard the gospel. God awakened me from my spiritually dead condition and I put my faith in Jesus Christ whose substitutionary death on the cross paid for my sin.
In 1981, we packed up and moved to Deb’s grandparents’ farm just outside of Lincoln, Nebraska. We purchased part of the farm and still live there today with our horses, chickens, dogs and cats. Since moving to Nebraska, I have worked as a manager of quality assurance at a local factory, a pastor at a church, Christian school teacher, coach, and now I am the coordinator of spiritual development at Lincoln Christian School and a part-time pastor at Country Bible Church.
In summary, I am a follower of Jesus Christ; a husband to Deb; a father to Brit and her husband Bill and to Travis and his wife Megan, a grandfather to Simon, Thadd, Nathanael, Eli, Isaac, Ezra, Asa, and Xavier.
