Lindy (Leonard) Wolner grew up in Minnesota and made the decision at age 21 to become a follower of Christ while a student at the University of Minnesota. Lindy was baptized in October 1974 at Edina Baptist Church, Minnesota.

Lindy and his family lived overseas for more than half of his 30-year career with the federal government, and as a result have a deep appreciation for the role of the local church in carrying out God’s purpose for the nations (Psalm 46:10) and equipping followers of Christ to be global-missions minded.

Now retired, Lindy is a member of the Cherrydale Baptist Church choir and also serves as a group leader for Men’s Bible Study Fellowship in the metro DC area. Lindy and his wife Jan have been married for 39 years. They have two children and delight in their five grandchildren.
