Mac & Beth Lynch - Music
Mac and his wife, Beth, reside in Apex, NC and started their ministry at Catawba Springs in September of 2012. He was born and raised in Cape Cod, Massachusetts where he grew up in a Christian home. He attended Bob Jones University where he received both a Bachelor of Arts (1976) and a Master of Arts (1979) in sacred music.
After receiving his degrees, Mac traveled with The Wilds Evangelistic Team for three years before marrying Beth. While “on the road,” Mac and Beth were blessed with two sons, Christopher and Caleb.
In 1988, Mac became part of the full-time music staff at The Wilds Christian Camp and Conference Center near Rosman, North Carolina. Through that ministry, he has composed, arranged, published, and ministered with God-honoring Christian music.
Having ministered in hundreds of local churches, the Lynches are sensitive to the needs of the church. This is evidenced by their work in producing and publishing many choral arrangements and recordings. Their desire is to see the Lord Jesus Christ exalted through Christ-honoring music and to be a blessing and encouragement to believers in the local church.
